Avoid friction over rebate claims

When rebate terms aren’t clear to all parties, you can wind up in disputes over how much is owed. With Enable, you work with your customers to review, discuss and approve deals – removing friction.

Poor insight into rebates owed can lead to inaccurate financial reporting, forecasting and disclosure. With Enable, you can accrue and forecast rebate payments accurately and in real time.

Transforming customer rebate management in the construction industry

From tracking complex deals in spreadsheets

  • Process was seen to be lacking in verification and in tracking.
  • They realized that it wasn’t sufficient just to manage the receipt of rebates, but also to manage their purchasing in order to improve their planning.
  • Unsuccessfully tried to manage the subtle, and complex nuances involved in their rebate management including the number of deals, the many different vendors they deal with, and the many rebate variations.

...to using data to make proactive purchasing in the future

  • Can determine the rebate dollars they anticipate earning much more precisely than in the past.
  • Have already been able to maximize the rebate dollars they are entitled to and have  found missing rebate that vendors don’t even know is due. 
  • Investing in a tool to make them more profitable to shareholders, which is all their employees, would be dollars well spent. 

From manually processing rebates in Excel and an ERP...

  • Lost too much time manually inputting data and extracting the numbers out
  • With so many deals and customers, problems arose with how invoices were posted
  • The high volume of data was difficult to manage with one person analyzing it

...to using rebates to grow the business

  • The ability to see what deals they can put in place with customers to mutually grow together
  • Forecasting capabilities means they can track how close their merchants are to reaching the next band
  • Having the deals all in one place means improving response times with customers

From lack of rebate visibility for branch owners…

  • Lack of complete, up-to-date reporting on products accessible to branch managers
  • Time wasted in collating data from systems that did not integrate with each other
  • Thorough margin only visible a month after the fact, when it was too late to take action

…to empowering branches with accurate information

  • Branches have full visibility of through margin and confidence that their business is profitable
  • Data transparency drives trust among trading partners, building stronger relationships
  • Timely and thorough reporting supports strategic decision-making on a day-to-day basis

From deals full of inconsistencies…

  • Trading agreements with manual free text inputs led to disputes over interpretation
  • Manual trading agreement upload processes resulted in forgotten or lost trading agreements
  • Limited ability to restrict access to deals created a risk of sensitive information being leaked

…to flexible, streamlined trading agreements

  • Flexibility to tailor trading agreement design and reporting to Grafton’s specific needs
  • Commercial teams can track status of trading agreement proposals in the Enable platform
  • Centralized portal for partners to see trading agreements has reduced queries and admin
