Services - Implementation

implementation phase
 

Sales Commission is a complex process. Implementing commission solutions takes some effort. There are many reasons for this. Some possible reasons impacting implementation complexity are:

  • Integration data from Accounting/CRM datasources or Excel
  • Integration of data back to Payroll and Accounts Payable systems
  • Improper set up of source data to be able to integrate (e.g. Reps not specified, Costs not specified)
  • Paying both internal and external staff
  • Necessity of doing figuring out gross profit from sales, when cost data is not clearly available
  • Necessity of calculating commissions at one time (Invoicing) and holding on to pay at a different time (Cash receipt)
  • Necessity of loading past attainment into the system, when commissions rates and bonuses are based already processed data
  • Ability to cancel/claw back past paid commissions at the proper rate. Needing to have the past transactions loaded
  • Rolling up and providing overrides to other individuals
  • Many unique plans by groups and by individuals
  • Many exceptions to processing
  • Suggesting business process changes and implementation of these business process changes
