Gartner Positions Xactly in the Leaders Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Sales Performance Management
San Jose, Calif. – September 9, 2013 – Xactly® today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Sales Performance Management (SPM).1 Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Gartner notes that “sales performance management (SPM) encompasses operational and analytical functions to automate and integrate processes for planning, designing, allocating and managing sales compensation, sales processes, territories, quotas and behavioral/training plans.” The report adds that “SPM solutions seek to improve the structure, focus and motivation of salespeople and channels to achieve targets for revenue and margin production” and “provide modeling and analytic capabilities for businesses to evaluate sales assumptions and diagnose trends in sales outcomes.” The report also notes that “sales incentive compensation management (ICM) applications usually represent the foundation for SPM solutions, automating functions for calculating and reporting on commissions and associated variable compensation methods for sales channels (internal and external to the business).”
This report is Gartner’s first ever Magic Quadrant analyzing the SPM Market. In 2012, Xactly received a “Positive” rating in Gartner’s MarketScope for Sales Performance Management.2
