TaylorMade-adidas Golf Company, a Carlsbad, California-based manufacturer of golf apparel and equipment, has opted to use CallidusCloud as  its primary sales performance management tool.

The agreement between Callidus and TaylorMade-adidas was signed for the third quarter of 2012, with the software solution being used as a means to drive performance of the golf brand's sales organization.

Commissions are a core part of TaylorMade-adidas's sales initiatives, as they enable the business to prioritize sales of new products and services. The ability to automate various tasks associated with the sales program – such as the calculation and payment of commissions across departments or the development of new plans – will help TaylorMade-adidas save both time and money in the long run.

"With its extensive modeling and analytics capabilities, [CallidusCloud's software solution] provides clear insight into the performance of current plans as well as a highly accurate forecast of future performance," CallidusCloud added in a press release. "Sales operations and finance enjoy significant time and cost savings whilst the sales teams benefit from faster, more accurate and more transparent commission payments."

Sales performance management solutions in general – whether from CallidusCloud or another vendor – are excellent tools to replace painstaking and time-consuming manual processes with automated ones that may help to expedite procedures and boost accuracy. Any company with a significant salesforce should investigate ways of utilizing this software to reduce the costs of operating these departments.
