Acorn Systems Delivers Accurate Customer Profitability Analysis

Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 24, 2008 – Leland Putterman, Chief Executive Officer of Acorn Systems, recently participated in an exclusive interview with Ron Powell and the Business
Intelligence Network ( In this interview, Putterman explains the importance of business profitability management and how Acorn Systems
delivers accurate customer profitability analysis at the lowest total cost of ownership with enterprise-scale packaged software solutions.

“The value proposition for profitability analysis is enormous – generally 5-15% of revenue. However, profitability analysis has failed in the past because it hasn’t been
institutionalized as a formal process with a single owner,” says Leland Putterman, Chief Executive Officer of Acorn Systems. “Instead, companies have traditionally looked at
profitability in business silos only able to get partial visibility. The lack of an accurate, holistic view has made it impossible to enact meaningful change to improve profitability. Acorn’s
clients are able to overcome this obstacle because our technology and methodology actually embrace the complexity and scale of large corporations. We give them the visibility they need to
understand where and why they are making and losing money. And most importantly, we give them a roadmap as to how they can take meaningful actions to improve profitability.”

“Acorn Systems is focused on a very key area for our audience – how to improve, measure and analyze profitability,” says Ron Powell, Cofounder and Editorial Director of the
Business Intelligence Network. “Because profit analysis for most companies is very fragmented, they don’t get an accurate reflection of the entire organization. Acorn Systems enables
companies to look at their business holistically and effectively measure, analyze and improve profitability and performance.”
