key suggestions for design
Streamline where possible

Group into higher level commission buckets

Minimize give/take back

Minimize exceptions

Settle with reps as they move positions

Be open to adjustments of commission philosophy

Commission exactly as you do today = customizations

Think outside the box

Consistency in structure/process

Utilize rates to drive different performance rather than different elements

Key Suggestions for Design
commission situation suggestion
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 1: Company reports information at multiple levels but only pays commission at a few levels.
  • Suggestions:
    • Place the levels for commission purposes in the hierarchy.
    • Setup a reporting structure using either/or areas/regions for reports or a data warehouse environment.
commission situation suggestion10
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation #1 Example:
  • Setup the Sales Rep and Region Manager in the Sales Rep Hierarchy
commission situation suggestion11
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 2: Commission is paid on an extensive amount of elements causing a very complex setup and operating process.
  • Suggestion:
    • Try to group similar components together.
    • Determine if rate variations would cause the same desired result.
    • Determine if the end commission results warrants the various revenue class components.
    • Determine if an increase in base or % reaches the same goal.
commission situation suggestion13
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 3: Commission is paid when the invoice is paid in full.
  • Suggestions:
    • Change the approach to pay the commission when the invoice line is paid. OR
    • Customize the collection routine to only collect payment lines when the invoice amount due is <=0.
commission situation suggestion14
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 4: Different tiers are used for both the rate tables and the discounts associated to the rate tables.
  • Suggestions:
    • Modify the tiers to be consistent.
    • Modify the rates themselves and make the discounts consistent to obtain the desired results.
commission situation suggestion16
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 5: The company has unique processing for term reps, rep movement, promotions, etc.
  • Suggestions:
    • Settle the reps at all movement points.
    • Assign the rep a new rep number so data flows correctly when a heavy hierarchy situation exists.
    • Make the position comp plans large enough so plans do not change frequently.
commission situation suggestion17
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation #5 Example
  • Sales rep to make a territory transition
    • Current Territory
    • Sells: Camping Equipment, Golf Equipment and Skiing Equipment.
    • Commissions: Rolls up to District Manager for reporting purposes.
    • Location: Minnesota
    • Will be splitting Commissions with new rep for next three years.
    • Future Territory
    • Sells: Water Equipment, Biking Equipment and Golf Equipment.
    • Commissions: Rolls up to new manager for reporting purposes.
    • Location: California
    • Will be splitting Commissions with old rep for next three years.
commission situation suggestion18
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 6: The company has commission components and also allows for exceptions.
  • Suggestions:
    • Remove the majority of exception processing.
    • Make consistent business processing rules for each unique event.
    • Minimize your not/except for processing as this usually results in exponential amounts of revenue classes.
commission situation suggestion19
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation #6 Example
  • 10% commission is paid for selling a tent and any camping related equipment, for the exception of the third week in May when they will receive 12% on sleeping bags that were sold in the last week of April.
  • Solution = Manual
  • A decision has been made to run a context to boost sales. The contest will pay an extra 5% to sales reps in California only for selling a golf bag along with a full set of Callaway golf clubs.
  • Solution = Manual
commission situation suggestion20
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 7: The company has commission percentages setup at fraction of percents.
  • Suggestions:
    • Usually not real large issue.
    • Try to limit the percent tiers and the variation of ranges.
commission situation suggestion21
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 8: The company pays commission on “estimated” sales and then constantly adjusts as actual revenue comes in.
  • Suggestions:
    • Change the approach to pay the commission when invoicing occurs or when payment of the invoice lines occurs.
    • Write an interface from OE when the actual order is placed and remove the constant adjustment process.
commission situation suggestion22
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation #8 Example
  • This typically happens in the service industry, for instance having new carpet installed.
    • An estimate is given (Includes price of carpet and installation)
    • Estimate is put into system
    • Sales rep receives commissions
    • Work is completed
    • Invoice is cut for different amount
    • An adjustment has to made (manual or custom)
commission situation suggestion23
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation 9: The company has goals for the quarter. The reps do not achieve the quarterly goal and then achieves a later quarter goal at a higher level, they pay the previous non-performing quarters.
  • Suggestions:
    • Change the goal to an annual goal.
    • Increase the goals for cyclical variations.
commission situation suggestion24
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Situation #9 Example
  • Sales rep has a poor 1st quarter
  • Does not reach 1st quarter goals
  • Has a good 2nd quarter
  • Receives 2nd quarter bonus along with the 1st quarter bonus that he did not previously receive
commission situation suggestion25
Commission Situation/Suggestion
  • Open to Audience Situations
  • Suggestions
customization or comp plan business plan simplification
Customization or Comp Plan/Business Plan Simplification
  • Fully review options and end results of standard functionality
  • Always consider simplification/streamlining over customization
  • Customize for key performance differentiators only
  • Customize only for areas resulting in large compensation differences
