About Us

Paint stroke

Canidium is the leading sales performance, incentive compensation, and sales process optimization consultancy. For more than 10 years, our seasoned consultants have partnered with mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies to identify opportunities in which technology better enables these sales and service functions. We provide the expertise and guidance to companies to select and implement performance management and sales enablement technologies that result in a better understanding of where to focus and how to motivate and enable these teams to align individual behaviors with corporate objectives.

      Our consultants are both ethical and realistic in their approach. We won’t recommend a solution or agree to implement software or process unless we strongly believe that it will help our customers to ultimately improve the effectiveness of their sales program.
