The Problem

Pearl Design Group has a unique job profitability requirement. Sales commissions are calculated based on job profit when the income and expense transactions are paid. And they need to tie the payroll expenses given for the person when calculating final commissions.

Prior to QCommission, they were doing everything manually by exporting invoice data and cost data via job profitability reports for specific time periods, exporting payroll reports, combining and sorting all data, and formulating gross profit against actual pay. A separate spreadsheet is kept and updated as each time period is completed, allowing an account format to determine commission +- value.  For Pearl Design Group; The mechanics of this prosess have  been a burden and time consuming issue for many years. Always trying to be more efficient  they have tried many independent software programs with very minimal success.

Bob Carlson, General Manager at Pearl Design Group constantly researched for a solution when he found QCommission. Making an inquiry. He had a good feeling that the QCommission program was different, and immediately he chose QCommission for their business in August of 2013.

The Project

The QCommission Implementation Technicians (the team) kicked off the project by conducting an in-depth discovery meeting. The primary objective of connecting to QuickBooks to bring in fully paid invoices, bills, credit memos, customers, customer jobs, and other related data were easily done using the standard integration function present in QCommission. The team then configured necessary sales compensation plans to automate all aspects of the sales commission process.

To calculate the job profit, QCommission options were set to pick up costs as well from QuickBooks by matching the customer job number. In addition the team also handled the payroll expense transaction associated with payees. The team configured plans and validated the output for a pay period to ensure that QCommission was calculating commissions accurately. An additional requirement was for the software to configure the commission statement template to show the current period commissions and accrued commission totals.

The Implementation team then trained Bob to use the software effectively.  Bob was able to use the solution with little support after the go-live.  QCommission has been used by Pearl Design Group since December of 2013. They have been a client for more than 2 years now. 

Bob Carlson, Pearl Design Group’s General Manager, noted QCommission as “A huge leap forward”. He further added, “Our Company uses a highre breed version of Quick Books. And though the makers of QuickBooks (Intuit) have created a formidable all around business software, they have not been able to create a commission add-on to their package. This has been an issue for many years, and we have tried many independent software programs with very minimal success. A few years back our accountant mentioned a program called QCommission by CellarStone. I did a little research, made an inquiry, and I had a good feeling that this program was different, and I immediately felt a very professional relation with their support team. QCommission was the answer to our problems, and it continues to be a seamless and outstanding third party software to Quick Books. The very best part is when I have a question, request, or need the support team is always ready to assist, and always fulfill my needs! I completely trust this company and their products, and I highly recommend them.”
