Managing commissions manually was tedious and offered limited insights for both leadership and commissionable teams
Prior to Everstage, MSH spent a significant amount of time running commission calculations manually. This time could have been better utilized to think of creative ways to amplify their incentive program.
Excel worked well for straightforward commissions. But the implementation of tiered structures and complex components presented many limitations such as accuracy issues and a lack of completeness in calculations. Landon Cortenbach, CFO at MSH, knew that scaling with spreadsheets would be difficult and time-consuming as the company grew. MSH was focused on delivering an incentive program that stayed true to its core values of cultivating an environment of transparency, trust, and rewards for hard work.
The MSH team realized the need for a collaborative, intuitive solution to handle commission calculation and payments. They were on a lookout for software that would house its commissions processes and payout data in a single space.
