Do I have to deploy other parts of the Maplewave platform to use your Commissions module?
No, every part of our platform is modular, so you can deploy commissions as a standalone service. That said, deploying other modules may be the best way to overcome certain challenges, such as incentivizing sales in your indirect channel, or being able to better manage your dealer locations.
For example, our BI & Reporting solution includes pre-built summary and detail-level reports for channels, markets, dealers, and staff, making management effortless.
And our POS lets sales staff see their commissions in real-time, which further promotes sales and incentivizes the selling of your products vs your competitors in indirect channels.
Can you manage commissions for individual staff and large dealers with multiple locations?
Yes. Our commissions solution can be used to establish different commission structures for sales staff, store managers, supervisors, dealers - even whole channels.
Each party can have their own unique commission structure that incentivizes certain activities, whether that’s selling a certain type of product, ensuring the accuracy of inventory and cash balancing, or overall branch performance.
Our solution’s multi-tenant capability supports multiple markets and channels with shared or unique configurations.
How do you handle claw backs if a customer disconnects or one of the commission rules is broken?
The heart of our commissions engine is a transaction database that can house positive and negative records. When a claw back is necessary, a negative value record is added to the transactional database, and this amount will be deducted from the next commission payout cycle. Note: this feature requires an integration to applicable third-party systems, so the commission module knows when to trigger a claw back.
