Flexible Commission Plans:

Racing Snail enables you to create a commission plan that aligns your sales team with your company’s specific objectives. But creating a plan is only the first step; an effective commission plan influences action through communication. Racing Snail clearly communicates three critical facts to induce action:

What have I earned?
What could I earn?
How can I earn it?

Tiers, accelerators, activity bonuses, consistency bonuses, and team-based plans are just some of the mechanisms available to create a motivating commission plan to drive your business.

Activity Plans:

Businesses that utilize daily activity plans have performance that is significantly greater than those that do not – up to 30% greater*.

Activity plans keep your team focused upon the leading indicators that will ultimately produce sales. By managing these leading indicators, managers can identify and correct pipeline-building problems BEFORE they become sales problems.

Racing Snail enables managers to make educated decisions based upon information rather than intuition. But team members also want and need access to performance data.

Interactive data visualizations enable both managers and team members to identify trends, understand the relationships between leading and lagging indicators, and evaluate performance individually and as a team.

Many Racing Snail clients experience increased performance simply from exposing real-time performance data that enables team members to self-coach.

Made tangible through...

"What if" Calculations:

“Left on the Table” calculations continuously motivate performance by making potential earnings visible and tangible.

Good sales reps want to know how much they can make. Many maintain their own spreadsheets to track their progress and project their earnings. Racing Snail’s Compensation Estimator empowers reps to motivate themselves by seeing both what they could earn and a clear pathway to earn it.

ROI Reports:

Ever wondered when you will “break-even” for one of your team members? ROI reports illuminate the short and long-term return on investment for individuals or even the entire team by comparing a team member’s costs with the revenue they generate. Calculations even extrapolate and incorporate future revenues for residual income businesses such as insurance agencies to estimate the number of months it takes to “break-even” on your investment.

Marketing ROI reports help you to quickly differentiate between profitable and unprofitable marketing sources at both a broad category-based level or all the way down to specific marketing campaigns.

“Racing Snail is a great tool to help motivate my sales staff to constantly try to reach the next level! One of the features I like most is how my sales staff can literally see their paycheck in real-time. I will never ever be going back to using spreadsheet for commissions!”

Team Members:
Provides the motivational triggers that drive performance, engagement, and work satisfaction.

Poor transparency into commission calculations and KPI data obscure powerful motivational triggers that drive action

Racing Snail shows commissions in real time so team members always know exactly what they will earn. Commission reports and calculators enable team members to clearly understand the commission plan as well as how they can maximize their earnings.

The commission plan influences the right behaviors because team members understand the connection between what they do, and what they earn.

“I’m making more money than ever before because I finally understand what I need to do to maximize my commissions. I used to just guess and hope for the best, now I’m on target month after month and I absolutely love that feeling.”
