Drive Profitability with Automated Partner and Incentive Program Management

Staying abreast of technology supplier incentives and promotions is a daunting task for partner senior management and procurement. You need to stay current on up-front discounts and back-end rebate programs as well as programs based on employee levels of certification and specialization. For most resellers these programs have a significant impact on margin and profitability. Partners use time-consuming manual processes to piece together ever-changing qualification and compliance criteria from complicated data sources and vendor systems. Noncompliance can impact your profitability significantly. For large companies, the impact can be in the millions of dollars.

ChannelXpert Features

With ChannelXpert, you can quickly understand, optimize, analyze, and track rewards, including areas you may not have managed at all because you lacked data or time. ChannelXpert automatically analyzes data from multiple sources and alerts you to potential situations that either invalidate or increase the rebate. You can then have the ability to dispute relevant transactions with the vendor to ensure you get paid for all earned transactions. ChannelXpert makes the results and insights easy to obtain, leading to increased margins and profitability.

ChannelXpert and DesignXpert

Netformx DesignXpert®, the global leader in enterprise technology design and proposal generation, integrates ChannelXpert so that insights into vendor promotions and incentives can be provided during the initial solution design phase. By automatically presenting—as designs are being created—alternate SKUs that are eligible for rebate, companies can readily take advantage of partner promotions and incentives while eliminating design rework.
