Our commission process as it existed before QCommission was slow, time-consuming and open to human error. Automating the processes we formerly did by hand has given our payroll person more time to devote to other things.
We were initially surprised that QCommission could handle our complicated multi-tier commission program but the people at QCommission told us it would be no problem. During the configuration phase we communicated with our QC project manager several times a week. Once the implementation period started, we threw a few additional requests their way which they were able to do without any problem. Our office manager and I were continually surprised that they were able to automate what was for us a time-consuming process which involved pen, paper, spreadsheets and color-coded stamps. This program has reduced our commission activities to a fraction of the time we used to spend on it. QCommission has helped our efficiency and we didn't need to break our budget to do it.
Honestly, we are fairly new users of QCommission and haven't encountered any notable "cons" yet. Our project manager and the QC support people have been very responsive so far so I'm confident that any trouble we may encounter down the road will be handled quickly and efficiently.
Hi Dave! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of QCommission! We're glad that QC has been a big help to you, and we hope to be able to continue to work with you for many years to come. Thanks again!

Prior to our implementation of QCommission, our commission process was manual, error prone and did not have any good reports for our commission-able employees. That meant the accounting department was always having to answer lots of questions, always double checking calculations, and it was a time consuming inefficient process. During our implementation process, we were able to refine our commission policy to be more fair and more effective. Our project manager,[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], was incredible to work with. She did not give up and really dug into our processes and ensured the software was implemented correctly.
The software reflects the team that designed it. It is surprisingly powerful for the cost. And it is surprisingly adaptable to complex commission structures. The QCommission team was absolutely great to work with. They stayed with us tenaciously during the implementation phase as we not only changed our commission software but our accounting software. Overall, it is a great product designed by great people.
I truly liked everything about the software. If I searched for a con, it would be that the user interface should be updated but that is truly minor when comparing to the functionality.
Hello, Denise! Thank you so much for writing a review for QCommission. Your words are truly heartwarming. I will make sure the customer success team receives this. Thank you so much, and we're glad you're happy with QCommission! :)
All the best,

Having worked with web-based commission systems, the current version of QCommission we are using is not an efficient process for our current operation. The need to create an upload form in Excel rather than uploading an unaltered carrier commission statement to process commission is time consuming and increases the risk of errors. Including paying the wrong agent, the policy doesn't exist in the Master File, etc. A small operation with experienced commission processors should not take a staff of three to complete paying commission every two weeks. Perhaps a web-based system would allow for direct upload of carrier commission statement eliminating the need to create an upload of information from many sources.
HI Teal! Thank you so much for writing us this review. We appreciate the honesty. Please rest assured that we have forwarded your concerns to the appropriate team as we'd like to further improve for our customers' benefit.

Our Company uses QCommission with QuickBooks Enterprise to calculate and report sales commission for our sales and account management team. This versatile web-based tool has allowed us to implement a commission plan that is free of the burdens of a manual process. The QCommission Team worked closely with us to help implement and test the system prior to putting it into active production. This tool integrates well with QuickBooks to allow our Company to accurately calculate and pay commission. We are able to pay and report commissions timely, provide visibility to management and payees through the reporting capabilities and complete the process with substantially less effort. The tool has the ability to manage commission plans that range from the simple to the complex, allowing for changes as a company's needs changes. The QCommission Support Team is responsive and has always helped resolve any issues or address questions. I would strongly recommend this tool for any company seeking to efficiently and effectively manage a commission program. Pros Versatile web-based Integrates well with QuickBooks Can manage commission plans that range from the simple to the complex Good analytics and reporting Cost effective
Can require support for material plan changes Web-based tool takes time to adapt to A more intuitive web interface would be helpful

It has been an immense time savings to our company. With paying near 1,000 payees with over 60 different comp plans, this flexible solution has been extremely helpful in tracking payee movement, incentives, and audit trails. Not to mention, the support team's customer service is second to none. For the low price of the system, we've already seen a return on investment in our eyes.
One must be very detailed when going thru the requirements of the software with the implementation team, and if adding enhancements going forward as well.
Hi Laura, this is great! We're glad that QCommission has been a huge help to you and that you're already seeing a return on investment! I have noted down the "con" that you mentioned and will share it with the appropriate team so we can continue to improve. Thank you for taking the time to write this review! We sincerely appreciate it. :)
The pricing of QCommission is based on the number of payees/users setup in the system. The recurring license pricing starts at USD $13 per payee per month, one of the most affordable in the market.
Accurately calculating sales commission has traditionally been a difficult process, with errors and delays frequently occurring at the interchange between existing accounting and commissions systems. QCommission has found a way to decrease the challenges associated with this using the latest cloud-based technology.
Although QCommission integrates with popular business platforms such as Salesforce and Quickbooks, it can also be used as a standalone app. Using a streamlined process for calculating sales commissions, it enables compensation administrators to manage payments and payee transactions accurately and efficiently.
A few of QCommission’s most noteworthy features include the ability for users to split commissions for multiple reps, as well as vary commission rates by product or customer, and handle commissions based on gross profits. Businesses can also run commissions based on paid invoices vs. regular invoices, and they can deduct expenses from commissions based on customized standards set by internal regulations.
QCommission provides flexible sales commission software that calculates compensation using real-time data. Rather than relying on the manual entry of sales figures into spreadsheets, it calculates commissions automatically for any given period of time. Performance transactions can be imported or entered into the system as often as necessary. When this occurs, those transactions are immediately processed, calculated, and credited.
Businesses that use QCommission can expect to see a reduction in errors related to miscalculations. Compensation administrators also benefit from additional reporting, which ensures accuracy and helps users review calculations in detail. For organizations that adopt QCommission’s technology, the platform can become a critical component to the sales commission program. It allows for unlimited rules and customizations to meet the needs of businesses in a wide array of industries.
What happens when multiple sales reps work together on a deal? The complex calculations required with manual entry systems can slow down the workflow and delay payouts to reps. With QCommission, however, organizations are able to quickly and efficiently split commission payouts to two or more reps, even when distributions are not allocated equally.
Using QCommission’s tools, you can also override standard splits when the need arises. Rather than retroactively splitting income and expenses, QCommission runs its operations in real-time to decrease payout delays.
Consultants will often receive paid incentives for their participation in projects. With QCommission, organizations can offer financial incentives for nearly any action. Incentives can be paid out on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.
Select the incentives you plan to offer employees and then choose the frequency of payment that makes sense for your organization. You can choose to provide flat payments or rates that reflect the volume of sales or referrals brought in by the employee. Whatever plan your company designs, QCommission can handle the administration, including calculations and communications.
With QCommission, organizations are able to vary the commission rates they offer based on product or customer. For example, salespeople may be encouraged to sell Product A by offering a higher commission rate, or to attract new customers by offering higher commissions on sales made to first-time buyers.
Customer-based crediting refers to instances in which customer information is used in credit rules. That way, sales to particular customers (or groups of customers) can be automatically credited to the correct payee with as little manual entry from the organization’s standpoint as possible.
Using QCommission’s technology, organizations are able to generate standard reports with the data available. The system provides a vast number of standard report options.
Some of the most popular reports include payout, financial, and transactions. Payout reports are based on the results generated from commission plan execution, while transaction reports are based on the source transactions a user has imported into the system.
QCommission integrates with Salesforce and Quickbooks, along with many other popular business applications. The system also integrates with Excel and XML files. An API is available for use, as well.
QCommission operates on a subscription pricing model, starting at $10 per month.
