Cogent Technology Group, Inc. announced today that YEP Energy has engaged Cogent to implement YEP Energy's utilization of Cogent's Sales Commission Manager software service to support its growth of natural gas sales in California and other states. Their SCMOnline solution provides a means of managing the residual sales commissions that flow as ongoing streams of compensation to their independent brokers and sales agents.

"We find Cogent's Sales Commission Manager service to be a flexible, cost-effective and robust solution that can accommodate our many needs, and we look forward to continued utilization of the service as our company expands into new markets," said Mark Perrotti, Senior VP of the Retail Marketing Division of YEP Energy.

From their base in Houston, Texas, YEP Energy serves residential and commercial customers in energy markets across the country. The company's Retail Marketing Division wanted a turn-key approach to accurately calculating and recording commission amounts that are payable to their brokers and sales agents and are based on the customer's energy usage over time. With Cogent's SCMOnline software service, YEP Energy expects to proactively manage the variability of the commission compensation function.

Cogent's SCMOnline solution is available as a software service hosted in their Atlanta data center. The full-featured service, which offers a wide range of capabilities and an easy-to-use interface, periodically consumes updates of the energy marketer's CIS/Billing data and calculates commissions as the underlying energy-usage changes.

SCMOnline manages the commission function regardless of the frequency of commissioning events or the complexity of the commission methods.
