Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) Support & Managed Services

 

OS Edge for Sales Performance Management

OpenSymmetry branded our Managed Services offerings as “OS Edge”.  We believe our services give clients a valuable Edge on how to realize the most benefit possible from an SPM investment.

The “go-live” of a Sales Performance Management (SPM) solution is not the end of an implementation project, with sales leaders and reps riding off into the sunset with accurate, up-to-date sales compensation data. It is the beginning of learning to manage the post-implementation operations of the SPM solution, which has its own set of obstacles and challenges.

The OS Edge Team at OpenSymmetry is your worldwide, trusted SPM partner to help navigate these obstacles and challenges and to ensure the success of a new SPM implementation company wide.

We offer flexible, configurable support models tailored to specific business needs

“Sunrun maximized the value of our incentive compensation system, and we were able to increase overall sales volume of solar panels and batteries. We’re now able to better serve both our employees and our customers. The efficiencies generated from this new ICM system have led to an increase in deployment of solar across the United States.”

“OpenSymmetry rose to the challenge of creating a roadmap for an efficient, centralized ICM system for us. We started off with over 100 incentive plans throughout the bank in different lines of business, meaning the incentive administration was decentralized. With the help of OpenSymmetry, we have improved efficiencies by streamlining our incentive compensation administration to a single system.”

“Working with OpenSymmetry, we experienced openness, flexibility, and total commitment to our success from UK team. I was surprised that instead of coming up with solutions to fix our problems only, they were always looking for ways to simplify, streamline, and improve our processes in the same time. Due to that kind of commitment, we went from having over 100 configuration rules to just 27.”

“OpenSymmetry helped automate our data feeds and update our configuration of Xactly Incent, and these improvements helped us save approximately 7,200 hours per year by eliminating manual calculations, minimizing adjustments, and building trust in the data to reduce shadow accounting. When we got this working right, we reduced what took days to 3.5 hours. Time savings have been so key for us.”
