    TORONTO, Feb. 6 /CNW/ -- Selecting a software vendor can be a challenging

an interactive Webcast.

February 21, 2008 at 2:00pm ET, features:
    -- Liz Herbert, senior analyst, Forrester Research;

    Sales performance management delivers strategic visibility and insight
into operational performance and variable pay programs.  By combining
incentive compensation management (ICM) with territory management, quota
planning and performance analytics, companies can better understand how
incentive plans drive employee behavior, which performers (sales reps,
territories, products, etc.,) drive revenue and which need to be adjusted for
better revenue, and where to capitalize on missed opportunities.
    During the Webcast, Herbert will discuss Forrester's recent research,
"Best Practices for Sales Performance Management RFPs,
Adashek will highlight Manpower's recent internal requirements review, and
vendor assessment and selection; and all panelists will discuss trends driving
vendor selection in the sales performance management space.

    Who should attend:
    -- CFOs, VPs of finance, financial systems managers, financial analysts;
    -- Compensation specialists, VPs, managers and directors of HR, HRIM
    -- VPs, managers and sales executives;
    -- IT personnel currently supporting incentive compensation technology and
    Attendees will learn the top factors they should consider when evaluating
SPM solutions, key questions to ask of SPM vendors, and best practices and
trends in SPM vendor selection.  All attendees will also receive a pre-release
executive white paper summarizing results from a recent survey on Sales
Performance Management best practices.
