Phonak LLC Implements Varicent’s Cloud Solution
February 7, 2012 (Toronto, ON) – Varicent announced today that Phonak LLC, the US market leader in hearing instruments, has deployed Varicent to enhance and automate its sales incentive compensation plans and sales commissions processes.
“We had been managing with manual, Excel-based processes for a while prior to implementing Varicent; we knew it was time to make a change,” said Peter Knapp, Chief Administrative and Financial Officer of Phonak LLC. “In just a few months, we have rolled out a new compensation management solution that provides timely accurate information and is integrated with Salesforce.com. As our business continues to grow, we will realize even more benefits of enhanced visibility and analytics.”
Varicent reduces barriers caused by manual processes and spreadsheets. Organizations using Varicent benefit from automated administrative sales commission processes, the ability to integrate data from various systems, and the ability to calculate and distribute personalized reports with minimal IT involvement. In addition, Varicent provides the capability to modify plans or special performance incentive funds (SPIFs) spontaneously, visibility into performance and pipeline, and improved compliance and governance with a full and sophisticated audit trail.
"We knew that Phonak had aggressive timelines and with more than 10 plans, multiple components and reports, we had our work cut out for us,” said Mike Meisenheimer, Director of Industry Solutions, Varicent. "Working with the Phonak team, we helped prioritized their interests. We are proud that we delivered a solution that was on time and on budget. We look forward to growing our relationship as Phonak continues its significant growth.”
