SAN JOSE, Calif. – February 11, 2014 – Recognizing its leadership in incentive compensation and winning long-term strategy, Xactly® has been named an Elite winner of the 2014 CRM Watchlist.

With thousands of vendors in the CRM market ecosystem, businesses have numerous choices when determining their technology partners. In his annual CRM Watchlist, noted CRM analyst and blogger Paul Greenberg leverages his decades of experience to distinguish the most relevant and strategic vendors as industry leaders, now and in the future. Greenberg announced the 26 vendor winners on his blog, Social CRM: The Conversation. He acknowledged just five vendors as the 2014 CRM Watchlist Elite – salesforce.com, Microsoft, Blackbaud, InfusionSoft and Xactly – noting those companies that have the strongest impact and greatest likelihood of success in the marketplace.

Xactly, named a CRM Watchlist Elite specialist for its outstanding position in both the incentive compensation and sales performance management market, was also pinpointed by the award for its focus, innovation, strong management team and customer-centric culture; all these were given as reasons for Xactly’s projected longevity and success.

“Xactly is a smart company. They are focused, innovative, well-rounded and well prepared as a company to achieve ongoing growth and increasing impact in the compensation market and in a part of the sales market,” said Paul Greenberg, author of CRM at the Speed of Light, 4th Edition. “But what makes it stand out more than almost anything is that it has a culture to be incredibly proud of. Xactly’s core values are well engrained in its culture, and the company harnesses its mission to ‘inspire performance’ by amply rewarding its employees for their contributions.”

“I have great respect for Paul Greenberg and the CRM Watchlist Awards, which offer keen insight into the top CRM vendors every year,” said Scott Broomfield, chief marketing officer and SVP for Xactly Corporation. “We are honored to be named to the CRM Watchlist for the second year in a row, and thrilled to be recognized as a CRM Watchlist Elite 2014 winner. Paul is a visionary in CRM and enterprise technology, and his evaluation of the industry is an important benchmark for any company looking to take a more strategic approach to sales and the customer experience.

Greenberg noted that key to Xactly’s success is its unrelenting dedication to its core values: customer focus, accountability, respect and excellence (C.A.R.E.). Championed by Xactly founder, president and CEO Christopher W. Cabrera, these values are instilled into employees from the day they start and woven deeply into the company DNA as tenets to live by. Xactly demonstrates this dedication in many ways, including through its non-profit arm, XactlyOne, which donates money and volunteer time to a wide range of causes and charities in Xactly’s community and around the world.
