Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.

Xactly CEA

CEA is well suited for small and rapidly growing companies where manually calculating commissions expense for ASC606 is not an option due to a lack of internal resources. CEA is less appropriate for larger companies that have the resources and likely a person, or people, who only focus on commissions.

Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

Go into implementation knowing how you will handle churn, if there are claw backs, treatment for every type of commission payment (i.e. new business, renewals, etc.) and know your average customer life. You'll also want details by customer for as far back as you can go (within reason).
