Cost allocation and profitability analysis

Allocate costs easily and calculate returns quickly

Cost allocation, apportionment, and profitability analysis are a part of everyday life in finance. The larger an organization, the more complex and time-consuming these tasks become. Instead of eternal manual calculations and formulas, Jedox offers ready-made financial logic for the automatic calculation of costs and profitability.

Detailed cost allocations for better profitability analysis

Allocating spent resources in terms of costs can be very time-consuming, particularly if a detailed allocation is to be made according to different allocation keys. A breakdown of all costs by products, product groups, regions and others must be done each time according to its own logic. These may also change as the organization grows.

However, to analyze the profitability of individual profit centers, the comprehensive and cause-related allocation of costs are a necessary first step. The more precise and detailed they are, the better statements can be made about the return on investment of the individual units and measures. However, a detailed analysis also requires more data. This often has to be exported manually, merged and then processed into the desired information using complex formulas and rules. This is where the potential for automation is hidden.
