Enable's Executive Summary makes the process of reviewing and signing off programs simple. It contains information about the expected earnings and conveys at a glance how this year's program compares to last year’s. It will also offer expected earnings by program line, total non-rebatable transactions and other useful information in the approval process.
After reviewing this article, please get in touch with your implementation team if this looks like functionality that would be helpful for you and your business.
This page gives you a high level summary of the Trading program including details of program run dates, program lead, expected transactions compared to last years program, expected rebate earnings and effective rate versus last years trading program and current program line performance.
This information will help you gauge the potential performance of program lines and will provide insight into how 'stretch goals' would impact growth by showing you the next rebate band and the potential gain if you reach it.
The terms item changes area will give a side-by-side comparison of terms item changes between the reference period and the new period. The chosen terms that appear in this section will need to be configured by a client admin, please raise a helpdesk ticket if you would like any of these terms appearing in these sections amended.
This information can prove to be pivotal when deciding whether or not a program will prove to be more lucrative than the prior year, and whether it will take some tweaking before you decide to send it through the sign-off process. This detailed breakdown provided in the Executive Summary, combined with the Progress Tracker can help you to be sure that your earnings are maximised.
