CaptivateIQ has announced its latest updates. The sales commissions management platform now enables sales representatives to view statements and make inquiries at any point in the fiscal the quarter. This capability enables finance to resolve issues before issuing payroll.

“With CaptivateIQ, we eliminate potential payout issues that would otherwise surface on payday,” said Sean Emberley, Sales Operations Analyst at Planview. “CaptivateIQ’s preview statement inquiries help ensure that sales reps don’t have to wait to get paid if there are payout disputes, which can take weeks after the month closes before they get paid. Questions and disputes are now resolved as they occur throughout the month, which helps our finance team resolve them and gives sales teams encouragement that they are getting paid on time and accurately.”
