Amidst economic uncertainty, sales productivity is even more critical for all organizations. Keeping reps motivated is top of mind for leadership: our State of Sales Compensation 2022 survey found that 60% of sales managers have adjusted their compensation plans to reflect the economic environment. However, incentive compensation plans are only as effective in motivating reps to achieve revenue targets as the level of understanding and engagement reps have with their compensation.
“There are three key challenges that limit the motivational power that compensation plans can have on reps: lack of understanding of their compensation plans, an inability to forecast future earnings, and a lack of insight on their performance over time and relative to others. It is with this in mind that CaptivateIQ reimagined our rep experience to deliver on the unique needs and expectations of salespeople," said Naveed Makhani, Vice President of Product at CaptivateIQ.
Today we’re announcing a redesign of our Rep Experience and highly-anticipated What-if Earnings Calculator. Together, these capabilities will provide reps with enhanced visibility into past, present, and future earnings while empowering them to self-motivate and stay focused on performing at their very best.
Redesigned Rep Experience
To give reps and their managers better visibility into commissions and overall team performance, CaptivateIQ redesigned its entire Rep Experience to ensure reps and managers can access the information they need, when they need it — all in a modern and engaging experience. This includes a new CaptivateIQ homepage that provides reps with a cockpit view, surfacing the commissions insights they care about most. With visibility into their current and most recently completed payouts, trends over time, and outstanding tasks (reviews and inquiries), reps can get what they need quickly and get back to what matters most … selling.
“CaptivateIQ's redesigned Rep Experience streamlines the way our team consumes their commissions. It’s easy-to-use, and the clear and concise homepage eliminates commissions confusion and helps build trust across our team."

What-if Earnings Calculator
The majority of sales reps believe that visibility into potential earnings significantly increases motivation, yet fewer than 30% of companies offer this functionality today.
Our new What-if Earnings Calculator (in beta) provides reps with an interactive way to test different scenarios and gain visibility into future earnings. With this tool, reps can input the parameters important to their commission payout (deal amount, terms, etc.) and get visibility into what they could earn and how different levers impact their commissions. This helps reps financially plan, self-motivate, and prioritize the right activities, helping supercharge their productivity.
We’re also proud to share that our What-if Earnings Calculator is uniquely built to produce estimates based on the same commission logic used in production calculations. This helps ensure that these rep-facing estimates are always in line with the latest and greatest plan configuration — and gives finance teams and commission administrators peace of mind!
“Providing transparency and flexibility to our sales team is important for successful incentive management. The CaptivateIQ What-if Earnings Calculator enables sales teams to get clear visibility into their incentives, in ways they've never had before.”
Jake F., Finance Manager, Abnormal Security
