We’ve been busy this January at Spiff. Not only have we added tons of extensions to our existing system but we also added an entirely new product to the Spiff family–Plan Designer!

Plan Designer

We’re thrilled to announce the birth of Plan Designer, a new tool for finance teams to design and build commission plans inside Spiff.

Here is a sneak peek……

We put months of research into Plan Designer…We started from scratch and deconstructed the entire commission plan building process.

 We found users care about 3 things:

  1. Transparency–the ability to fully understand all commission calculations.
  2. Visibility–the ability to share easy-to-understand calculations with the relevant parties–like sales reps.
  3. Testability–the ability for business users to modify, update, and experiment with their own commission rules.

We hope we’ve combined the flexibility of spreadsheets with the scalable power of Saas to create a delightful experience for you. We believe Plan Designer will empower finance teams to create optimal compensation plans for their organizations. We are excited to show you how cool it is. Please let us know what you think!

We will present Plan Designer for the first time at Saastr and it will be available to all customers on Feb. 11, 2019. If you are at Saastr, visit our booth #715 to get more information or email me directly if you would like a demo.

Other January Improvements

Support for Invoices, Events, and Assets

This month alone, we have added support for Invoices, Events, and Assets in Spiff. This means we can easily pull information for these objects from your external systems and use them in the commission calculations we build in Spiff.  

Support for Custom Objects

Maybe even cooler than our support for the standard objects above, we can now pull in data from any custom object in Salesforce (and many other systems).     

Full Calculation Traces

We are 100% committed to full transparency in all of Spiff’s commission calculations. As a result, we made any calculated value in Spiff fully traceable allowing users to conduct the most thorough audits possible about how their commissions are calculated.

Table Customization Search Bar

Some companies have very long lists of fields they sync from their CRM so we added a search bar inside our table customization drawer to make it easier and faster for them to expose just the right fields on statements.


We sprinkled some tooltips across the entire app to make sure users can get all the details they need about features, right in context.

In addition to all these improvements, we’ve also added many backend features to make Spiff even more powerful as well as some smaller features and design enhancements.

As always, If you have any questions, comments or feedback, please let me know directly. Also if you would like a demo, click here and we will be happy to schedule one for you. You may also watch a quick video about our Product or just go to spiff.com for more details.
