Whether you call them Special Pricing Agreements (SPAs), “Ship & Debit” Agreements, or just Customer Contracts, what was supposed to simplify life for you as a distributor, has become a major source of friction and confusion. If you are like most distributors, you have contracts with different customers and different suppliers – all with their own terms and policies. Most distributors spend crucial resources checking and double checking if their rebate claims and payouts are accurate.
Our Rebate Management System for distributors will organize all of your contracts by customer, supplier and SKU and then use your sales data to calculate the rebate amount owed to you based on the terms of each supplier program. We will submit claims to your suppliers on your behalf and in their required workflow. Reporting includes reconciliation statements that you can cross check and even share with your suppliers to be sure you are getting the correct payouts.
All of our systems are designed specifically for distributors – affordable, useful and simple to use.
Distributors can make special pricing requests on a simple request “portal”, identify the customer and applicable SKU or product family and with a point and click, submit a request.
The request will flow to the pricing manager who will have relevant information on the request to make a “data driven” decision on the request.
Approved contracts will be formalized and become the exclusive basis for rebate calculations. Rebates will be automatically calculated for distributors who regularly submit POS data. Other distributors will submit a rebate “claim” in the format of their choice and Interlynx will reconcile the earned rebate based on the company, location, SKU, and contract date.
Reconciliation reporting will be generated and summarized on a regular basis.
