LOWELL, Mass., April 7, 2008: Centive, the award-winning leader in on-demand solutions for sales compensation and sales performance management, today announced the Spring 2008 release of Centive’s flagship solution, Compel.  The Spring 2008 release marks the seventh major release of Compel, the industry’s most complete and mature on-demand solution for automating sales compensation.

The Spring 2008 release of Compel adds powerful new enhancements to support the design, modeling, managing, reporting and analysis of effective, optimized sales compensation programs.  Key new enhancements include:

  • Adjustment Analysis – provides users with a powerful tool for researching, analyzing and viewing the impact of prior period adjustments, such as drill down into adjusted transactions and before and after results detail
  • Enhanced Dashboards – provides customers additional options for customization and control over how dashboard content and data are configured for sales representatives and managers
  • New Administrative Privileges – enhancements to "super administrator" privileges to provide additional controls for managing user access and security profiles, and for providing administrators with mirrored executive dashboard views
  • Enhanced Performance Analytics –  includes options for customization to transaction-level analysis on earnings and performance data and for display options on performance ranking

Originally released in May 2005 as the first on-demand system for managing sales compensation, Compel continues to be the only solution to offer a complete on-demand platform for sales performance management.  In addition to calculating commission and bonus earnings, the Compel platform includes native support for modeling, complex crediting, data integration, custom reporting and performance analytics; no third party add-on modules are needed to deliver on these core requirements.  Compel offers sales, finance and HR professionals the most mature, affordable, complete and fully integrated solution for managing sales compensation and optimizing compensation programs to drive sales performance.

“New features and enhancements in Compel Spring 2008 are a reflection of customer feedback gathered through vehicles like the Centive Advisory Panel and customer surveys, coupled with a long-term product vision that leverages Centive’s eleven years of sales compensation domain experience,” said Bob Conlin, Chief Marketing Officer, Centive. “This seventh release of Compel moves Centive a significant step forward on our strategic product roadmap for providing full on-demand automation for the Sales Operations Center.”
