About the Company:

Empowering Companies to Incent Right

The core purpose of Xactly is to empower companies of all sizes to incent right. For years great business leaders have recognized that sales compensation is one of the prime motivators for a company’s success. The right plans can increase profits, control expenses and drive consistent quarter-over-quarter results.

Unfortunately, due to the high costs associated with automating sales compensation, only the world’s largest sales organizations have been able to realize the benefits. For the vast majority of companies the cost to acquire traditional enterprise applications is impractical. These offerings are characterized by large up-front software license and maintenance fees, costly hardware, unpredictable implementations and complex upgrades.

As a result, most companies continue to limp along, stuck in the paradigm of complex, homegrown spreadsheet-based sales compensation programs. These companies tend to either simplify or unnecessarily complicate sales compensation resulting in lost motivation, lack of understanding and individual results that may not be in concert with corporate objectives.

Xactly Corporation was created to meet the needs of the broader market by providing the most affordable on-demand sales compensation solution allowing companies to improve their business performance through the use of more effective sales compensation programs. Xactly enables companies to easily and affordably design, implement, manage, audit and communicate sales compensation programs. By providing more effective plans and better visibility, these companies can dramatically improve sales performance.

O.K., full disclosure, Andy Zoltners was a professor of mine at Northwestern. Sure, I still like the guy. But these are great books. I wish that I had them when I was a sales manager!
