Commission Builder

Newton's Commission Download is an invaluable tool for the modern agency. Some carriers, however, still do not offer downloadable statements. Commission Builder offers an easy way to create a batch of invoices for the our agents still receiving paper documents.

Enter a batch of invoices from a single screen, instead of loading each client and policy individually, automatically calculating agency and producer commissions as you go.
