We are beta testing our upcoming Pay Split feature, which allows you to set up rules for how much each inspector gets paid for each service.
From Settings->Basics hit "Pay Splits" to go into the Pay Split Manager. (This is only visible if access to the feature is enabled for your account. Contact us for details.)
From here, you'd first set an "Overall Default". This is the base percentage of revenue you pay out to each inspector for any service that you don't specify additional rules. This can be a percentage (with optional pre-split deduction) or a flat amount.
If you always pay out the same percentage to each inspector for everything, set this and you're done!
Below, you'll see "Per-Service Overrides". These allow you to specify additional rules for each service or add-on. These would take precedence over the "Overall Default". For example, here you see that everything will use the Overall Default except for Radon, which instead pays a flat $100 to the employee:
If you wish to remove this rule and use the Overall Default, just hit "Revert to default."
Often you have inspectors that make more than others due to seniority or skill. You can set up their pay splits in the "Per-Inspector Overrides" section. These are the most specific and override the Overall Default and Per-Service Overrides. For example, here you'll see that this particular inspector makes a higher percentage for these services:
"Revert to default" will remove the per-inspector override and default to the Service Override (if set) or the Overall Default otherwise.
Team members with the "Company Admin" privilege (set in Team page) will be able to see a new box on each inspection:
Note that for team inspections (more than one inspector) admins will have to manually decide how much the additional inspectors get paid.
Also note that manually editing of fees or adding of additional fees without an associated service do not add to pay splits. IE You must use the "Services" functionality when scheduling and adding services for those fees to be used for pay split purposes.
Hitting "Reset" will re-run the calculations based on the services present. After making any manual changes, be sure to hit "Save"!
We'll be building a quick way to view and export reports of how much you owe your inspectors.
Feedback / Questions
Thanks for taking a sneak-peak at this upcoming feature. Please let us know any feedback you have, including:
- Is the system easy to understand and easy to use?
- Does the system cover all of your use cases?
- How can the system be improved?
- If you do team inspections, how do you split pay among the inspectors? If most companies have a similar method we can build some logic in around this.
- How often do you do payroll? Monthly? Weekly? Biweekly? 1st and 15th?
