Powerful supplier rebate management software for grocery wholesalers
Grocery wholesalers can generate significant income with supplier rebates. Yet the trade agreements that create these behaviors are often lost, fragmented across the business or hard to replicate in ERP systems. This means progress is difficult to track, forcing you to leave valuable rebates unclaimed.
Enable allows grocery wholesalers to manage, track and maximize the value of supplier rebates centrally, resulting in stronger supplier relationships and a healthier bottom line.
Why Enable for grocery wholesalers?
Claim all rebates owed
Most ERP systems lack the granularity to track rebate earnings in detail, so 4% of potential margin from rebates typically goes unclaimed by grocery wholesalers. Enable ensures you invoice for all rebate owed, improving profitability.
Track rebates across many locations
Whether you have five outlets or 5,000, Enable gives you a centralized platform to track every purchase and in-store promotion against your rebate deals and market development funds, so you don’t miss out on a cent.
Make smart buying decisions
When you have complex deals with multiple tiers and conditions, knowing what to buy (and when) to earn the most in rebates can be difficult. Enable gives you full insight into your incentive programs to help you make the right decisions.
Improve supplier relationships
Enable’s collaboration features let you work strategically with your suppliers to grow your businesses together, while still offering competitive pricing for your customers – creating a win-win approach for everyone.
Boost bottom-line profitability
Every extra dollar of earned rebates adds to the bottom line. With Enable, you get full visibility into how and when you can earn more rebates from suppliers, with insights that allow you to maximize rebates returned to the business.
