The key differences between CostPerform and Acorn

CostPerform offers a more comprehensive and widely endorsed solution than Acorn. Due to its many industry templates and customizable features, it’s very user-friendly and a great way to benefit from extensive experience in specific domains.

Just like CostPerform, Acorn provides complete transparency into costs and profitability, but also offers more specialized (shared) services. For example, Acorn has a dedicated tool – the Shared Services Manager – which is designed to manage and simplify shared services cost allocations.

Making the right choice for your business

Both CostPerform and Acorn offer robust features tailored to specific business needs. If your organization prioritizes specialized shared service management and needs a dedicated team to guide you throughout the whole project lifecycle, Acorn might be the better choice. On the other hand, Costperform’s wide range of features, industry templates, and professional endorsement make it a comprehensive and reliable choice for diverse cost and performance management initiatives.
