Managing by product margins only gets you so far, what investors really want is faster profit flow from the assets. To deliver that, you have to first measure and then manage profit per hour
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Profit Velocity Solutions has solved a long-standing problem facing asset-intensive manufacturers worldwide, by introducing an “integrated profit planning and control information platform” called PV Accelerator™. This advanced information solution enables management teams of manufacturers selling broad, complex product lines to raise annual profits by 3+% of revenues, or $30M per $1B in revenues.
Built around its patented Profit Velocity® technology, PV Accelerator is an enterprise-scale, profit performance improvement solution. It enables manufacturing management teams to continuously fine-tune their mix of products, customers, and assets to accelerate overall cash flow and achieve a level of control over profit performance never before possible.
PV Accelerator can be linked to a manufacturer’s existing ERP and other systems in a couple of weeks and hosted wherever the manufacturer’s data resides. Accessible via browsers and iPads, PV Accelerator delivers vivid, actionable, profit-improving “what-if” insights to executives and managers in marketing, sales, production, operations, and finance from data currently residing in existing systems. Profit Velocity has been used by producers of specialty chemicals, electronic components, packaging, industrial parts, building products, textiles and metals to adjust the mix of business and achieve significant profit gains.
To meet shareholder demands, manufacturers need to keep finding new ways to squeeze better returns from production assets. That means speeding up the flow of cash from the equipment. But until now few manufacturers could even calculate, much less manage, profit-per-machine-hour by order, by product, by customer, etc.
“Managing by product margins only gets you so far, what investors really want is faster profit flow from the assets. To deliver that, you have to first measure and then manage profit per hour in detail," said Profit Velocity Solutions founder and chairman, Michael Rothschild. “Using PV Accelerator decision-makers across the organization can instantly simulate realistic options, revise their plans, and track actual results vs. plans in support of an ongoing enterprise-wide process of continuous profit improvement.”
PV Accelerator is available to manufacturers only through the company’s global partner network of leading management consulting firms, who advise operating management teams and private equity investors on ways to enhance profit performance in manufacturing businesses.
The company's state-of-the-art, integrated profit improvement information platform was featured recently in a detailed review by Ventana Research, a leading industry analyst in the enterprise performance management marketplace. It has also been featured in an IndustryWeek article entitled "The Missing Metric in Manufacturing," as well as in Big4.com and BusinessFinance magazine.
