Did you know?

  • Deductions are brands’ second-largest expense after COGs
  • On average, the cost of deductions equates to 10-15% of brand revenue
  • 15-25% of deductions are either invalid or preventable
  • Deductions can come from 30-100 retailers — all in different formats

Do the math — how much money are you leaving on the table?

Managing deductions is challenging. It requires tedious research and accounting and puts hard-earned retailer relationships at risk. Manually processing deductions can consume 50-80% of AR analysts’ time — leaving no time for analysis, prevention, or recovery.

And according to our 2022 Deductions Management Trends Report, coordinating with multiple stakeholders is one of the most common pain points for AR Leaders. It’s messy and inefficient — but it doesn’t have to be.
