Sales Compensation

Improve Sales Performance to Deliver Extraordinary Results

An effective sales compensation plan boosts sales force motivation, grows sales and market share, makes selling costs predictable and reduces the cost of plan administration. An inferior plan does the opposite. ZS has worked with more than 350 companies to design compensation plans, set sales goals, run compensation operations and provide software so our clients can administer their own plans. Combined, these programs cover payouts of more than $1.3 billion annually.
