We provide a new product cost compass to progressive companies, bringing excellent transparency to your overhead costs, increasing your competiveness and profitability.

In a post-industrial society, soft refinements and investments are dramatically increasing as 'overhead costs' in businesses. If you shine some light on those costs, you can start doing something about it.

Already decades ago alerts were clear a paradigm shift was underway, from industrial production to a customer and services perspective, where 'soft' refinements and investments -  such as IT, process development, human resources, creativity, marketing and sales - are much larger parts of a product or service than 'hard' components like material, production, delivery or workshop salaries.

This shift requires a fresh take on how we manage and control our businesses. But in spite of this, financial and IT communities have continued to act on the basis of the industrial T-Ford perspective.

This has resulted in tremendous bureaucracy and exploding overhead costs, instead of efficient activity based process orientation in a post-industrial thinking, leaving promising initiatives, such as Lean, in difficulties addressing businesses as a whole.
