"It is extremely important to the success of the sales team to approve and deliver sales plans on time," said Laura Provenza.

Plan Communicator streamlines our plan approval and distribution processes so plan rollout and sales execution are in sync and aligned with corporate objectives."

"Commissions Manager allows sales reps to easily access up-to-date information on their performance. With this new solution, the sales force can manage their commissions as part of their daily routine. This increases transparency and confidence in the system, reduces shadow accounting and saves precious selling time," concluded Leslie Stretch.
