At a Glance
Distribution-franchised partners have a contractual right to audit historic transactions for accuracy, but do so infrequently. Why? Limited accounting systems, volume of transaction and resources! Companies often spend too much time researching and fixing pricing discrepancies due to systems that fail to track rebate programs. Taking employees away from their normal business activities to investigate claims and responding to bill-back requests results in lost time and efficiencies for a company.
