Xactly CEA is allowing us to be in compliance with ASC606 without having an additional person calculating commissions and maintaining a massive spreadsheet.
  • Amortization & capitalization.
  • Follow set rules defining when/how certain payments are expensed.
  • Formatting of some reports in Excel isn't ideal when exported.
  • Expense rules are on the back end which requires asking support to update (although these are handled quickly).
CEA is well suited for small and rapidly growing companies where manually calculating commissions expense for ASC606 is not an option due to a lack of internal resources. CEA is less appropriate for larger companies that have the resources and likely a person, or people, who only focus on commissions.

The accounting department owns CEA. We have both a 605 and a 606 instance, with different rules set up in each instance according to our policies under the different standards. Our financials for the year ended January 31, 2019. That was the first year we were live with 606, so now we use the 606 instances exclusively. CEA provides us with automated amortization waterfalls and journal entries. In a perfect state, we would be able to download the journal entries and upload directly to NetSuite. However, due to the state our ICM system where commissions are not calculated accurately or timely, this is not possible. In addition, we are a publicly traded company and the system is not in compliance with our ITGCs, so there is a lot of additional manual checks that I must perform before booking entries.
  • Amortization waterfalls
  • Locked periods & PPA adjustments
  • Journal entries
  • Not possible to make back-end changes to amortization schedules independently (for example, if departments need to be changed).
  • Impossible to change rules without customer support, for example, if a new plan is added.
  • Have to run separate amortization schedules for each subsidiary rather than at a consolidated level.
Well suited if the company has an ICM solution that can produce accurate data on a timely basis. Not well suited for companies where commission calculations are not automated. Not well suited for companies with frequent plan changes.

Obero SPM is being used across the enterprise in finance to aggregate financial data and run models. The reports and templates are used by various business groups and can be accessed across functions to view data. The problems it addresses are instead of working on manual spreadsheets, the models calculate the required information and push it to separate models.
  • User-Friendly
  • Fast
  • Support
  • Dashboard is on a different page
  • Needing to rerun reports
  • Not being able to download reports and edit them
Forecasting and reporting capabilities are very user-friendly. The interface is good for cross-business functionality!
