Margin warnings

In situations where a distributor has pricing support from a manufacturer, this facility allows the distributor to check the absolute margin of sales orders as they are placed (taking manufacturer support into account), and so highlighting incorrect selling prices and ensuring that all margin support deals are registered in the system ready for invoicing.

Year on year reporting

Review spend and rebate performance for the current year vs. previous year, vs. forecast for the full year as well as reviewing actuals so far.

Performance tracking

While many companies still track performance of deals manually at year end or at best quarterly, DealTrack offers a daily dashboard of deal performance which ensures you always have your finger on the pulse of your business. This next level of tracking enhances the performance of purchasing and sales teams by enabling them to make trading decisions far more frequently and proactively using dashboards for a range of job roles and seniority levels.

Compare deal performance side by side. Look at actuals to date and where you are heading.

Product catalog

Despite the considerable time and effort distributors, wholesalers and merchants spend maintaining product catalogs, the quality of their data is often poor. Failing to be comprehensive, accurate or up-to-date, this shortfall in quality data holds them back when trying to implement a robust, automated deal management system — among many other things.

Every merchant, wholesaler, distributor and buying group is replicating the product catalog of every supplier. With 1000 suppliers offering 1 million products to 1000 merchants in UK and USA, there are 1 billion product records that merchants are attempting to maintain.

Enable has manufacturers and their products making up well over 50% of market share in DealTrack and we help manufacturers get their product catalogs to their customers. DealTrack is provided to manufacturers and distributors, linked together via Enable.Exchange.

We allow merchants to categorize supplier products into their own categories, and enter their own product codes against each product, if they wish. Merchants can then report by their own categories while suppliers report on the same data set using their own cat. Suppliers sales data is automatically loaded into DealTrack for each product code that is sold to each merchant on a daily basis, which then validates against product codes, and populates the customer's DealTrack.

Live trading agreements

At Enable we create a universal language for trading agreements between manufacturers and merchants. Today, trading agreements are typically produced on Excel spreadsheets and pieces of paper. There is significant ambiguity as to what each trading agreement means, especially which products are included in each aspect of the agreement. This leads to much administration, disputes and arguments and is a major distraction from the goal of driving mutually profitable growth in the new collaborative economy.

Tracking performance against trading agreements is time delayed, with trading partners sometimes not reviewing actuals until the end of the year. And reconciliation of the merchant's view of performance vs the supplier's view of performance is even less frequent.

In creating a new universal language for trading agreements between merchants and suppliers, each party has an instance of DealTrack, the supplier brings in their product catalog and supplier products are pushed into the merchant's DealTrack instance. The merchant can then map each supplier product to their own code and categories so they can run cross-supplier reports.
