About Our Rebate Management Systems

Whether you call them Special Pricing Agreements (SPAs), “Ship & Debit” Agreements, or just Customer Contracts, what supposed to simplify life for both the manufacturer and the participating distributor has become a major source of friction in their relationship. Starting with the distributor’s special pricing request and all the way until a rebate credit is issued, the process is overly complex, error prone, resource draining and aggravating for all involved.

Our Rebate Management System was developed to get both manufacturers and distributors a program that is easy to use, fair and transparent. The result is a program that is embraced by distributors and gets everyone on the same page. Reporting for both you and your distributors includes details on contract terms (customer, product and discounts) and the rebate calculations against the distributor claim data, so that everyone knows how the rebate is derived.

We offer an optional “contract review” panel for your pricing managers so that they have details on profit margins and conflicting contracts so that they can make better decisions before approving special pricing.

All of our systems are “turn key” and “distributor friendly” so that both you and your distributors benefit.

How Our Rebate Management System Works

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.

Our program will give you and your distributors confidence that each rebate is calculated correctly.
