EXA GVC is a unique solution, that enables companies to calculate consolidated product costs and profits along the entire global value chain, without losing track of the original underlying cost component split.
We use EXA’s GVC solution for multiple business functions and have found it very useful for all aspects of financial consolidation. Since implementing GVC, the accuracy of our cost and inventory calculation within group accounting has improved drastically. Considering that GVC works across ERP systems and across country boundaries, this is remarkable.
I personally think that EXA’s GVC solution is unmatched regarding its capabilities to create a truly global consolidated cost & profit footprint across the entire value chain.
I firmly believe that it can be leveraged for various business functions such as accounting, controlling and logistics.
As for EXA, I think the company has demonstrated an impressive growth path, and in my role as Program and Project Manager at Roche, I am delighted to work with functional and technical team members from EXA. EXA consultants not only bring a very high level of expertise, but their quality consciousness and eagerness to deliver successfully is also noteworthy. This is once again being demonstrated in the current collaboration project, where Roche and EXA are working closely together.
