Manufacturer customer rebate programs - Enable


Analyse risks and opportunities at the click of a button

Enable’s Watchlist app identifies when your customers are close to hitting higher tiers in their rebate agreements, or close to missing tiers that you had expected them to hit. This provides your sales team with the ability to identify strong sales opportunities that will attract the added benefit of greater rebate.

Having daily visibility of your rebate incentives and their positive impact to your sales numbers across your customer base helps to increase the benefit of rebate deals as well as facilitate the creation of stronger, mutually beneficial relationships.

Performance tracking

While many companies still track performance of deals manually at year end or at best quarterly, Enable 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.

Margin warnings

In situations where a distributor has pricing support from a manufacturer, we enable 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.

Product catalog

Despite the considerable time and effort distributors, wholesalers and merchants spend maintaining your product information in their catalogs, the quality of their data is often poor. Their failure to be comprehensive, accurate or up-to-date with this data creates problems when you’re trying to implement a robust, automated deal management system — among many other things.

Every merchant, wholesaler, distributor and buying group is replicating every suppliers’ product catalogs. 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 helps manufacturers get their product catalogs out to their customers which facilitates smoother handling of customer rebates. We allow each distributor to categorize your products into their own categories and enter their own product codes against each product. Distributors can then view Enable generated reports in their own codes and categories whilst allowing you to view the same data in your codes and categories.

Your sales transactions are then automatically loaded into Enable for each product code on a daily basis, validating against each code and populating Enable.

Allowing both parties involved in customer rebates to speak their own ‘product language’ whilst being clear on what products are and are not included in each agreement can help to reduce disputes and the admin burden, adding a new layer of ease to the process.

The Forecasting Module

Predict your deal performance

Enable has a wide range of forecasting options, from the high-level deal analysis forecast that exists within core functionality to ‘advanced forecasting’ which allows for seasonality and industry knowledge to be better reflected in forecast numbers.

With a more reliable and accurate forecast of what rebate you can expect to pay over the course of a certain period, manufacturers can better apportion payments throughout the length of the deal. This will allow you to accrue for rebate payments immediately when they are incurred, and not only when they are paid. This minimizes end of year adjustments and allows your business to operate with greater financial transparency and precision on a monthly basis.

Collect digital signatures
