Overall Satisfaction with Xactly Connect

Connect is being used to reprocess our credit and commissions data every night. It is used in the Sales/Finance department and allows us to keep the results consistent regardless of the changes made to it throughout the day. It also automates the 5 steps per calculation period to save time that would otherwise be needed to manage the reprocess.
  • Scheduled automation.
  • Data integration.
  • Process notifications.
  • Quality Assurance and reporting.
  • SQL isn't the same syntax in Connect as it is in Sequal Server Management Studio, making it difficult for communities outside of Xactly to help with certain issues.
  • Sometimes the scheduling part of the tool does not work as expected, but over all it is consistent.
  • Saves us 10+ hours of work on a weekly basis.
  • Ensures that the results are consistent without manual intervention.
It is able to handle everything I have thrown at it. It processes quickly and gives great troubleshooting information when things error out.
If you know it well enough, it can be a powerful tool. Just having experience with SQL gives you the necessary tools to start using it. The guides also help greatly for any Connect-specific content.
Connect is well suited to pull data that you cannot easily pull from Incent or Analytics. It is also great for automating calculations and steps that you would otherwise need to manage manually.
