Reviews of QCommission

Joe says...

QCommissions has been our commission software for several years now. It has enabled us to easily track large volumes of data with very intricate sales commission plans. The software has allowed us to finish our commissions in half of the time it used to take us with our old program.

The good: The time saved, the professional appearance of the reports and the financial analysis details provided are a huge benefit. The reports are very easy to read for the sales person and upper management. We are able to use the reports to calculate accurate cost and benefit analysis on our employees and our clients.

The bad: Sometimes after updates, we do notice software glitches that have to be fixed. Additionally, it is difficult to change some items after it has been imported from our accounting software system.

Steve from Visual App says...

Easy to use interface. Powerful commission and incentive calculations.

The good: Previous commissions were simple and basic. Q Commission gives me the opportunity to add incentives that would be time consuming to calculate. The link to Quickbooks is awesome. Great customer service. Problem solved with Q Commission.

The bad: Historic reporting could be improved.

Susan says...

This is a robust program that has met our needs. We probably don’t begin to use all the features available. The support group is always responsive to me - whether it be for a real issue or guiding me through a new process. I have not reached expert level, by any means, but am comfortable with the program and know that help is there if I need it.

The good: Even after a year I still discover new things about the software. The reporting, especially, is an area where I hope to become more proficient.

The bad: I wish the on-line help was more intuitive. Sometimes the terminology that I think I need to use does not return an answer, because the search doesn’t recognize my question. When that happens, I have to ask a human being - so support gets an email.

Sheryl from Oswald Marketing says...

We’ve been using QCommission for 2 years now, and every time I’ve had an issue with it, they are quick to fix it.

The good: That it saves me time in calculating employee commissions

The bad: the occasional glitch

Kim says...

Our company uses this program to calculate our commission amounts for our sales people. It is a program that is easy to use and adaptable as needed. It allows you the ease to break your sales people up by different plans, programs and/or commission percentages.

The good: QCommission made it possible to complete our commission calculations in a couple of hours instead of a couple of days.

The bad: For someone who it not as tech savvy we are more dependent on customer service to help us add, change or inactive information as needed.
