The Smarter Way to Manage Commission Plan Agreements

In the fast-paced world of sales, you have to be quick and nimble. Whether you’re a salesperson perfecting your elevator pitch or a finance leader looking for ways to keep the team motivated, things are always changing.

Two of the most consistent changes that we see in sales are:

  1. Companies adding new teammates
  2. Commission structures changing 

When new teammates join

Hooray! Your team is expanding! While everybody can’t wait for the new hire to join, there’s usually a stack of paperwork for them to fill out before the fun begins including the all-important commission plan agreement. 

Most companies use a Word Doc or PDF that they need to customize with the specific employee details, attach it to an email to send to each team member, and remember to follow up each week to make sure everyone’s approved the agreement. This process is not only manual and time-consuming but also risky for such an important document. 

When commission plans change 

Should we use a 60 or 90-day clawback? Can we implement a SPIFF this quarter? Commission plans are always changing to help companies optimize team performance while maximizing the bottom line. This is a great way to keep teams motivated by testing out different incentives. 

What’s not great though is sending updated agreements every time a new commission plan comes along. It shouldn’t be a full-time job to update a commission plan but unfortunately, it is for most companies that are sending new agreements manually.

Partnering with DocuSign to make plan management a breeze

We’ve made it incredibly easy to roll out new commission plan agreements with our Plan Management feature. Customers can revise and release agreements directly in CaptivateIQ and track their progress to get faster approvals.

Send and manage new plan agreements from one place


Plan Management lets admins:

  • Customize multiple agreements: create employee-specific agreements directly in CaptivateIQ and send them to one or more signers in bulk.
  • Track signature progress: monitor the status of each document to quickly see who has signed and who needs a reminder. Once the agreement is signed, you can access all agreements from your CaptivateIQ dashboard.
  • Send with confidence: securely send agreements through our DocuSign integration to ensure confidentiality. If you don’t have a DocuSign account, we’ll give you one for free.

Spend less time creating, sending, and tracking agreements whenever somebody joins the team or a new comp plan is introduced. With CaptivateIQ, you get hours back and your team can start selling sooner!
