The Benefits of Incentives
Quickly Design and Deploy Incentive Programs
Enable your sales leaders and compensation professionals to manage and execute incentive compensation programs to produce optimal selling behaviors across all selling channels. Influence desired selling behaviors with commission programs, bonus plans, SPIFFs and other incentive programs. Impact selling decisions at the time of sale by providing real-time commission estimations to sellers. Scale sophisticated incentive programs with comprehensive plan rules, matrixed sales crediting arrangements and hierarchical relationships across regions and channels.
Flawlessly Execute Optimal Promotional Campaigns
Enable marketing and promotions managers to design, execute, and measure promotional campaigns across sales channels. Define promotional programs using strategies such as flat amount, tiered, volume-based, and revenue-based. Identify the most effective promotions by analyzing programs using A/B testing, and make on-the-fly adjustments to optimize the yield on each campaign.
Manage Rebates with Flexibility and Speed
Streamline rebate management, simplify processing, and recommend rebate programs – all while mitigating revenue leakage. Administer complex rebate programs with ease including setting-up eligibility and benefits in one central location. Create, update, or amend fixed amount or tiered rebates, based on revenue, volume or performance.

Preparing Incentive Programs for the New Revenue Recognition Standards
