What do Steph Curry and Xactly have in Common?

3 min read

On November 7th, the Golden State Warrior’s Steph Curry broke his own league record dropping 13 3-point shots in one game. Last week, Xactly nailed our own “field goal” with three consecutive award wins. We started off the week with customer National Instruments being named a winner in the Sales Excellence category of the 2016 Ventana Research Leadership Awards. The awards recognize leaders and pioneers who have contributed to their organizations’ successes and are delivering tangible business value to both people and processes through the innovative use of technology. Leveraging Xactly’s sales performance management suite, including Xactly Analytics™ and Xactly Insights™, National Instruments has transformed its incentive compensation program from a manual-based process to one that applies data intelligence to all aspects of its planning and quota setting. Learn more about their success story here. This accolade was quickly followed with Xactly being recognized for our continued innovation in Sales Performance Management in the 2016 Best in Biz Awards. Xactly’s Incent Product Suite, including our ground-breaking big data intelligence platform, Insights, earned the Silver Distinction in the Enterprise Product of the Year category. These awards recognize top companies, teams, executives and products for their business success as judged by established members of the press and industry analysts. To round out the trifecta, on Thursday night our CFO, Joe Consul was honored as a CFO of the Year by the Silicon Valley Business Journal (SVBJ). We personally can’t think of anyone more deserving than the leader who helped the company successfully navigate our IPO and then deliver five consecutive quarters of accelerated growth thereafter. Last week was one we’ll never forget at Xactly. As Warriors fans, we always love a buzzer-beating three-pointer to win the game. In the case of our wins last week, a slam dunk will also do just fine!
