Exchange Deals

Get on the same page as your strategic trading partners

Product catalog

Don’t let poor data quality hold you back from implementing a robust, automated deal management system.

Enable links distributors, wholesalers, and merchants to suppliers’ product data through Enable. Exchange, allowing you to access accurate, up-to-date product information, categorize supplier products into your own categories, and assign your own product codes.

You can then report on your own categories while your suppliers report on the same dataset using their categories, so everyone’s on the same page.

Jointly execute deals for mutual reward

Collaborative trading agreements

Wave goodbye to spreadsheets and the ambiguity, errors, delays, and disputes they cause when accounting for rebates. Say hello to a universal language for trading agreements between manufacturers and distributors, helping both business partners drive mutually profitable growth in the new collaborative economy.

With Enable, your suppliers bring in their product catalog and supplier products are pushed into your rebate management system, so you can map each supplier product to your code and categories, and run cross-supplier reports.
