Improve adherence to your pricing strategy by aligning it to the sales team’s Compensation Design & Quota Setting.


Sales people, for the most part, do what you incentivize them on. Unfortunately, that means that if they are incentivized on revenue only, this often leaves to heavy discounting, lower average selling price, and much lower profitability. Organizations that adopt a value-based culture focus on price integrity. Price integrity means giving sales reps a personal stake in price realization. Doing so in a way that is both motivating and robust is both an art and a science.
