Overall Satisfaction with Xactly Incent

I am working on Xactly Incent for over four years now. We use Incent for calculating commissions for over 1500 people along with using Analytics for reports. The tool is used by the commissions operations team. The system offers a lot of customization, which helps us to design the most complicated commission plans at ease and calculate commissions accordingly.
  • Xactly is a great tool to work with along with the customization it offers in terms of designing the plans.
  • It offers lot of details to the sales reps in terms of their respective credits for each deal under each month i.e. there is lot of transparency.
  • Prior Period Adjustment (PPA) is a great addition to the system.
  • Xactly Analytics is a great reporting tool.
  • At the start of the year, the system requires a kind of fresh set up, which takes quite amount of time.
  • While I am writing Rules, I need to create a new Order Type or Credit Type, I cannot create it from the Rules page. Instead I have to go to the specific page to create these Order or Credit Type and then return to the Rules page to write the Rule.
  • More customization on the Incentive Statements will be a great addition.
  • Xactly Incent is definitely a positive investment for the company. It helps the sales team to understand their earned commissions better along with their credits otherwise that would have been a big issue without Xactly Incent.
  • None
Xactly Incent offers a lot out of the box that meets our requirements.
Xactly Incent works great for companies with large sales team. It offers lot of customization for plan design and commission calculation. Plus Analytics (part of Incent) is good for running reports/creating dashboards.

Quick Initial Response
Yes - Yes, I have reported bugs in the past. And most of these bugs were fixed/resolved with an update.
We were busy with calculating commissions for a quarter when we encountered an issue with the system. Plus it was a weekend. We created a case with the Support team as the issue was impacting the commission calculation. We were not sure if there will be anyone available to help us out to resolve the case. But to our surprise, the Support team was quick to respond on the case and gave some alternate options to try, which worked in our case. The Support team contacted again later and followed up in the following days to make sure we did not had any further issues.
