For customers who subscribe to Plan Management Services , analysts have a high level of access to information being managed through NetCommissions, allowing them to quickly adjust to dynamic competitive conditions through management of key plan data and variables such as rate tables, organizational hierarchies, territories, quota's, SPIF's, etc.

For customers who subscribe to Reporting Services , analysts have high levels of visibility to not only key data and variables upon which the plans depend, but also to the reports to which everyone in the organization they support have access. This, of course, is subject to the security and access rules of each customer. One thing we have found is that no two companies support their payee base in exactly the same manner, thus NetCommissions has taken a very flexible approach in how report access is securely managed.

For customers who subscribe to Workflow Solutions , analysts have dashboard level access and control of the processes which have been automated using NetCommissions Business Process Management technology. The high level of automation that turns manual firefighting drills into automated, custom configured web applications, brings high levels of control to these processes and allows the analyst to focus more on the strategic intent of the process and less on its manual administration.
