Powerful supplier rebate management for plumbing and HVAC dealers

For dealers and distributors of plumbing and HVAC supplies, even a one-percentage point increase in rebates earned can have a big impact on the bottom line. Yet trading agreements are often lost, forgotten or scattered across the business, so valuable rebates go unclaimed.

Enable lets you manage and track your rebates centrally – so you maximize your rebate income and never miss an opportunity to claim. What’s more, you’ll also build better relationships with your suppliers and enable closer collaboration between finance and buying teams.

Get full visibility of rebate. Improve cash flow.

Automated accruals  

Accurately track rebates due,  including any supplier-guaranteed margins, with a thorough audit trail to quickly resolve any disputes.

Cash collection support

Ensure all of your rebates are claimed and cash is received promptly. Look back retroactively and claim any missed earnings.

Comprehensive reporting

Get full, real-time visibility of deals, thresholds, and through margin to help you maximize your rebate earnings.

Why Enable for plumbing and HVAC distributors?

Claim all of your rebates owed

With organizations using an ad-hoc approach to rebate management, 4% of rebate typically goes unclaimed by plumbing and HVAC distributors. Enable guarantees you track and invoice for all rebate owed, improving profitability.

Maximize rebate earnings

When you have complex deals with multiple tiers and conditions, it can be hard to know what to buy (and when) to earn the most rebate. Enable gives you full insight into your trade deals to help you make the right decisions.

Foster better collaboration

Enable’s collaboration features let you work with plumbing and HVAC manufacturers and industry buying groups to maximize your business together and create a truly collaborative working environment.
