Rebate Management System

Rebates are powerful financial incentives manufacturers and retailers use to reward customers and sales channel partners for making specific kinds of purchases.

Depending on your brand’s goals, you might use a rebate to encourage people to buy more of a product, a wider range of products or choose your product over a competitor’s option.

In the past, rebates relied on a mail-in submission system. Customers would buy a product, fill out an information card by hand, send it in with proof of purchase and wait for their reward. Although many companies still use mail-in rebates, digital submission methods are growing in popularity.

As more customers and channel sales partners want to submit rebates online, companies need rebate management systems and other online rebate management solutions. Learn more about online sales incentive programs and see how Incentive Insights could take your campaigns to the next level.

Benefits of Online Rebate Systems

There are many different types of online rebate programs. Depending on your sales goals, you might offer rebates for consumers or channel sales partners who need an extra push to buy your products. Rebates can benefit your company’s bottom line by boosting sales, building customer loyalty, increasing brand recognition, creating momentum for new products and more.

With a digital rebate program, all campaign participants need to do to claim their reward is purchase your product and submit some information through an easy-to-use online portal. Although mail-in and online rebates both have the potential to make your company more successful, online rebate systems come with several advantages:

Faster processing

Mail-in rebates can take weeks to process and fulfill, leading to frustrated and confused participants. When you enable online rebate submission, customers can fill out their information quickly and send it to you almost instantly, allowing you to respond faster and give your customers a more positive impression of your brand.

Higher participation

Because digital rebate programs are easy to submit, they may garner higher participation rates than mail-in rebate programs. Younger populations may also gravitate toward digital rebates.

Simplified data collection

Online rebates help simplify data collection by lowering the risk of misreading, eliminating the possibility of submissions getting lost in the mail and making data easily accessible for RMS reporting.

Streamlined communication

With an online rebate system, you can send updates to participants automatically throughout processing and fulfillment to build stronger customer relationships and brand loyalty.

If you’ve worked on a rebate campaign before, you know physical submissions can take up limited resources and yield data that’s difficult to interpret. Why not make your job easier by adding an online submission method for your next campaign? At Incentive Insights, we’ve seen the positive impact an effective online rebate system can have.
