An intuitive, easy-to-use interface

- Make changes to territory and crediting assignment rules while tracking historical information.
- Access preconfigured dashboards and reports to see recent and historical activities, territory and crediting assignment gaps and conflicts, and audit information.
- Set effective dates for all configuration settings, so you can make changes while retaining previously-configured territory and crediting rules that have been processed.
Territory, crediting and transaction management
- Configure territory rules that are executed in order of precedence using one or more attributes to evaluate and define territory definitions and territory assignments. Exception roles can also be created.

- Allocate millions of transactions in record time using a high-performance platform that includes monitoring and elastic computing to increase processing resources when workload increases.
- Import reference and source data with no advanced extract, transform and load (ETL) processes required. Source data can be sales transactions or other sales activities such as sales opportunities.
- Configure security privileges, by user and role, for system and data access.
Reports, dashboards and analytics
- View territory and assignment rules that are over or underutilized or are causing transaction assignment discrepancies.
- Use a standard dashboard to display events metrics, trends and how territories have been configured.
- Use the sales crediting output as input to the compensation plan calculation engine. Sales crediting output can be fully integrated with IBM Cognos Incentive Compensation Management or provided as a data integration point to other systems.
