Fast and stable reporting with Mercur in the chocolate factory

The chocolate manufacturer Icam have saved time and gained stability in their reporting and planning processes with the help of Mercur. They are monthly producing financial statements based on standard costs of goods sold and formulas to define accruals and adjustments. Moreover, they can easily update their forecasts monthly with the system's driver-based calculation functions. Report packages for the management are then created based on predefined templates.

Icam used an Excel-based solution before Mercur Business Control and can assure stability of Mercur’s calculation methods and the ability to access any actual, forecast and budget data in a single secure database.


The solution lends itself very well to make an analysis over time and compare the results of different periods. In addition, they use the system very much to drill down into different business dimensions to perform dynamic performance analyzes.



ICAM is the leading company in the sector of non-conventional chocolate production: organic, fair trade, sugar-free and gluten-free. ICAM is thus an ambassador worldwide for Italian quality in the art of making chocolate. Behind this role are the manufacturing processes which since the company was founded in 1946 have been based on creativity, cutting edge technology and a watchful eye on the market, which contributes to the success of the chocolate produced in Lecco, Italy, for consumers worldwide.
