Consulting Firm Revises Commission Plan Without Adding Overhead, Xactly Announced Today
SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
When Canadian Salesforce.com consultancy BigKite increased its sales staff from one person to five, co-founders Rohan Verma and Harpreet Aujla knew it was time to revamp its young company’s sales incentive structure.
BigKite’s founders wanted to add incentives to their compensation mix. But the biggest challenge was that they wanted to measure salespeople’s progress quarterly and pay them monthly — complicated enough on its own, but even more so because projects can take months to complete and it’s often unclear how much commission to pay on each invoice.
The partners knew they needed an incentive commission solution that would better motivate their employees and align those employees with the goals of the business. Because they had previously connected one of their clients with Xactly for sales performance management, they decided to look into it for their own business.
“We want to be fair to our sales reps, as well as make sure that they have the right incentives to be able to maximize their selling ability,” Verma said. “The primary objective was to make sure that we have very little administrative overhead with designing the commission plans, calculating the commissions, and paying out commissions. This would’ve been a pretty significant headache to set up.”
“Growing businesses like BigKite want to capitalize on the competitive edge delivered through a well-incentivized sales force, but managing sales compensation on spreadsheets can become a manual, time-consuming process,” said Scott Broomfield, general manager for Express. “Xactly Express will help BigKite better motivate its employees though customized incentives – and with little impact on its administrative team.”
Xactly is the leader in on-demand incentive compensation and sales performance management. Xactly Express is the industry’s first comprehensive incentive and sales compensation solution designed specifically for emerging and fast-growing businesses.
BigKite implements Salesforce.com across Canada and in parts of the Northeastern United States. Verma and Aujla started the company in 2010 with just the two of them, and grew the staff to more than 20 in less than two years.
