Only Stand-Alone Sales Compensation Planning, Modeling, and
Documentation Solution Is Now Available for $495/Quarter

SAN FRANCISCO– Dreamforce Conference–September 17, 2007–Makana Solutions[SM] Inc., developer of innovative on-demand solutions for sales compensation planning and design, today announced that Makana Motivator–subscription software for the design, modeling, production, and final sign-off of sales compensation plans–is now available over the Internet. Priced at just $495 per designer per quarter, a Makana Motivator subscription may be purchased online.

“Makana Motivator is designed to make effective sales compensation planning easier and more accessible,” said Elizabeth Cobb, president and CEO of Makana Solutions. “We started that process by including ‘best practices’ information, comp plan templates, and easy-to-read graphics, and by enabling companies to start with planning concepts, rather than forcing them to start with existing transactions. Now we’re following the lead of by ensuring subscriptions are virtually effortless to purchase.”

The planning stage is where the most critical decisions about sales compensation are made–decisions that lead teams to successfully carry out corporate plans or that, in the worst cases, cause costly unintended payouts. Makana Motivator is the only complete sales compensation planning and modeling solution that enables companies to tackle sales comp planning without requiring implementation of a production sales comp administration system.

Built from the point of view of a plan designer, Makana Motivator walks users through design of comp plans, incentive cost modeling, teamwork verification, alignment with strategy, management approval, document production, and contractual digital employee sign-off. Point-and-click simplicity, proffered “best practices,” and a patent-pending graphical interface enable even new or occasional plan designers to create effective and predictable incentive plans and to avoid expensive unintended consequences.

Since Makana Motivator is an on-demand (also known as software-as-a-service or SaaS) solution, users access the software via the Internet, and their data is secured at a hosted facility. The on-demand software model enables Makana Solutions to offer a powerful product at a reasonable cost, and it enables users to implement incentive-compensation planning and design without intensive vendor support.
