Incentives and Rebates
Avoid overspending, overpaying, supporting programs that fail, and focusing on the wrong partner. With e2open Incentives and Rebates, you can quickly create and run profitable incentive and rebate programs at scale—regardless of their complexity. Effective goals, accurate calculations, and timely payments stimulate performance. Meaningful analytics help engage partners and strengthen relationships.
Earnings inaccuracies, incorrect payments, disputes, and unmotivated partners
Channel partner incentive programs and rebates are often considered a necessary cost of doing business. Excessive manual effort, complicated rules, inaccurate earnings statements, wrong or late payments, disputes, challenging audits, employee frustration, and a lack of partner commitment are common problems in this complex world. As a result, a high percentage of incentive program expenditures goes toward increased processing costs, overpayments to partners, and overspending on ineffective rewards that fail to motivate partners.
From overhead expense to results driver
Make incentive and rebate programs work in your favor. Turn an overhead expense into a profitable motivator for preferred partner behaviors by automating performance-based incentives, running more impactful programs, and spending less.
Course-correcting or weeding out ineffective programs helps you reduce overspending. You can adapt highly complex program rules on-the-fly in real time across all incentive types to keep incentives relevant.
Paying faster and giving partners visibility into earnings opportunities and incentive accruals motivates the channel and provides convincing evidence of the benefits of your programs.
By eliminating miscalculations, identifying erroneous claims, and accurately pinpointing each incentive recipient, you gain peace of mind and make overpayments a thing of the past.
Reduce operational costs
Automated calculations, program eligibility checks and validations, and approval routing replace manual processes and help your finance and operations teams work faster, be more accurate and more productive.
Run the programs you want
Support for all known rebate types and the facility to group multiple simple programs into more complex scenarios with several goals helps businesses run the incentives they want, uninhibited by application logic limitations.
Seize market opportunities
Rapid program creation capabilities and real-time updates help you quickly take advantage of opportunistic conditions or react to unfavorable circumstances to maximize outcomes when the unexpected occurs.
Reduction in payment turnaround time
In contra-revenue savings
Increase in ROI from marketing campaigns backed with a rebate
