Cost-­‐Allocation Process Automation Helps Global Athletic Retailer Discover Savings

Veraction helped client reduce labor costs by 60%. The information generated by our solution is an essential tool in their ongoing efforts to manage freight costs.

The Client & the Challenge:

A global athletic retailer reviewed its cost allocation process, looking to enhance accuracy, reduce labor costs and provide the information needed to monitor freight spend. The client’s internal team agreed that properly assigning costs and effectively monitoring spending would require a complex cost-allocation structure based on multiple product lines, divisions, groups and departments.

  • Veraction suggested the following steps:
  • Map and document the current process
  • Identify labor-reducing automation opportunities
  • Design a methodology that could assign costs with greater precision, guarantee accuracy, and provide necessary controls

The Veraction Solution:

  • Built a dynamic, customized, rules-based, table-driven coding engine designed to accommodate even the most complex updates quickly and easily.
  • Allowed the client to quickly and easily update business rules through a secure portal. A thorough annual review enabled continual process optimization.
