Gartner notes that “SPM provides value from an end-user (sales representative/agent/payee) as well as an internal perspective, to improve sales execution and operational efficiency.” The firm also notes the benefits of SPM include: reduced overpayment/underpayment, saving organizations 3% to 5% in compensation expense; increased scalability and performance through automation; increased sales representative (rep) performance by aligning compensation with corporate goals and objectives; faster data-driven analytics, shortening the time to decisions and actions; optimization of business processes and compensation plan design; and increased revenue/profitability growth through compensation plan design that is based on historical results.

Gartner also predicts that “By 2020, 30% of organizations using a sales performance management solution will optimize the design and maintenance of their sales compensation plans using advanced analytics solutions provided by their SPM vendor.”
