General Plumbing Supply onboards Enable to manage and track supplier rebates more efficiently

Posted by Elizabeth Allcock on January 29, 2021 08:15:00

We are pleased to share that General Plumbing Supply, one of the largest distributors on the East Coast and the leading resource to contractors for top-of-the-line plumbing, heating, HVAC, and industrial supplies have onboarded Enable, the leading rebate management platform to better manage and track their supplier rebates.

General Plumbing Supply prior to onboarding Enable found their biggest pain point was keeping track of all of the rebate agreements they had with all of their vendors. They easily had 50+ programs with many vendors and some of those agreements had several different types of accruals built into the agreement. Their rebate management process before Enable was very tedious, trying to keep track of all of the different rebate mechanisms and relying on the vendors to report back in a timely and accurate manner.

Matt Meola, Director of Purchasing, General Plumbing Supply, said: “Since implementing Enable, it’s been much simpler to review current rebate agreements versus having to rely on the vendor to provide this information is a major upgrade. Beyond that, the forecasting functionality and the Watch List app are a complete game changer. We are now able to make more educated purchasing decisions in real time, as it relates to achieving additional rebate dollars is something we would not have been able to do prior to utilizing the Enable platform.”

Matt Haynes, Customer Success Manager, Enable, said: “We were aware that General Plumbing Supply had limited resource and that we would need to provide additional assistance to get all their programs into the system as swiftly as possible, in turn significantly reducing their time to value. The team have been fantastic to work with and as a result of strong collaboration across both teams we are making great strides towards a highly successful implementation.”
