QCommission overview

What is QCommission?

QCommission is a powerful, flexible sales commission software tool. It calculates sales people’s compensation, accurately, quickly and professionally. QCommission is integrated with Salesforce, SugarCRM, Oracle Fusion, Sage, Microsoft Dynamics & QuickBooks but can also be operated stand- alone.

Sales compensation 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. Because of the highly variable nature of commission calculations, solutions attempting to solve the problem have to 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 can calculate these and other types of commission calculations very effectively -

• Split commission for multiple reps

• Overrides for managers

• Varying commission rates by products or customers

• Varying commission rates by attainment

• Commissions based on gross profit

• Commissions based on paid invoices versus regular invoices

• Commissions on sales orders

• Deductions of expenses from commissions


QCommission allows the compensation administrator to establish payees, products, customers, plans, incentives, quotas, payment frequency, etc in the system. It allows the establishment of crediting and calculation rules for various incentives. It helps to enter or import performance transactions into the system and calculate incentives as frequently as necessary. Adjustments to the transactions can be made and processed in the system. QCommission complies with Sarbanes-Oxley regulations.

In addition, Qcommission has the ability to include the plan document and plan document approval within the system, by Payees and Managers, etc

We had an overall positive experience in all phases of the configuration & implementation of QC.

Used occasionally for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Big enough to support our needs yet affordable

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Web-based consideration

Used weekly for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

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.

Cons
Not web-based

Review Source: GetApp

Pros
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

Cons
Can require support for material plan changes Web-based tool takes time to adapt to A more intuitive web interface would be helpful

Excellent. The product, the customer service, the overall solution has been streamlined.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

GetApp Analysis

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.


What is QCommission?

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.

Main Features

Split Commission for Multiple Reps

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.

Multiple Incentives Per Plan

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.

Varying Commissions by Products or Customers

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.

Reporting Tools

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.


Integrations

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.


Pricing

QCommission operates on a subscription pricing model, starting at $10 per month.

  • Flexible software to calculate sales rep commissions
