Case study: ABC Program
“The help we received from MyABCM’s tech support was beyond our expectations. Their level of support was outstanding and they were always available to help us with whatever we needed. They maintained this high standard even after the implementation of the tool, and they now help with the extraction of all the types of information that we need to generate our various analysis reports.”

To improve the management of costs and expenses and to get to know them in greater detail, which is fundamental to sustaining Unimed-Rio’s business. To seek cost reductions through more advanced and accurate analyses of this business’s characteristics.
MyABCM’s ABC costing program was chosen to meet these expectations technically and financially. Now we can elaborate detailed analyses of all types of cost objects, covering all the company’s activities, and seek total unit costs that are very close to the business reality.
The ABC costing system offered by MyABCM has allowed us to perform a very specific mapping of our most relevant business costs, identifying precisely all the costs generated by this process. The implementation of the ABC methodology has created a new commitment to improve the control of our activities, and now we intend to disseminate these gains generated by this application throughout the entire company to change our culture in every area.
