Often, the volume of billback income can be as great as the grocery store’s net profit. Realize the income potential of Billbacks by assuring that all deal monies that are available are accurately billed. The process eliminates human error, assuming the deals are entered correctly, and drastically reduces overhead by eliminating the labor-intensive manual tracking, calculation and invoicing.
Record transactions directly into the billback module when the buyer makes the deal. The system applies periodic wholesaler, POS and/or DSD product movement data to the applicable deals. It matches the product movement with the deal line items, calculates and produces an invoice to send to the supplier. The collection process is monitored through the Accounts Receivable function within the fully automated and integrated FMS Financial Suite of Applications.
