Cervello’s Rebates Optimizer Model enables companies to make the most of the discounts offered by its suppliers. By connecting rebates from all vendors, supply plan forecasts, and financial projections in a single place, companies can ensure that they capture all of the value available to them via rebates and that they streamline communications with suppliers. This enables them to know when to expect payment, to stay on top of repayment terms, and to provide a better position for negotiating rebate terms.

A single solution to maximize value from rebate offerings

Large companies regularly find themselves receiving rebate offerings from their suppliers. Although these rebates represent a great financial opportunity, they are often hard to manage. Multiple suppliers result in a scramble of emails, spreadsheets, and an overall lack of clarity in the current rebate situation. Moreover, a decentralized approach does not empower the company to manage and take full advantage of the values offered.

The Rebates Optimizer Model offers a space for suppliers to update their rebate offerings without the need to exchange emails. Any change made by suppliers is immediately reflected in the rebates forecast, saving time in evaluating the best course of action.
