Volume Incentive Rebate (VIR) programs and other rebate programs are designed to provide higher levels of rebates as resellers achieve higher sales goals. However, to maximize results, resellers need visibility into current sales levels and access to information regarding what is required to reach their rebate level.
Computer Market Research (CMR) eliminates the challenges associated with monitoring and recording volume incentive rebate information. Our expertise in automating reporting processes eliminates the challenges many manufacturers have associated with rebate management and program oversight. We understand that supervision of VIR programs is not a core proficiency of most rebate sponsors and we work with manufacturers and their channel partners to create a trouble-free and transparent branded experience.

Automate the Process
The automatic rebate management process significantly cut rebate approval time, which leads to higher partner satisfaction and continued program participation.
The automated calculation, verification, and payout of claims reduce overhead costs associated with time-consuming manual-based processes (e.g., Excel spreadsheets, ad-hoc collection).
Analyze Your Programs
See if your rebate programs have a positive impact on sales records by keeping track of quantity sold and how much you owe each Sales Rep.
Foster Partner Loyalty by Instilling Partner Confidence
Partners will no longer have to jump through hoops to receive rebate information plus, shortened payment cycles relieve partners of frustration.
Channel partners can track their volume incentive reward payment status.
“Before we started using Computer Market Research (CMR) to compile our channel sales information, our sales team didn’t have accurate sell-through numbers to do accurate forecasting. Now we have actionable, reliable sales information on which to base sales projections and commissions. I can brief upper management about trends and channel movement with the confidence that we have clean, accurate data.”
