How Enable can cure your rebate management headaches

Product FeaturesFebruary 14, 2015

We help buying groups, wholesale distributors, and retailers protect margin, accelerate cash flow and reduce risk in their trading agreements. Using Enable, the market-leading rebate management software, clients typically manage between £100m and £30bn of rebatable purchases annually.

The complexities involved in retrospective payments on trade agreements and the sheer volume of these contracts, are often difficult to model in manual systems such as spreadsheets and basic accounting software. Organizations opting to calculate, forecast and accrue rebate income in this way leave themselves at risk of inaccuracies, missed opportunities and supplier disputes.

Rebate management software meets these problems head on, by removing the risks associated with manual processes and delivering a streamlined process that handles complex trade agreements in the following ways.

Is Excel the most dangerous piece of software in the world?

The Deal EconomyAugust 11, 2014

Recently there have been a number of articles published on the possible dangers of Microsoft Excel, with NewStatesman citing that “Microsoft’s calculator is partially to blame for JPMorgan losing $9bn, and a lot more besides”.

Many of us at Enable love Excel and use spreadsheets daily. Spreadsheets are often inexpensive to create, highly flexible, mostly easy to use and very easy to share. But what makes Excel so great is also its Achilles’ heel.

Many business processes start small. For example: recording financial progress, tracking budgets, or managing pricing on complex deal. And each spreadsheet often has a small team sharing, inputting and extracting data from it. In this environment Excel can offer a simple solution.
