Incentive Compensation Management

Define incentives strategies, automate calculation, and monitor performance to drive sales execution

What are sales compensation inefficiencies costing you?

For rewards and incentive plans to effectively motivate sales people and influence sales behaviors aligned with corporate goals, timing is critical. But many CSPs still rely on spreadsheet-based manual processes which prevent them from being as timely as they should. Because some of these metrics are calculated manually, it is common to leave out some parts of the sales hierarchy or do not cover all the services, as they should. Operators should radically rethink the structure and processes of incentives management to drive better performance. Watch the video and understand how much you may be losing for not taking appropriate measures for tackling these challenges.

Great data in, great compensation plans out

Accessing high quality data is the first step to enabling accurate incentive payouts. Moreover, incentive compensation plans require access to granular, timely, and specific telecom data.
RAID Incentives was designed from scratch for telecommunication operators and is ready to collect, transform, validate and tag transactional data from any BSS/OSS component in real-time. RAID Incentives’ drag-and-drop graphical UI makes it easy to develop and deploy data integration. It also embeds data quality across the platform (end-to-end profiling, cleansing, matching, and monitoring capabilities) which enable you to identify anomalies, standardize data, resolve duplicates, and monitor data quality over time.

The flexibility you need to create amazing incentive compensation plans

RAID Incentives is designed to support any combination of pay components, rules, calculations, aggregations, and sequencing that might be required to align sales with your company’s business goals. With clicks, not code, you can easily configure and maintain the most complex and varied incentive compensation plans.

Significantly reduce the total cost of disputes

RAID’s Case Management enables the configuration of specific workflows, escalation and assignment rules for each dispute type. Users can easily setup and maintain custom approval hierarchies, groups, email notifications, status, escalation, file attachments, and other custom functions. Managing workflows online allows integrating the incentives processes with overall auditing and reporting, and allows Sarbanes-Oxley compliance to be easily manageable. It is a great tool to automate dispute tickets handling and improve the incentive compensation process efficiency, while empowering analysts, sales people and dealers.

Decision makers need at-a-glance visibility of meaningful data and trends and that’s why RAID Incentives comes with out-of-the-box reports that can also be emailed via notification or downloaded to a desired format, including Excel and PDF. This removes manual, time-consuming efforts to develop critical reports. Nevertheless users can customize these reports or create additional ones through a drag-and-drop interface. Ad hoc queries can be saved, modified, and copied to promote easier period-over-period comparison. Thresholds and alerts generation can also be configured for any KPI, making it easier for you to monitor sales performance in real-time and quickly act on data.

Unscrupulous dealers can sometimes directly exploit flaws in your agreement for their own benefit through the inflation of sales volumes to claim fraudulent commissions. Quickly analyzing dealer performance based on simple margin calculations rather than just the number of sales achieved, provides and example of how RAID Incentives can be used to tackle dealer fraud.
