Why Enable for managing distributor rebate programs?

Gain full visibility into your distributor rebate programs

Enable stores all your deals in one place, so you can view your rebate and incentive programs at any level of granularity – by customer, product line, SKU, deal type, branch and more.

Easily calculate and pay rebates

Modeling complex deals in standard ERP systems presents unique challenges and fine details are often lost or overlooked. With Enable, you can model even the most complex deal terms, ensuring you always pay out the right amount.

Accrue and forecast rebates accurately

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.

Avoid friction over rebate claims

When distributor rebate program 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.

Go to market stronger together

Managing your distributor rebate programs through Enable gives you the data, insights and collaboration tools to craft win-win deals together with your customers, so you all go to market stronger.
