Increase control on trade spending through integrated setup, accrual, tracking and payment of various types of marketing plans.
Promotions and Rebates
Customer Rebates allow a user to predefine a variety of rebate or off-invoice allowance programs. Program can accrue amounts to be “paid” to a defined entity at a later time based on sales transactions or reduce/increase amounts on orders/invoices.
Plans for non-sales transaction based activities can also be defined, accrued for, tracked and paid. These plans are frequently calendar based and include activities such as slotting fees, co-op advertising, etc.
Plan “payments” can take many forms, including Credit Memos to customers, a check to a customer or other entity, such as a distributor, a customer’s customer or other third party. Frequently customers will deduct rebates or other amounts earned for other types of programs. ColumbusFood’s Promo/Rebate system is integrated with our Deduction Management system to allow efficient settlement of deductions associated with Promo/Rebate plans.
