Cornerstone Software Acquires Makana Motivator
NASHUA, N.H., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cornerstone Software, Inc., a privately-held software technology and consulting company, announced today that it has acquired the easy-to-use Makana Motivator Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) compensation planning application. Makana Motivator automates the sales compensation planning and payment process for small- to mid-sized businesses enabling them to improve the way they plan, manage costs, and motivate their sales force.
The Makana Motivator SaaS sales compensation platform is a self-serve solution that automates incentive planning with built-in best practice advice, utilizes modeling to accurately predict the cost of incentives, delivers graphical charts that clearly communicate a sales person’s goals and rewards, automatically calculates incentive payments, and generates regular performance reports.
“Sales compensation is typically the second-largest expense for many small to mid-sized businesses,” said John Rindone, Chief Executive Officer at Cornerstone. “And yet, many of these companies still rely on spreadsheets to plan and calculate intricate, continuously changing incentive plans. The opportunity for error and overpayment is huge in a spreadsheet-based plan. Makana Motivator is easy to use and can immediately help companies better manage and predict costs and provide strategic incentives for their sales force.”
