Customer rebate management for manufacturers
Rebates should be a tool to encourage positive buying behaviors on the part of your customers, but in practice, they can be very hard to manage. Enable’s collaborative platform lets you turn customer rebates into a strategic engine for growth – for you and your supply chain customers.
Why Enable for manufacturers?
Gain full visibility into your 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 can be challenging, resulting in fine details getting lost. With Enable, you can model even the most complex deal terms, ensuring you always pay out the right amount.
Go to market stronger together
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.
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.
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.
