Xactly Corporation, the leader in on-demand sales compensation and sales performance management (SPM), today announced that KPI Analytics Inc., a demand generation and telesales leader, has selected Xactly Express to automate sales commission management and improve visibility for its growing sales team.
Founded in 2008, KPI Analytics delivers integrated business to business (B2B) sales and marketing support programs by leveraging world class tele-sales services, interactive marketing programs, sophisticated campaign and lead management technology. As the company grew, so did the complexity of its sales compensation initiatives – which recognizes both the lead and the quality of the lead. Tracked on spreadsheets, sales compensation was becoming unruly and time consuming to manage and could sometimes lead to sales rep being paid twice. In addition, the processes provided no real visibility to the sales team or leadership in terms of real-time sales performance.
“KPI Analytics is a firm believer that all leads are not created equal,” said Dowd McDonald, vice president of operations, KPI Analytics Inc. “Though managed on spreadsheets, it was hard to track and pay reps for the initial lead and then when the lead was validated as a strong prospect for customers. Xactly was exactly what we needed to alleviate this issue. Now we are able to incent reps to get higher quality leads for their customers’ right out of the gate. We are freeing up the hours it took management to calculate comp, enabling us to focus on what really will drive our business forward. With Xactly Express, we can now view sales compensation as a strategic differentiator.”
KPI Analytics is in the process of rolling out Xactly Express to half of its 60-person sales team and expects to be fully up and running within the next month. By managing sales comp with Xactly Express, KPI Analytics forecasts it will cut down the time spent calculating compensation and reduce payment disputes and inaccuracies. The company is also in the process of updating its sales comp structure, and will be able to weigh compensation based on results, incenting its sales team to hone its focus on the most profitable leads for their clients.
“With real-time visibility into payouts and the opportunity to earn larger incentives for driving the most profitable leads for our clients, we expect Xactly Express will help our team keep up its reputation as the most voracious and successful in the demand gen industry,” added McDonald.
“Effective sales compensation can help companies of all sizes sell more and compete better in the marketplace. By choosing Xactly as the backbone of their sales compensation initiatives, companies like KPI Analytics can incent sales and lead generation reps to perform in line with corporate objectives – improving results, productivity and morale,” said Chris Newton, vice president of marketing, Xactly Corporation.
