Standard rebates and overriders
Provides a buyer with visibility of rebate earnings from deals linked to purchase volume or value. Rebates may earn across all purchases or be limited to specific products.
Growth and bonus rebates
Allows a buyer to track rebate earnings from volume or value growth, or achievement of a target threshold.
Margin support contracts
Allows a distributor to calculate revenue required from suppliers where margin support contracts are in place for specific customers and/or specific products.
Volume and value discounts
Allows rebate earnings from both volume-based and value-based deals to be calculated and tracked.
Tiered discount rates
Allows rebate earnings from volume and value deals that have a tiered rate to be calculated accurately and reliably.
Global and local contracts
Allows a multi-branch or multi-company organisations (such as buying groups) to calculate and track rebate earnings from complex deals that are based on aggregated group purchases or where different units in the organisation earn different rebate rates.
Manufacturer and distributor contracts
Allows an "end user" organisation to differentiate between off-invoice discounts offered by distributors and rebates paid retrospectively by manufacturers and brand owners of the products used.
Net and Net-Net price analysis
Provides a buyer with up-to-date visibility of Net (of distributor discount) and Net-Net (of distributor discount and manufacturer rebate) pricing.
Automatically produced invoices to suppliers for rebate earnings.
Automatically compiled data reports in support of supplier invoices.
Allocate deals to an automated invoicing schedule, allowing multiple deals to be invoiced according to the schedule and, optionally, combine multiple deals on a single invoice.
Sales and purchase transaction integration
Allows rebates to be calculated automatically from raw sales and/or purchase transactions accumulating in sales and purchase order processing systems. Sales can be based on sales orders or invoices, and purchases can be based on purchase orders or goods received.
In situations where a distributor has pricing support from a manufacturer, this facility allows the distributor to check the absolute margin of sales orders as they are placed (taking manufacturer support into account), and so highlighting incorrect selling prices and ensuring that all margin support deals are registered in the system ready for invoicing.
Year on year reporting
Review spend and rebate performance for the current year vs. previous year, vs. forecast for the full year as well as reviewing actuals so far.
Allow suppliers to view relevant information online.
Internal and external contract signoff workflow
Have deals authorised and signed off online. A configurable rules engine routes each deal based on its contract value. Invite suppliers to login to review and sign-off deals as well.
"What if" scenarios
Forecasting tools to assist in buying decisions. For instance, it may be that buying a few extra cases of a product will bring the total spend up to a higher tier thereby securing a significant rebate or overrider. The system can make recommendations on what and when to buy to maximise the benefit of your deals.
