Customer rebate management for plumbing and HVAC suppliers

Growth in the plumbing and HVAC industry means expanding your distribution channels, becoming a supplier of choice, and mastering the art of competitive pricing.

Attractive customer rebate programs can help with all three goals. Managed properly, customer rebates encourage positive buying and sales behaviors on the part of your customers. But in practice they’re very hard to manage – especially if you’re trying to do it all on spreadsheets.
