Challenge

 

Destination XL (DXL) Group wanted to help its customers - big and tall men who are poorly served by most retailers - see clothes shopping as a pleasure, not a chore. Boosting customer service levels was key and DXL needed a sales performance management platform to support their efforts.

Solution

 

Alan Teixeira, Vice President Human Resources, Compensation & Benefits, comments: “We used to use spreadsheets to calculate sales associates’ compensation, but our transition to the Destination XL brand meant we needed a far more sophisticated approach. We wanted to look more closely at our 1,800 sales associates’ compensation, going beyond the transaction level and looking at the combinations of items sold on a single sales ticket.”

Varicent Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) removes friction from the compensation process, accelerates the ability to make plan changes and adopt new strategies, and enables new insights to outdo previous performance.
