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.

Financial consolidation systems are the ‘engine room’ of the corporate finance department, enabling companies of all sizes to comply with regulatory reporting requirements, company law and global accounting standards as well satisfy management’s need for periodic management reporting. But all is not well with standalone consolidations applications that were developed in the 1990’s and which are still commonplace in some of the world’s largest multinationals. According to one recent report, 47 percent of companies have made substantial investments in the last year in their financial close, filing, and reporting. Yet, despite the considerable sums of money invested in the process, management teams across the globe remain dissatisfied with the quality and timeliness of management information.

For most large organizations, sales planning is a siloed process. Organizations typically need to analyze multiple years’ worth of data to prepare for planning. There is an even split between organizations that lead the planning process from the top down and those that lead it from the bottom up. Most sales organizations complete the planning process before the beginning of the fiscal year.

FP&A is a crucial component of the CFO’s job, but it is often frustratingly ineffective. As a result, many organisations use the data produced by finance only for compliance; their strategic decision making remains uninfluenced by it. However, the emergence of sophisticated software solutions has created new opportunities for CFOs to turn FP&A into the strategic exercise it ought to be.

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.
