The entire SPA & Rebate process for both Manufacturers and their Distributors can be a major source of friction in their relationship. Starting with the distributor’s SPA (Special Pricing Request) and all the way until a rebate credit is issued, the process is overly complex, error prone and resource draining.
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.
