Our story

Calculating commissions is mission-critical. And it’s really, really hard. Each company has a unique commission structure that involves far more calculations and data than a typical salary payroll — and for many, commission is one of the largest expenses on the P&L statement.

When CaptivateIQ was founded in 2017, compensation leaders were tracking and managing sales data using costly legacy software or, in the worst cases, a single spreadsheet. There were no other options but to use opaque, error-prone processes to manage commissions. Our founders knew this could be better.
So they created the solution that they’d want to use: CaptivateIQ.

Our hope is to empower everyone involved in the commission process. Our goal is to have all commissions live in CaptivateIQ — thereby providing revenue-focused teams with the data and insights they need to make informed decisions and develop winning strategies.

We’ve come a long way since our early days, but we’re focused on many more fulfilling years to come.
