Built natively on's , Xactly Incent Express extends the value of a company's investment in Salesforce CRM by enabling them to rapidly create sales compensation plans, calculate commissions, and export payments to payroll, all from a single, easy-to-use application. As a completely self-service solution, Xactly Incent Express can be deployed entirely on-line by a non-technical user in a matter of hours - no professional services required.


While real-time visibility into compensation and commission management is key to driving sales results, most companies today are still burdened with managing the sales compensation process in spreadsheets - costing them valuable time and limiting real-time visibility into sales performance.

"Xactly first revolutionized the sales compensation space five years ago when we pioneered the world's first on-demand compensation solution which replaced inflexible and expensive on-premise solutions," said Christopher Cabrera, CEO of Xactly Corporation. "Now, with Xactly Incent Express, even the smallest businesses can afford an automated compensation solution - eliminating human error and providing access to performance data."

"With real-time sales performance and insight, rapid set-up and best practices for compensation design strategy, SMBs can accelerate growth, modify and incentivize behavior and make more informed business decisions," added Liz Cobb, General Manager, Small and Medium Business Solutions, Xactly Corporation.

"We are very happy that Xactly has made Incentive Compensation Management accessible to businesses of all sizes. The integration with Salesforce CRM gave us instant access to our company information so the implementation was really simple. The step-by-step guidance made setting up our comp plans easy just as TurboTax simplifies tax preparation. We are excited to have such a powerful sales performance management system at this stage of our business," said Tien Tzuo, CEO, Zuora, Inc.

"InsideView has experienced a tremendous amount of growth in the past year and our manual, excel based commissions process, was not scaling. With Xactly Incent Express, we quickly automated a very time and labor intensive process and have given visibility and predictability to our changing commission process," said Greg Volm, Director of Corporate Sales at InsideView.

"Xactly Incent Express for Salesforce CRM Enterprise Edition finally gave me the reason to upgrade from Professional Edition. Getting my reps and plans set up was a breeze," said Ann McLaughlin, Director of Operations at Outcome Resources, an early beta customer of the service.
