Integrate with the DealTrack API: a concise view of product, transaction & rebate data

Application programming interfaces — more commonly known as APIs — are essential building blocks for modern, high quality applications. With just a few simple clicks, you can do everything from order a takeaway, book a holiday, track a delivery, or even copy and paste a link from an email into a Microsoft Word document, and APIs work behind the scenes to make all these activities possible.

That is why Enable is pleased to announce a new DealTrack API that will provide a simple interface through clients can interact with all the data behind their deals, rebates, and much, much more.

For over a decade, our rebate management software has helped merchants, buying groups, wholesale distributors and retailers to drive mutually profitable growth with suppliers, whilst improving cash flow and reducing risk. That’s why we call it the supplier success platform.

What is special pricing collaboration?

With ever-more complex special pricing agreements being created in an already vast and competitive market, the ability to efficiently maintain pricing flexibility between manufacturers and distributors has become essential. That is why Enable is pleased to announce a new DealTrack feature that we are calling ‘special pricing collaboration’.

For over a decade, our rebate management software has helped merchants, buying groups, wholesale distributors and retailers to drive mutually profitable growth with suppliers, whilst improving cash flow and reducing risk.

Alongside rebate agreements, manufacturers and distributors are increasingly collaborating around ‘special pricing agreements’, commonly abbreviated to SPAs, and often referred to as ‘contract support’ in the UK building materials sector. By necessity, SPAs are collaborative arrangements whereby manufacturers and distributors team up to grow sales through strategic pricing that is designed to grow competitive market share.

With SPAs gaining in popularity, and the inherently collaborative nature of these pricing mechanisms, Enable in investing in a new software product that allows manufacturers and distributors to implement and administer these deals in a seamless and automated manner.

How DealTrack software can cure your rebate management headaches

DealTrack FeaturesFebruary 14, 2015

We help buying groups, wholesale distributors, and retailers protect margin, accelerate cash flow and reduce risk in their trading agreements. Using DealTrack, our 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. Organisations 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.

Introducing DealTrack

DealTrack FeaturesOctober 3, 2012

Stratford-upon-Avon based software company Enable has today launched a new subsidiary called DealTrack Ltd. The new company has been created by entrepreneurs Denys Shortt (who also owns DCS Europe) and Andrew Butt who have combined forces with fellow directors David Hunt, Andy James and Dan Wood.

DealTrack will be located in the new £1 million Enable headquarters in Timothy’s Bridge Road and will create up to 5 new jobs over the coming year.

DealTrack creates web based software that simplifies business-to-business trading, unlocks hidden revenue and maximises profit in trading agreements.

For over a decade, Enable has helped distributors, wholesalers and buying groups manage the income they receive from suppliers and customers. Denys and Andrew have identified a key area where businesses are continually throwing away hard earned revenue.

Denys Shortt comments: “I am delighted to be announcing DealTrack — an exciting new business created in tough economic times. We have found a niche here. DealTrack will transform how companies manage their business deals and help them lock down profits. It has been tried and tested.”

Leading the way in supplier management

DealTrack FeaturesApril 18, 2009

Supplier management is a critical discipline, especially for "goods for resale" businesses. Improving the visibility of an organisation’s purchase related data and systematising the associated business processes are essential factors in optimising revenue, reducing costs and managing risk in this area.

Establishing agreements for retrospective rebate payments from suppliers is a commonplace commercial method adopted by buyers. It is often a notoriously complex area to track and control, frequently creating administrative headaches for companies and absorbing valuable resource in the process.
