Akeron recognized in the 2024 Gartner® Market Guide for SPM

Lucca, April 19, 2024 – Akeron, a company that develops enterprise software to drive growth and improve business performance efficiency, today announces that it has been recognized for the third consecutive year as a Representative Vendor  in the  2024 Gartner® Market Guide   for Sales Performance Management

 “Gartner defines sales performance management (SPM) as a suite of applications that enable the implementation and administration of commission-based incentive plans for sellers and other revenue producers, with variable short-term incentives.”

According to Gartner, “SPM applications automate and unify sales management processes, improving operational efficiency and effectiveness. Sales Operations offices use SPM tools for territory and quota planning, incentive calculation, report production and performance analysis. SPM tools thus facilitate collaboration among teams and enable governance of incentive plans. This is especially important, according to Gartner, for organizations that manage challenging and articulated sales plans.”

We are extremely proud of this recognition,” comments Manuel Vellutini, co-CEO of Akeron, “Akeron is the only Italian company to be recognized in the Gartner Market Guide report. As Lovers of Innovation, we propose a no-code, user-friendly solution that is open to artificial intelligence and predictive intelligence. We believe, we are recognized in the Gartner report as a  Representative Vendor  because we support the sales department in implementing sales strategies in an omnichannel mode, using all touch-points”.

Vulki by Akeron,” adds Marco Pierallini, co-CEO of Akeron, “is a comprehensive platform for motivating sales teams, managing from start to finish all strategic levers related to sales performance such as sales, territory and quota planning and incentives such as commissions and bonuses. We want to do all this by leveraging the best technologies and our strong industry expertise, which enables us to enhance the value of our solutions. We wel-come the recognition  in the Gartner report.  In particular we are seeing in the market a good level of interest of integration with Microsoft infrastructure with both Microsoft Dynamics ERP, CRM and Power BI solutions.”
