SAS® Activity-Based Management

SAS has become the world leader in activity-based management (ABM) solutions through the acquisition of ABC Technologies. ABC Technologies' Oros ABM was the No.1 activity-based costing (ABC) software brand for more than a decade. With the new generation of its ABM solution - SAS Activity-Based Management - SAS continues to lead the market in ABM with the largest ABM user base in the world.

Activity-Based Costing and Performance Management
Activity-Based Costing might have lost ground in the metrics world but that shouldn't diminish its importance in performance management. (PDF: 52KB)

Today, activity-based costing and management is widely adopted because it provides a more complete picture of the profits and costs of doing business than traditional cost accounting. Understanding true product profitability, customer profitability or customer life time value in any industry fundamentally requires ABM.

However, traditional ABM solutions, mainly focused on modeling, do not offer integrated capabilities in data management, reporting and analysis for a successful ABM implementation. SAS is the only ABM vendor with an end-to-end solution that combines integrated data management, business modeling, reporting and analysis all on one platform.

More than any other costing solution, SAS Activity-Based Management:

  • Supports all activity-based costing methodologies, including bottom-up, consumption-driven ABC, to best meet your business needs.
  • Offers a highly visual, flexible and multidimensional modeling environment with a point-and-click graphical user interface.
  • Leverages web-based reporting and analysis to enable cost, process and profitability intelligence to be quickly shared across the organisation.
  • Provides a complete and integrated data management solution with data access engines and data transformation capabilities required for successful ABM implementation.

SAS Activity-Based Management enables strategic and operational decisions that maximise profit, reduce costs and streamline processes by determining the cost of those processes and the profitability of products, customers and business segments. Specifically, with SAS Activity-Based Management, organisations across industries can:

  • Gain insights about the true profitability of products, customers and business units.
  • Manage process costs by understanding business activities and their cost drivers.
  • Identify and predict capacity or resource requirements.
