Ever heard the term “managed services”? According to Forbes, it’s a program that lets an organization delegate management of a system to a third party. It’s a lot like outsourcing in that way. For us, it’s a way to break the endless chain of events involved with in-house commission management beyond just commission software.
Managed Services allow businesses to work with well-trained teams who can handle a set of specific tasks.
It’s more common than you think. Sales organizations spend time and money recruiting, hiring, and training someone to handle commissions. The new hires immediately get buried in a complex and often hard-to-understand job. They eventually burn out and quit. This brings the organization back to the recruiting and hiring process and the cycle begins again.
We created managed services for our clients looking to break the chain and trust someone else to handle commissions. If you aren’t familiar with it, we’d like to break it down for you a bit more.
What’s Managed Services?
When most people think of outsourcing, they think of companies handling tasks like customer service. Managed services go beyond that. It includes a team of trained specialists prepared to handle a system or network. Those specialists oversee a system or network, provide maintenance and updates, and any other required tasks.
Subscribers to Core Commissions’ Managed Services plan gain access to our powerful but flexible application. A team of highly skilled commission specialists takes over from there. They handle data processing, statement conversion, imports, calculations, reporting, and anything else commission-related.
Who Needs Managed Services?
Sales organizations of all sizes struggle to properly manage commissions. The job sucks up time and resources. The tasks involved seem straightforward from afar but in reality, they can be complicated or just really tedious. It’s enough to make a commission administrator go crazy. Or at least cause them a lot of frustration.
No organization needs that added burden. It ruins the entire dynamic of the team. If commission management didn’t have to be conducted in-house, the team could focus on more fruitful efforts.
Our Managed Services subscribers include sales teams of all sizes from all different industries. They all have one thing in common: they’d rather not deal with every single commission detail.
