Competitive Advantage through Collaboration: 9th FACTON User Conference Europe


The annual summit for costing specialists, the 9th FACTON User Conference, will take place on November 24, 2016 at the Parkhotel Stuttgart Messe-Airport, Germany. The theme of this year’s event is “Collaborative Costing”. This puts the focus squarely on collaboration as a central tenet of Enterprise Product Costing. But the event covers more than just collaboration between individual departments in a single enterprise; it also sheds light on cooperation between suppliers and OEMs and, just as importantly, between users and FACTON.

The FACTON User Conference is the annual summit for costing experts who want to share insight on the impact of current market developments on product cost management. “The cost structures of products that are produced and marketed internationally are becoming increasingly complex. Enterprises that do not have an overview of these structures quickly lose their competitive advantage. An effective antidote is open collaboration on product costing not only within one’s own enterprise but also with business partners.  After all: A high degree of collaboration and more mature costing processes go hand in hand,” explains Alexander M. Swoboda, CEO of FACTON GmbH. 


This year’s User Conference agenda also has something for everyone: Alongside further development of the FACTON EPC solution and its contribution to enterprise-wide, standardized product costing, there will also be practice-oriented presentations by FACTON users and partners. As always, there will be plenty of time and opportunity at the conference to engage in personal conversations, directly share experiences and ideas and discuss specific issues.
