Customer rebate management for plumbing and HVAC suppliers

Growth in the plumbing and HVAC industry means expanding your distribution channels, becoming a supplier of choice and mastering the art of competitive pricing.

Attractive customer rebate programs can help your business achieve all three goals. Managed properly, customer rebates encourage positive buying behaviors from your customers, but in practice, they’re very hard to manage – especially if you’re using spreadsheets.

Enable’s collaborative platform lets you turn customer rebates into a strategic engine of growth for you and your customers. With full visibility of all your customer rebate agreements, plus automated accruals and real-time reporting, you can work strategically with your customers to build their business and yours.
