Introducing G2’s New Deduction Management Category

May 28, 2024

Accounting and finance software is constantly evolving.

To keep up with the change, advancements have been made to improve efficiency and reduce manual efforts involving managing funds and cash flow.

With that in mind, we have expanded our Accounting & Finance parent category to include a new category for Deduction Management Software.

Our ongoing market analysis ensures our taxonomy stays aligned with current trends, and the addition of the Deduction Management category aligns with our goal to provide an array of solutions for buyers to explore for their financial needs.

The software identifies deductions or payment discrepancies and analyzes them alongside your invoices, sales orders, and other relevant trade documentation. By doing so, it can catch deductions that lay within your pricing disruptions, promotional payments, or damaged goods.

Unlocking the power of deduction management

Typically, accounts receivable (AR) teams manually handle deductions and seek to offer customers the appropriate resolutions. However, that process can be long when dealing with multiple sources of income, which is overwhelming for some companies. 

The right solution can provide insights into trends, shorter wait times, and highlight the financial impact of every dispute. They can offer actionable insights to discover patterns and bottlenecks in the revenue recovery processes.


Deduction management software centralizes all documentation related to deductions, including customer messaging, invoices, proofs of delivery, and dispute claims. By centralizing deduction information, the software allows for more efficient data retrieval and the ability to prioritize claims with custom alerts and reporting.

The software even offers precise insights into deduction statuses, empowering stakeholders to monitor deductions as they progress through their lifecycle. This level of transparency fosters improved communication, decision making, and faster resolutions.

How deduction management software fits into your accounting ecosystem

Deduction management software complements your accounting ecosystem by specifically managing and resolving deductions. Allowing a system to handle discrepancies in accounts receivable autonomously will enable teams to streamline their workflows better.

Many deduction management software offers seamless integration with ERP systems. Additionally, it can support integrations with other financial management solutions in your ecosystem. This facilitates effortless analysis of manually processed fields such as credit notes, open deductions, or negative line items. 

Such features empower users with the tools and information needed to better navigate the next deduction.

How to choose the right deduction management software

Many deduction management vendors offer solutions alongside other financial management tools, empowering businesses with a holistic approach to managing disputes and deductions. 

Before making the choice, consider the current challenges of managing deductions. What features would assist you in resolving those issues? What integrations would support your existing ecosystem? It is also vital to consider the company's future growth and the impact of automating your deduction process.

The process of considering the adoption of new software can be quite challenging. Still, with thorough testing and identification of its potential impact, deduction management software offers great potential.
