In Related Announcement, Varicent Introduces Industry's First Mobile
Application for Sales Performance Management, Incentive Pay Programs
TORONTO, Dec. 3 /CNW/ -- Varicent Software, the only provider of complete
solutions for sales performance management (SPM) and enterprise-wide incentive
compensation management, has joined the BlackBerry(R) ISV Alliance Program.
"Like most global companies, our executives and our sales representatives
are fanatical users of their BlackBerry smartphones, and are rarely actually
at their desks during traditional business hours," said Brice Scheschuk, CFO,
Globalive Communications Corp. "From the individual sales rep to our senior
executives, we rely on the data delivered by Varicent SPM to help understand
our progress toward individual and corporate sales goals. By delivering this
information in real-time, anytime, anywhere our executives are, we've
significantly increased the strategic knowledge of our revenue-generating
employees, while reducing the number and urgency of information requests on
our finance staff."
The BlackBerry ISV Alliance Program provides solution providers like
Varicent with resources to help develop applications for use on BlackBerry
smartphones and to increase the visibility of those applications among
BlackBerry users and wireless carriers.
"Studies show our core users - people in the field and executive
management - are at their desks less than 50 percent of their working time,"
said Mark Girvan, vice president of business development, Varicent. "As part
of our launch of Varicent Mobile, we've joined the BlackBerry ISV Alliance
Program. We look forward to working closely with RIM to provide our clients
with a mobile application that allows them to realize an increased return on
their investment of their deployment of Varicent SPM."
"Companies realize the value of having data and business intelligence
delivered immediately to their employees wherever they are," said Jeff
McDowell, vice president, global alliances, RIM. "Varicent's ability to
provide mobile field sales representatives and senior managers with access to
information on sales performance and commission payout directly from their
BlackBerry smartphone demonstrates their commitment to delivering increased
value to their end users."
Varicent Mobile, introduced today (see related release), was developed in
conjunction with Vaultus Mobile Technologies. For more information on
