EY have designed a Compensation Management solution with a dual focus – firstly to empower sales compensation managers to excel in their role by providing complete control over the commissions process and secondly to bolster sales rep confidence in the process by increasing the visibility of data available to understand their performance against targets.

This solution meets the needs of any sales compensation manager by automating and simplifying commission calculations while maintaining tight controls and traceability across performance data. sales compensation managers can manage and add compensation plans based on defined metrics to respond to the changing incentivization needs of the business. We also recognize the importance of exception management as part of the day-to-day role of a sales compensation manager and this flexibility has been embedded across the solution.

The importance of engaging and motivating sales teams for whom targets are set and assigned cannot be overstated. The solution provides full transparency for sales teams relating to performance against metrics. Using performance data from source systems, the solution offers visibility of performance against each metric, with associated incentive payments detailed for each sales representative.
