SETTLEMENT

Automatic settlement of retrospective income with the suppliers. Multi-currency capability. Integrated creation and posting of invoices. Automatic calculation of current and projected rebate earnings. Settlement of claims throughout the year.

Increased liquidity and improved cash flow

Aside from negotiating the rebate terms, claim settlement/management, including the ongoing monitoring of agreed targets with regard to total earnings or earnings increases is a further part of a successful rebate program.

A crucial factor of success is ensuring a company earns the maximum amount from every rebate. By inputting all of the agreed terms of the rebate negotiation into the system, no rebate is forgotten about.

BONSAI greatly reduces the workload for the settlement process by atomizing the whole process. This leaves more time for the essentials: The control and optimization of the rebate system.

BONSAI continuously calculates the current value of all rebates as well as a trend based forecast for the end of the year. This makes it possible, without further effort, to check which rebates are within the desired target range and to see where there is more earnings potential.

Once the highest rebate scale is exceeded for a certain rebate, there is the potential for prompt renegotiation of the rebate scales with suppliers.

Sales promotional costs, purchasing group member costs and any additional sale costs are added into BONSAI. These can be discussed at the yearly negotiations. By using the simulation tool that BONSAI offers, companies can plan purchasing volumes to work out how to maximise their potential rebate earnings for the next year.

This allows companies to plan their purchasing in advance and to gain insight on the effects that influence rebate earnings. Priorities can then be set for the next term’s negotiations.
