Our opinion on CaptivateIQ

CaptivateIQ offers a robust and intuitive sales compensation plan solution, characterized by its excel-like approach that resonates well with sales executives, enabling real-time insights for sales reps on their commissions and targets, and featuring deep integrations with leading technologies such as Salesforce, HubSpot, and NetSuite. However, it's not without weaknesses; the platform sometimes requires manual interventions, particularly with Google Drive, and users may experience slow loading times due to the intensive calculations. Despite these issues, CaptivateIQ sets itself apart with unique features such as a logic-based modeling platform, extensive out-of-the-box integrations, easy setup of quotas and targets, and customizable incentives including SPIFs, accelerators, and clawbacks, alongside automated calculation of incentives, making it a powerful tool for managing sales compensations.

What we like:

  • CaptivateIQ’s excel-like approach to building sales compensation plans makes it intuitive and familiar for more sales executives.
  • With CaptivateIQ your sales reps can receive a real-time snapshot of their current sales commissions, targets, and how they’re pacing towards them.
  • CaptivateIQ provides deep and seamless integreations with some of the top technologies used across your sales team including, but not limited to; Salesforce, HubSpot, and Netsuite.

What we don't like:

  • There are still some manual steps and a lack of seamless integrations with Google Drive, which can sometimes be a nuisance.
  • Some pages across CaptivateIQ can take a bit of time to load because of the number of active calculations.
  • Unfortunately, if you want to get started with CaptivateIQ and test out the sales commission software, you'll need to schedule a demo with their team. This ensures you fully understand the platform's full capabilities and help answer any questions you may have.

Unique product features:

  • Logic based modeling platform
  • Out-of-the-box integrations
  • Easily set up quotas and targets
  • Customizable SPIFs, accelerators, clawbacks
  • Automated incentive calculations
