“A key challenge for sales managers and sales representatives is getting timely access to sales performance information so they can better measure and manage their sales teams or their own individual activities,” said Denis Pombriant, managing principle at Beagle Research Group. “Compel has always offered great visibility into earnings and performance data. With the Winter 2008 release, they have now raised the bar by providing interactive graphs that help the user quickly interpret trends and explore the relationship between sales performance and commission earnings across various dimensions such as product, territory and time.”
