QuotaPath Success Stories

Of course, don’t take our word for it. Let our customers speak for themselves.

“It was obvious that QuotaPath would have a manageable implementation and a more cost-efficient approach than CaptivateIQ. QuotaPath seemed more aligned with what we were looking to do by securely integrating our data with Salesforce over Spiff.” – Thomas Egbert, Head of Finance

“Our CFO is a whiz with Excel. He can do it all. The problem is that spreadsheets are not scalable. If he got sick or something happened, then what? There’s no platform. No system of record with different levels of access. We want people to see their projected earnings. We want to make it competitive. And we want to make it really easy to look at our recognized or earned commissions versus what we’re paying out. QuotaPath has made my job way easier. It’s made things more transparent, and our comp plans are way more organized. It’s a much quicker process. I would not go back to a spreadsheet now that we have this.” — Sarah Count, Chief Operating Officer 

“QuotaPath is great for increasing visibility and motivation. The direct integration with Salesforce key so that our team can see how changes to their forecast impact their compensation. The leaderboards are great too.”  — Stephen Young, CEO

“A major game-changer for me is the ease in which I can onboard a new team member. With our rapid growth, efficiency and accuracy here is a must,” Katie said. “Assigning a plan, quota, and rate in QuotaPath saves me about 30 minutes per employee.” — Katie Cooper, Sr. Business Manager, FP&A
