Program Overview

Rebate management for a big builder can be an administrative nightmare. The diverse set of supply categories used in home building rarely fits nicely into an accounting system. Each category can have a very different deal structure associated with it making it impossible to reflect supplier agreements properly. Some deals are based on starts, others closings. Some deals are per home and others on square footage, number of floors, cubic yards, or linear feet.

Our systems can handle it all.

The opportunity is to easily and simply aggregate volume and suppliers across the organization, provide the information useful for deal negotiation, and provide the information to the various divisions and regions on the deal opportunities and ways to maximize profit. It is important to calculate rebates, manage accruals, and bill and collect monies from suppliers leaving zero dollars on the table in a low cost way.

It is also important to be able to distribute deal benefits to the group that generated the savings with complete visibility and transparency in order to incent and reward the desired participation from the field.

Builder Sourcing’s people and systems do all of this for you.

We are provided the raw data and then take it from there. No filling out forms. No entering of data. No chasing of suppliers. No loss of time or revenue. Just lower administrative cost and more profit!

The Problem – Rebate Management Is Not Easy

One of the ways to improve profit margins is with efficiently and easily taking advantage of the rebate programs made available to builders. However, many builders face a variety of challenges when trying to manage their programs in the multi-divisional, non-centralized purchasing approach. Separate systems, different accounting codes, multiple documents and spreadsheets can lead to frustration and profit loss.

If you are operating in this environment to manage your rebate programs this way, it not only costs time but you likely are leaving money on the table without complete visibility as to what you are owed or what you could have earned. And that is not good.

The Issues:

  • The potential for rebate programs are not always known by category or based on volume of the entire organization
  • Most financial accounting systems fail to manage costs correctly when the discount calculation is after the fact
  • The issue is compounded by complexity in the various trade agreements and calculations
  • Keeping track of all of the details is made even more complex when purchasing is decentralized

Typical Solutions:

  • Use of spreadsheets to manage all details vs. an automated system – this process can be error prone & time consuming
  • Some rely on suppliers to work it out for them and expect them to get it right
  • Some use their accounting systems but these systems typically cannot handle the complexity

The result?

  • Loss Of Profit
  • Inaccurate Billings
  • Lack Of Controls
  • Slow Cash Flow

Frequently Asked Questions

Builder Sourcing’s Rebate Management Program for big builders is designed to maximize the money received from the builder programs available in the market. We start with the programs that you have already in place. We work with you to help you decide if those are the best ones for the future or if you would like to pursue any others. These choices are always yours.

Our goal is to maximize the value possible from each category where rebate and incentive programs are available that represent good choices for you.

Here are some of the questions we typically hear and their answers to help you better understand our program and how it works.

That is not a problem as we do not change how you typically buy materials for the home. Essentially, the manufacturers will pay you, the builder, a rebate on the materials purchased by your sub-contractors provided you specify their products to be used. For example, typically, your painter buys the paint for your projects. They still will. If you ask or direct them to use a particular paint supplier, the supplier will track the paint purchased by your painter for the paint used on your homes and pay you a rebate for the products purchased on your behalf.

Tell them that they are correct if you are buying direct from the manufacturer and when you are guaranteeing that manufacturer a particular volume level.

However, you can tell them that rebate programs do work, especially in those cases where the materials get to the job site from a subcontractor or distributor and not direct from the manufacturer themselves or when volume discounts are involved. In most categories in home building, builders and their sub-contractors are buying materials through distribution. Therefore, there is no other way for a manufacturer to pass on a discount or an incentive to an individual customer of that distributor. The only way for them to pass on this reward is in the form of a rebate.

This is a very common structure for a big builder. From a rebate management stand point, we would take our cue from you. You would decide if rebate programs are to be managed nationally, regionally or locally. And the answer may differ by product category. All of that is fine.

Important also is to determine the points of contact you wish us to have. We can work at whichever levels you desire as our tracking and reporting systems go down to the lowest level of detail which would be a division. As a result, we can communicate with the purchasing organizations at the divisional, regional or national levels. The choice is yours.
