Enable, a global provider of collaborative rebate management software, today announced it has been selected by Wolseley Canada. Wolseley Canada joins other notable building materials distributors and buying groups on Enable’s rapidly growing North American client roster.
As a leading wholesale distributor to plumbing, HVAC, waterworks and industrial markets in Canada, Wolseley Canada provides a vast inventory of products from top manufacturers through a coast-to-coast network of over 220 branches supported by a streamlined supply chain.
“By automatically forecasting rebate accruals, and automating invoicing and cash reconciliation against those accruals, Enable’s software will provide Wolseley Canada better visibility and control of income. In addition, it will help us to execute targeted rebate agreements with our suppliers, meeting joint objectives and achieving mutually profitable growth,” said Eric Whaley, CIO of Wolseley Canada.
“Enable has already proven these capabilities during the last 10 years with Wolseley in the UK,” he continued.
Wolseley Canada joins other leading building materials distributors and buying groups using Enable’s Rebate Management software in North America and dozens more in the UK which benefit from its ability to create, track and manage collaborative trading agreements with suppliers to drive targeted purchasing and sales behaviour that results in growth for both parties. The rebate software automatically calculates precise rebate amounts, generates accurate accruals and provides a transparent audit trail to help ensure compliance.
“Enable’s dominance in the UK building products industry has attracted the attention of industry leaders in North America,” said Andrew Butt, Co-Founder of Enable. “This expansion is another step in fulfilling our vision to help distributors, wholesalers and buying groups collaborate with their suppliers and drive improved profits for all,” he concluded.
