Streamline and Simplify your Rebate
Management Processes

By: | Category: ERP

More and more, distribution companies are having to manage contracts between the manufacturers they represent (suppliers) and the customers they sell those products to. In some industries this is referred to as rebate management, others call it customer pricing support (CUPS).

Most organizations manage these contracts manually – using spreadsheets – which is a complicated, slow and mistake-prone process that often leaves your money on the table.

Sage X3 Tips


Sage X3 ERP includes native rebate functionality which allows users to create a pricing rebate to the customer, or to the supplier, but the native functionality does not manage contract eligibility, or overlapping contracts between suppliers and customers, or pick the most lucrative contract.


Built for Sage X3, Net at Work’s Rebate Management solution provides the ability to set up rebate agreements and calculate and report rebates on sales transactions. In addition, it enables you to generate claims that book the financial impact, giving you control and a holistic view of the process.
