Business Modeler Self-Sufficiency
CostPerform includes ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) functionality with flexible and easy to use features that enable Business Modelers to automate the collection of source data, straightforward transformations and data mapping to load into CostPerform with no or limited IT support. Model results from CostPerform can be converted into common formats for other data warehouses and reporting systems to use. CostPerform is not intended to be a full functioning ETL tool typically used by IT. It provides an appropriate level of functionality for model owners to be more self-sufficient, with less reliance on IT, and to more efficiently transform data with less manipulation in excel.
The CostPerform solution has evolved over the last 20 years. It is a proven solution with an impressive active user base of over 450 customers, mostly in Europe and growing in the U.S., Australia and beyond. The software is very reasonably priced, offering most of the functions, features and technology provided by other vendors for a fraction of the price.
PCS Consulting has specialized in the design and implementation of Profitability and Cost Management systems using off-the shelf software to provide decision makers with valid economic modeling decision support systems that help them make economically sound decisions to achieve their profitability objectives. We have been implementing the CostPerform solution for over 10 years.
