QCommission Integration with Wisenet

Sales commission programs are possibly the most variable programs conducted by a firm. These programs tend to vary significantly from industry to industry, and many times within companies in an industry. Sales commission programs tend to be different by employees even within a single firm. Because of the highly variable nature of commission calculations, solutions attempting to solve the problem must be highly sophisticated. At the same time, they should not burden the user with additional complexity in their operations. One key area of complexity is allowing data interchange between the customer's existing accounting systems and the commissions system. A commission system that can understand the structure of the accounting system data and seamlessly bring in the appropriate data necessary for calculating commissions can be a huge benefit in reducing the inherent complexity in that process.

QCommission is a powerful, flexible sales commission software tool. It calculates sales people's compensation accurately, quickly and professionally. QCommission is integrated with QuickBooks® but can also be operated stand- alone.

QCommission is a fully web-based SaaS application with the ability to be implemented as a public or private cloud application.

Importing Data
Commissions are primarily calculated on Revenue. Revenues are mostly based on invoices entered into the Wisenet system. The various attributes of invoices can be used in the calculation of commissions. In many situations, sales reps are directly associated with invoices. This can be used in properly crediting the invoice to the sales rep prior to calculating commissions. Other data attributes useful in commission calculations include learner, promotion, course enrolment, etc.

A key requirement is the ability to only import enrolment transactions for the particular commission period that is being currently processed. The QCommission system automatically understands the date range being processed and only brings in the transactions necessary for proper calculations. The system brings in data from Wisenet system and push it into QCommission as transactions. The transactions will be used to do the calculations.

QCommission does a tremendous job, understanding the intricacies of the Wisenet as well as the complications inherent in the data integration process.  With this ability it integrates the two systems in such a manner that the complexity to the customer is reduced to a minimal level.
