Frutex, who has been a client with us since 1999 is currently getting ready for EOFY. Their site entails 60,000 square metres with total of seven warehouses. The company is a technology leader in the food industry, investing heavily in state-of-the-art plants and equipment.


Harry, who is the IT & Marketing manager of Frutex, says:

“Heads up, we are stocktaking today using SapphireOne’s new improved multi-warehouse support, with live stocktake visual map updates, which shows us what’s been counted as we go along…. it’s been great working with the SapphireOne team who have worked tirelessly over the last couple of weeks to make this possible for us.

We recently built a new warehouse / freezer / production facility that adds over 12,000 pallet spaces to our warehousing that is now a total of 44,000 pallets of dry and frozen storage.

Using Sapphire’s WebPack we are able to stocktake the entire facility in 2 days, with 15 teams of stocktakers working simultaneously on iPads, we also have recently installed a new 10G ubiquity network utilising over 100 UniFi devices with 100% site Wi-Fi coverage and over 100 surveillance cameras monitoring the site. The entire operation is easily managed by a very small IT team and monitored via iPad and iPhone apps.”

How a Commission Program works?

SapphireOne will process an employee Commission for you,  and you can view the Sales Commission Report.

Commission is what you pay to employees or agents /IRS when they make a sale or accomplish some other goal. Commissions can be a percentage of a sale, or they can be a flat amount based on the sales volume. These types of payments are based on results. Sales positions, like a car salesman or real estate agent, commonly earn commissions.

Let’s say your employee is a salesman. The employee sells a $1,000 computer and receives a 6% commission on the sale. That means the employee earns $60 in commission income for selling the computer.

According to the ATO if the commission, bonus or similar payment relates to work your employee performed in a single pay period (for example, a week, a fortnight or a month) the amount is added to all their other earnings for the current period. Withholding is then calculated using the standard PAYG withholding tax tables.

The IRS classifies commission as a type of supplemental pay. Supplemental wages are payments made to an employee that aren’t regular wages. Other types of supplemental wages include bonus payments, overtime pay, accrued personal time off, and back pay.

You provide commission payments either as an employee’s sole wages or in addition to regular wages.

How Do Employers Pay Employees in Sales?

Employees with a job in sales make a base salary and often a sales commission for meeting or exceeding particular sales targets. A sales commission is an additional compensation the employee receives for meeting and exceeding the minimum sales threshold.

Employers pay employees a sales commission to incentivise the employees to produce more sales and to reward and recognise people who perform most productively. The sales commission has proven to be an effective way to compensate salespeople and to promote more sales of the product or the service. This is why the use of a sales commission is widespread in some organisations.

SapphireOne will allow you to manage commissions, also you can set up custom fields, calculate formulas and configure dashboards and show reports.

You can track your sales by employee, sales rep, etc. under Inventory module.
