Solution framework

To address these challenges, the firm embarked on a strategic initiative with the following key objectives:

  • Streamline incentive compensation process.
  • Enhance visibility of employee productivity.
  • Improve visibility of compensation outlook.

The initiative focused on incentive compensation management, commission management, campaigns management, integration with key source systems, and reporting and dashboarding. Hierarchies were created, and data was integrated from various systems into Anaplan. Then Historical data, employee mappings, and process definitions were also configured within Anaplan.
