Resolve Short Pays & Deductions using the Account Review TPM Software

Resolving short pays and deductions is a challenge for most CPG manufacturers.   Account Review helps automate and simplify the process with our closed-loop approach.  Contained and managed within Account Review are all of the data elements necessary to research, document, manage and resolve deductions.



 

Timely Deduction Resolution

Configurable email alerts and automated work flow keep you in the loop and ahead of deduction issues
Each day deductions are automatically exported from your ERP and imported into Account Review for resolution
Allow Account Review to automatically assign open deductions to the appropriate people, and/or manually reassign deductions for research and resolution as appropriate
Timely access for all stake holders, both in the field sales and in corporate headquarters
During resolution, all elements from promotion plans are linked automatically to the settlement request, reducing data entry effort and errors
Lump-sum Wizard, column and row-copy and other features help reduce data-entry effort and errors.
Resolve deductions to planned events for indirect accounts where appropriate
Automated, totally configurable deduction letters significantly reduces data entry, improves accuracy and facilitates work flow
 

All of the Features You Expect & More

Includes all of the features you need for deduction resolution; including Editing, Notes, Change Log, Assignment, Mass-Write-Off, Dispute, Advance Settlement Matching, Repay-Offset, and many more
Advanced power-user features built into every grid, including group-by, pivot, and filter-bar
Export reports directly into Microsoft Excel or create PDFs for additional flexibility

 

Better deduction documentation

HTML Link of electronic documents to speed access and reduce paper usage
Easy access to complete and accurate spending data to research post-audit claims
All work flow tasks, changes and activities are logged by user ID, date and time stamp
Closed-loop TPM approach provides linkage to all aspects of trade promotion activity, including planned events, shipments, syndicated data, payment requests, and budgets
Improved customer P&Ls — deductions are expensed to the correct plan-to account, event and products

 

Don't double-pay

Prevent “double-dipping” since resolved deductions are also linked with payments in a closed-loop TPM system.  For example, duplicate reference numbers are automatically flagged for review
Visibility to the year-to-date spending history of each event along with projected liability can prevent double pays
Electronic work flow closes events after final settlement, preventing non-valid settlement requests from being expensed to the wrong event
