Solution Deployment Focus Areas

Implementation

OpenSymmetry has a thorough assessment to evaluate the readiness of your organization to migrate to a new SPM platform, from defining the future state through developing an implementation plan that includes evaluating existing technology, processes, and resources related to the incentive compensation process. Defined scope and risk planning are used to create a roadmap for implementation containing dependencies, risks, and data and resource needs.

Testing

Building an ICM system is a huge investment and having a systematic testing strategy is crucial to make sure the system is configured correctly and fail proof. Our testing experts are focused on minimizing costly defects and risks with system integration testing (SIT), user acceptance testing (UAT), functional testing, and the application of industry best practices.

Through our comprehensive training plans, whether web-based or live, users gain the skills necessary to run the system efficiently and effectively. This includes everything from understanding the basics of the software to customized process training for administrators and end users.

“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.”
