Many sales organizations continue to operate as they have for years: At headquarters, executives work with sales leaders to set revenue targets for the year. Sales teams receive top-down goals, which cascade across product lines, channels and other business dimensions. The end result is an account-level target, which is assigned to a sales rep. Because most companies do not have an easy way to complete this process—nor do they use a common system of record—they must resort to the quickest and easiest mechanism at hand: spreadsheets, a nonscalable, single-dimensional solution that does not handle complete data sets. This approach also poses challenges across key sales management functions, including planning, execution and optimization.

Optimizing incentive compensation: aligning what you say with how you pay CSO Insights’ ICPM study* found that 69 percent of organizations use three or more metrics to build their sales compensation plans, but modeling and planning this sales strategy can quickly become too complex as a spreadsheet-driven exercise. It is crucial to get these incentive compensation structures right, because sales reps receive up to 60 percent of their income from incentive comp. In this white paper, we discuss the disconnect between sales behavior and incentive compensation structure and provide recommended steps towards optimizing your compensation plan.

"The pressure on sales to meet and exceed ever-increasing revenue targets is higher than ever before. At the heart of this challenge lies a complex analytical and modeling problem that involves data spread across many rigid–and usually disconnected–systems, teams, and geographies. Leading companies handle this problem by focusing first on creating a sales performance plan that is data-driven and tied to business objectives. The research report conducted by Harvard Business Review provides you with how today's sales executives: • Overcome technology weaknesses to uncover sophisticated analytics • Change ingrained, cultural tendances of sales organizations • Adopt dynamic practices to respond to change quicker"

As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study. At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.
