OpenSymmetry, a leading implementer of sales performance management (SPM) solutions, is a longtime Xactly partner and proud Premier Sponsor of Xactly Unleashed 2019. Serving over 1,100 clients around the globe in their 15-year history, OpenSymmetry has enabled organizations, ranging in size and industry, to achieve greater operational efficiency and get better sales results.

OpenSymmetry’s mission statement captures its high standards for excellence:

Through our focus on customer success, commitment to accountability, and by staying at the leading edge of the industry, our mission is to:

  • Empower an unstoppable workforce
  • Create transformation using global experience
  • Elevate what’s possible with innovative solutions

At Xactly Unleashed, OpenSymmetry will share a live case study with The Knot Worldwide at 3 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, June 12 (view the full event agenda here). Together, they will present how they successfully converted The Knot Worldwide’s data management solution from Delta to Xactly Connect, with direct integration to SFDC, while streamlining the entire SPM process along the way.

This presentation will provide details on planning, execution, and testing to ensure session attendees have an opportunity to see firsthand what goes into this transition and ask questions. In addition to the migration over to Connect, the OpenSymmetry team will share how they took advantage of the project time to also redesign the plans inside Xactly Incent to allow for easier management of plan changes. They will share industry best practices around plan component redesign for Xactly Incent, data strategy and planning, test strategy and execution, and knowledge transition for the team.

OpenSymmetry is also sponsoring the breakfast on Wednesday morning of Xactly Unleashed and hosting a booth in the exhibition area, providing a chance for Unleashed attendees to network with OpenSymmetry’s consultants and thought leaders, including Anne Cantey, VP of Professional Services.

Here are some thoughts from a recent Q&A with Cantey:

What led OpenSymmetry to partner with Xactly?

[AC]: As a [six-time] leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SPM, Xactly is known for providing excellent incentive compensation solutions to truly drive and shape sales performance. With OpenSymmetry’s expertise and longtime impact in the SPM industry, it only made sense for our two organizations to partner to best serve our customers.

How do you see sales performance management transforming businesses? 

[AC]: Sales performance management allows organizations to accurately assess their sales teams’ behaviors and provides clear insights to guide decision making that will ensure the direction of their businesses are aligned to their strategic visions.  

Why is OpenSymmetry sponsoring Xactly Unleashed?

[AC]: Xactly Unleashed is a great avenue for us to support our partner and share our stories of success with a broader audience. We’re excited to present a live case study and host a booth to share information and network. 

What are you looking forward to most at Xactly Unleashed?

[AC]: I’m excited to connect with our current clients and learn from others in the industry, as there will be thought leaders and game changers at Xactly Unleashed. We’re going to bring our best to the table and look forward to being challenged and inspired by others as well.
