Companies today face a number of challenges as they seek to continually drive the performance of their sales talent, including aligning business objectives with sales compensation, increasing sales productivity during tough competition, and providing sales operations and sales management leaders with visibility of resources. To help them overcome these obstacles, Optymyze works with Cornerstone to provide companies with the ability to link their people and performance strategies, and ensure more positive sales outcomes.
