Unlike solutions solely-focused on sales planning, or those that only provide sales analytics, Adaptive uniquely delivers a complete solution for managing both.

"Adaptive Revenue will help us to align the sales and finance functions of the business so that we can collaborate and make more informed, data-driven decisions for the entire business," said Jon Corbett, Vice President of Finance at Teachscape. "It will allow us to optimize resources to drive revenue, and look at multiple driver-based sales forecast scenarios along with the Adaptive Planning product that I've used for years in finance."

"The Adaptive Revenue solution is well-suited for the complete revenue lifecycle, from setting integrated corporate revenue goals to establishing sales quotas, meeting services demand, and creating financial plans," said Paul Turner, Vice President of Product Marketing at Adaptive Insights. "It uniquely links sales, services, and finance data with dashboards, planning and reporting, bringing together data and planning for a holistic, strategic view of the business."

Collaborative sales quota setting and approval is now available, using powerful top-down and bottom-up methods to assign quotas, which can be modeled based on actuals, opportunity, and account penetration. Adaptive Revenue offers the ability to plan headcount to meet revenue goals across sales and service teams. And it lowers risk by comparing sales forecast scenarios using a variety of business drivers.
