For your MLM Software needs, Firestorm® offers a Multilevel commission payout that is completely user-configurable.

Multiple levels of payout can be configured, and deeper levels of pay can be configured for higher sales ranks (promotional titles), completely eliminating expensive custom programming when you set it up or make future changes. Trinity Software released Multilevel functionality as a standard part of Firestorm® when it was first released over 8 years ago. This means over 8 years of valuable MLM Software input from our clients that has evolved the Multilevel functionality. This functionality and many other configurable features are explained further below, providing you with total flexibility for implementation and ongoing management of your Multilevel compensation plan.

About any Multilevel feature you can think of is included and configurable in Firestorm®.
Just to give you an idea of Multilevel MLM Software capabilities of Firestorm®, companies can define multiple levels of pay, use percentages or fixed amounts for each payout, set different payouts for different products, set different payouts for different countries, and set different payouts for different sales ranks (promotional titles).

Firestorm® also allows compression to be easily configured and even a Multilevel Check Matching Bonus that pays on multiple levels.

For your MLM Software requirements to support your distributors, the Firestorm® web office login area is loaded with Multilevel reports and tools, such as multiple Graphical Tree View Genealogy reports, spotlight boxes, tabular genealogy reports that allow searching and sorting, front-line activity reports, dashboard reports with speedometer gauges that can be configured to show Multilevel structure related data, and you can even offer a Multilevel Structure Move Tool that allows distributors to move someone who enrolled on their front line to another level (while separately maintaining the appropriate sponsor relationship).

For your MLM Software customer service requirements, Firestorm® is loaded with tools for your administrative staff to manage and support every aspect of your Multilevel model. Need to make structure moves because someone got put in the wrong place or wants to move under someone else? No problem. Firestorm® provides two different structure move tools for your staff to perform individual moves or entire down-line moves very simple and very fast. In the admin side, Customer Service reps can view individual Multilevel down-lines, generate Multilevel commissions at any time for any date range, view Multilevel commission payouts in each order, in each commission check, and in multiple corporate reports.

These features and literally hundreds of others are all available for you to configure and get your Multilevel system up and running quickly and efficiently!

The following is a breakdown of configurable features and capabilities related to the Multilevel compensation plan that are a standard part of the Firestorm® MLM Software System.

Multilevel-Specific Features of the Firestorm® System

Multiple Genealogy Structure Types – For a Multilevel compensation plan, Firestorm® includes completely separate Sponsorship, Enroll and Binary genealogy structures (genealogy trees).

Separate Genealogy Tracking – Distributors can track their sponsorship’s or enrollments separately from a Multilevel or Binary Tree (or both), and allows you to configure your own commissions specifically in each structure.

Sales Ranks (Promotional Titles)

  • Multiple Ranks – For your MLM Software compensation plan, Firestorm® provides multiple sales ranks (promotional titles) for your distributors.
  • Specific Rules and Qualifications – Each sales rank can have specific promotional advancement rules and commissions qualifications (what they need to accomplish to promote or qualify for a commission).
  • Included with Pricing – All of our Firestorm® pricing packages include the development of your compensation plan sales rank promotional rules and qualifications.
  • One Efficient Process – We have one efficient process that promotes, demotes, qualifies, un-qualifies, activates and deactivates your distributors.
  • Separate Pay and Lifetime Sales Ranks – Firestorm® also tracks their pay rank (for commission purposes), their minimum sales rank (a level they will never fall below), and a separate lifetime rank (their highest achieved sales rank). This provides the utmost flexibility for tracking and presentation of your distributor achievements.

Multiple Multilevel Genealogy Reports

  • Different Types – There are several different types of genealogy reports to present to your distributors in their web office login area for tracking and managing their Multilevel down-line.

Web Office Login Area Multilevel Reports & Tools

Web Office Tool – Multilevel Tree View

The Multilevel Tree View Report provides a graphical view for distributors to view their downline in an indented level format. Each person in each level can be expanded. The level below them will indent and list all persons on that level under that person. The color coding of each person’s qualification status and separate colors for each level make this report a nice addition to your web office tools.

  • Placement or Sponsorship – Distributors can pull their sponsorship or placement genealogy report and see a graphical view of the selected tree.
  • View Multiple Positions – If your compensation plan offers multiple structure positions (dealerships), they are also presented for selection.

  • Color Coded Levels – Each level can be configured as a different color and when expanded or collapsed, all of the positions in that level will display the same color.
  • Spotlight Report – Double clicking on any person in their tree will display a detailed spotlight box showing important details about that person. Corporate staff can configure the details from admin screens that will be displayed in the spotlight box.
