Callidus vs. Compgun | Sales Commission Software

Prospective buyers frequently ask us if Compgun can handle specific compensation scenarios. They've noticed these pain points in the past and want to be sure that our system can handle true-ups, changes in management or ownership of accounts, manual adjustments, and any of the other nightmarish scenarios that keep sales comp managers up and night.

Thus far, the answer from us has always been a resounding yes, and our confidence sometimes gives customers pause. The reason for this is that Compgun uses a fundamentally different approach to sales compensation. Here we'll focus on some of the differences between Callidus Cloud and Compgun that we think customers should consider before making their final decision.

Callidus Cloud was formed close to twenty years ago, in the early days of the internet, and offers solutions for every aspect of running and managing a sales team, of which sales compensation is one part. For a large, enterprise sales force that requires enterprise agility, buying into an entire ecosystem contractually locked in for several years can provide some advantages. However, there are pros and cons to every system, and when deciding which product is right for you, remember to ask yourself the following questions.

Before buying Callidus, be sure to ask these questions.

  • Can I see a demo with my plan set up in it?
  • How long will it take to get set up?
  • How much will it cost me to change my plan?

These are Compgun's answers to those questions.

  • Yes! We set up your first plan for free before you're committed to paying a dime.
  • A few hours at most.
  • Nothing. We want you to be empowered to take charge of your comp plans with as little overhead as possible.
