Aviso and Xactly Partner to Maximize Sales Performance with Incentive Compensation and AI-Powered Forecasting

Leaders in sales forecasting and incentive planning combine powers to help sales teams prioritize deals and improve compensation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) -  Aviso, the leader in AI-powered sales forecasting and visibility, and Xactly (NYSE: XTLY), a leading provider of cloud-based incentive solutions, today announced a partnership to integrate their flagship technologies. The partnership enables companies to improve sales performance by combining Xactly's incentive estimator with Aviso's AI-powered forecasting and sales visibility platform.

A well aligned combination, Aviso shows reps their ability to hit their number by highlighting which deals are most likely to close this quarter, while Xactly calculates and shows reps the potential incentive compensation they can earn from the deals in their forecast. The integration, leveraging Xactly Connect API's, will be demonstrated today during Compcloud 2017, where sales performance management experts come to interact, inform, and inspire.

Michael Lock, CEO of Aviso, commented: "Partnering with Xactly is a step in the right direction because it combines incentives insights with forecasting and sales visibility. It aligns the sales management process with the sales incentive process, for best results. We look forward to the innovations we can bring to the sales process together, and to the improved results that we anticipate for our joint customers."
