Introducing Optymyze Sales Planning for Enterprise Sales Modeling and Planning That Is Collaborative and Highly Scalable

Optymyze Sales Planning Expands the Capabilities of Optymyze Sales Operations, a Platform That Also Includes Sales Performance Management, Data and Analytics, and Application Development

CHESTER, PA--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2016) - Optymyze, a worldwide provider of enterprise cloud applications and services for improving sales and channel performance, today announced the launch of Optymyze Sales Planning, which enables business users to build enterprise models and use them to perform collaborative sales planning. It is a one of five key components of Optymyze Sales Operations, a platform that also includes Optymyze Sales Compensation, Optymyze Sales Performance, Optymyze Sales Analytics, and Optymyze Sales Studio.

"Sales planning is essential to step forward to excellence and most organizations are held back using spreadsheets, where almost half (45%) admit they make it difficult to manage the process," said Mark Smith, CEO and chief research officer at Ventana Research. "Optymyze has advanced its portfolio to address the need to plan and understand the scenarios and path to achieving optimal performance."

"As sales performance management experts with keen insight that comes from managing sales operations for our clients, we have created a robust set of integrated capabilities for managing all aspects of sales and sales operations," said E.K. Koh, vice president of Products for Optymyze. "Our newest offering, Optymyze Sales Planning, extends our capabilities to include a comprehensive solution that enables a more collaborative, flexible approach to continuously improving sales planning and driving sales performance."

Developed as a result of the singular focus that Optymyze has on improving sales force effectiveness and sales operations productivity, Optymyze Sales Planning is fully integrated into Optymyze Sales Operations, the company's industry-leading platform for managing all aspects of sales operations, from sales compensation management to territory, quota, and objective management; sales data and analytics; sales application development and deployment -- and now sales planning, forecasting, and budgeting.

Key business outcomes of using Optymyze Sales Planning include:

  • Easy data collection: Optymyze Sales Planning enables business users to quickly define the data requirements needed for sales planning and to easily gather data from hundreds or tens of thousands of sources to accelerate the entire planning process.
  • Role-based security: Optymyze Sales Planning ensures that companies are able to leverage institutional knowledge by securely sharing all or only specific components of the plan model or specific parts of the plan data.
  • Adaptability: Optymyze Sales Planning provides a complete set of modeling and planning capabilities to easily handle the many different sales planning needs, including sales workforce budgets and sales revenue forecasts.
  • Collaboration: Optymyze Sales Planning allows sales leaders and managers to have informed, real-time discussions to improve collaboration and to create better visibility into decision making.
  • Integration: Optymyze Sales Planning enables companies to easily integrate details of sales compensation, territory, and quota planning with sales budgeting and forecasting to provide a real-time view into all aspects of managing the sales organization.

Unlike other planning solutions that offer generic modeling capabilities, Optymyze Sales Planning is specifically designed for managing the unique needs of sales organizations. 

With tight integration between Optymyze Sales Planning and Optymyze Sales Compensation, Optymyze Sales Performance, Optymyze Sales Analytics, and Optymyze Sales Studio, Optymyze has created a next-generation platform that can manage the volume, variety, and velocity of real-time data needed for comprehensive, enterprise planning, while also supporting large-scale, distributed data processing to run faster analytics. The result is a robust platform to turn sales planning into a driver of successful strategy execution.
