Vorsight Selects Xactly to Improve Sales Visibility and Performance
Sales Training and Coaching Consultancy to Automate Sales Compensation with Xactly Express
SAN JOSE, CA – August 22, 2011 – Xactly Corporation, the leader in on-demand sales compensation and sales performance management (SPM), today announced that Vorsight, a leading provider of B2B sales training and consulting, has selected Xactly Express to automate compensation and better incent and motivate its sales team. Vorsight specializes in making the first half of the sales cycle more successful by helping its clients generate new opportunities with qualified decision makers.
Over the past several years, Vorsight has seen significant growth in its business, as more organizations look to improve their sales processes and results. As Vorsight expanded its own sales team to support its growth, it quickly realized it needed to streamline operations in its sales department to save valuable time and increase sales potential. For starters, Vorsight was managing sales compensation on spreadsheets and over email, a manual, time-intensive process that provided no real visibility to management or the sales team. This lack of visibility was also causing payment questions from sales reps, who often engaged in shadow accounting to track what they had been paid on and what they were still owed. When Vorsight discovered Xactly at the American Association of Inside Sales Professionals annual meeting, the company realized Xactly Express could shift the strain of managing commissions internally, while simultaneously giving the sales team the visibility they needed to change behaviors in real-time and improve results.
“As experts in sales best practices, Vorsight knows the criticality of an aligned and properly motivated sales team. Xactly Express was the ideal solution to help us meet that objective quickly and cost effectively,” said Steve Richard, co-founder and chief content officer at Vorsight.
Vorsight is in the process of rolling out Xactly Express to its six-person sales team responsible for training services. With Xactly Express, Vorsight hopes to significantly reduce the complexity of calculating comp, while also providing the sales team instant visibility into their sales performance. With features like the Express Incentive Estimator, the Vorsight sales team will be able to quickly model which services package will deliver the best sales outcome and adjust their behavior to maximize their sales potential. Through tight integration with salesforce.com CRM, the sales team will also be able to access their Xactly Express compensation goal attainment and earnings data directly from their familiar salesforce.com interface – shaving down adoption time and providing one, central location for all their critical sales data.
“Our company is laser focused on helping sales teams be more successful, and our proven track record helping customers source and close deals has led to significant business growth. We realized that Xactly could help us manage our internal sales operations, so our reps could hone their energy on providing the best services to grow our customers’ businesses,” added Richard. “Xactly Express will help us handle the complexity associated with our expanding sales force, as well as enable sales team and management to gain the real-time visibility and tools they need to modify sales behaviors. With Xactly they can spend less time tracking how they are being paid – and more time selling.”
