Computer Market Research Ltd. Announces the Availability of its Newest Cloud-Based Module, Automated Distributor Claims Management (ADCM)
San Diego, CA – October 3, 2016 – Computer Market Research Ltd. (CMR), a global leading provider of channel data management software and services, today announced the availability of its newest cloud-based module, Automated Distributor Claims Management (ADCM), or Ship and Debit, which is set to be released on October 24, 2016.
Inspired by the millions of dollars lost due to the mismanagement, and thus overpayment, of backend rebate price adjustments on partner-submitted claims—ADCM is engineered to help manufacturers acquire quantifiable and aggregated data into each channel POS transaction, identify erroneously submitted claims and eliminate overpayments.
“Proper evaluation into backend rebates is a complex, frustrating and time-consuming process,” remarked Del Heles, CEO, and president of CMR. “We developed ADCM as an instrument that empowers manufacturers with an enriched understanding of their channel without the need on relying on [internal auditing] manual claim processing or partners’ accuracy in reporting.
Business benefits and capabilities include:
- Allows you to build comprehensive program parameters for each transaction.
- Automatically alerts you of improperly reported claims.
- [Real-time] detailed audit trail into each discounted transaction.
- Can seamlessly add multiple sales and marketing programs into individual POS transaction.
- Provides clarity into best-performing partners, market opportunities, and programs.
- Improves channel sales forecasting accuracy for enhanced business decision making on channel inventory.
- Integrates with Salesforce, NetSuite, SAP, Oracle and other ERP software.
What is a Ship and Debit agreement?
A “Ship and Debit” agreement is a process that addresses the guidelines (established by a manufacturer) regarding certain regulations channel distributor(s) must follow to in order to retain “debited” compensation via rebate claims.
A “Ship and Debit” program exists because, in many situations, a channel distributor is required to sell the manufacturer’s product to resellers at a much lower price than its original cost—a result usually due to changing market conditions such as increased market competition or modification in customer demand.
