For most companies, the presence of errors in the calculation or amounts of commission paid to their employees is recurrent, if not systematic. This is a source of wasted time, tension and, ultimately, a drop in sales rep performance!

To find out how to ensure the reliability of its employees' commissions, Qobra's teams went to meet many sales reps in prestigious companies such as Spendesk, Hosman, Pennylane, Welcome to the Jungle, Partoo, Glady and many others.

Their experience and feedback give us an insight into the benefits of switching from Excel or Google Sheet to a commissioning tool.

1. CRM integration for reliable data in real time

Integrations Qobra

The integration of commission tools with CRM systems means that sales reps data can be retrieved in real time, without the need for manual input. This direct connection ensures that the data used to calculate commissions is always up-to-date and accurate. Sales reps can therefore have complete confidence in the figures presented, knowing that they are based on reliable, up-to-date data.

"By using Qobra to calculate our commissions and organise our sales reps, we can be sure of the reliability of the data because we're linked to our CRM in real time."

Théo Manachem, Sales Ops at SeLoger

2. Eliminating human error through automation

📊 Figures to remember

According to a Qobra & Modjo study on variable pay in France, 46.1% of employees receiving variable pay have already suffered at least 1 error in the amount of their variable pay.

Automating the calculation of commissions is one of the main advantages of commission management tools such as Qobra. By eliminating manual adjustments and incorrect data entry, these tools considerably reduce the risk of human error.

"Qobra completely eliminates input errors, it's much more reliable."

Barthélémy Morin, Head of Sales at Pretto

A commissioning tool follows precise pre-defined calculation rules, and is intended for pre-selected employees. Ultimately, automation ensures that every member of the sales rep team is remunerated fairly and accurately, boosting trust and satisfaction within the team.

3. Automated checking of calculation formulas

Commission management tools such as Qobra automatically check calculation formulas for any errors or inconsistencies. This feature ensures that calculations are carried out accurately and in accordance with established rules. Sales reps can therefore rest assured that commissions are calculated fairly and transparently, boosting sales teams' confidence in the remuneration system.

"With Qobra, there is no potential discussion around calculation errors."

Pierre-Gaël Pasquiou, Chief Sales Officer at Welcome to the Jungle

4. Total transparency for independent verification

Unlike traditional spreadsheets, commission management tools offer total transparency over commission calculations and allow sales reps to check their own remuneration. This autonomy in verifying data increases sales reps' confidence in the remuneration process and reduces potential conflicts linked to calculation errors. Sales reps can therefore establish a climate of trust and collaboration within their team, encouraging motivation and performance.

"Qobra allows us to make the variable topic more transparent and intelligible for the teams."

Pierre-Gaël Pasquiou, Chief Sales Officer at Welcome to the Jungle
