QCommission enables you to quickly calculate commission, verify results and distribute this information to your inside reps, outside reps and other staff. You can present the commission information in such a way that the sales people clearly understand what they are being paid and why they are being paid at a very detailed level. Excel and manual calculations can introduce a lot of errors into your calculations and cause your sales people to lose trust in you. QCommission can help avoid that by calculating all commissions systematically and reliably.
Software firms' sales revenue is typically license fees, maintenance contracts and professional services. Occasionally one-time license fees can be substituted by periodic subscription fees on a contracted basis. Sales staff may include direct sales reps, account executives, sales support engineers and managers. Occasionally, external resellers and referral partners may also be involved.
Typical commission plans for these payees may include:

Normally, it would take the ICS sales commission team about a week to calculate commissions in Excel. ICS used Channel Online to capture order information. Channel Online then pushes the data into QuickBooks to create invoice and purchase order but the products/items did not match between invoices and purchase orders. This was required to figure out the appropriate cost and the gross profit. Calculating gross profit was the most time consuming work because the cost for hardware items were in the purchase order and the cost for service items was a fixed percentage. In addition, the volume of transactions was a nightmare to handle, with different line items being calculated differently.
ICS has to calculate commissions for five payees: their Regional Account Managers, Project Managers and VP of Sales. Commissions are paid on a quarterly basis, when invoices are paid by the customers. In addition they also wanted to handle split commissions between multiple payees. Payee was assigned at the invoice level but they needed to split commissions at an individual invoice line level. Multiple payees needed to be identified at the invoice line level. The CellarStone implementation team helped them figure out a solution to this problem.
Dana Cisneros, office manager at ICS said, "We did some research and finally decided to select QCommission because this is the only software on earth that can calculate on summary line of QuickBooks invoice with splits and Manager Override. No other software could calculate Gross profit from all Purchase orders for the matching paid invoice."
QCommission is powerful and flexible sales commission software. It calculates sales people's compensation accurately and reduces errors related to spreadsheets and manual methods. QCommission allowed the very complex calculations required by ICS to be handled in the system.
"The project was very well executed by the implementation team. Right from the kick off meeting, the implementation team gathered most of the requirements. The software was delivered on time with very good professional training. The implementation team provided excellent service whenever we called them and even guided us in running the first period." says Dana.
QCommission has provided value to ICS by saving the team's valuable time, reducing it from 1 week to a couple of hours - and producing accurate and professional looking commission statements with no errors in commission calculation.
"We will definitely refer QCommission to other prospects and share our benefits and experience especially to those who use Connect-wise and Channel Online. It is no exaggeration that the software has reduced our one week of manual calculation down to a couple of hours, it's a wonderful product." says Dana.
