Customer rebate management for manufacturers
Rebate should be a tool to encourage positive buying and sales behaviors on the part of your distributors, but in practice it’s very hard to manage. Enable’s collaborative platform lets you turn customer rebates into a strategic engine of growth – for you and your trading partners.
Why Enable for manufacturers?
Gain full visibility of your rebate programs
Enable stores all your deals in one place, so you can view your rebate and incentive programs at any level of granularity – by customer, by product line, by SKU, by deal type, by branch, and more.
Calculate and pay rebate accurately
It’s hard to model complex deals in standard ERP systems, so fine details often get lost. With Enable you can model even the most complex deal terms, ensuring you always pay out the right amount.
Go to market stronger together
Enable gives you the data, insights and collaboration tools to craft win-win deals together with your customers, so you all go to market stronger.
Avoid friction over rebate claims
When rebate terms aren’t clear to all parties, you can wind up in disputes over how much is owed. With Enable you work with your customers to review, discuss and approve deals, removing friction.
Accrue and forecast rebate accurately
Poor insight into rebate owed can lead to inaccurate financial reporting, forecasting and disclosure. With Enable you can accrue and forecast rebate payments accurately and in real time.
