Volcano Corporation Selects Xactly

 

Volcano Corp., a provider of products designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of vascular and structural heart diseases, selected the Xactly Corp.’s Xactly Incent Managed Service for sales compensation management. 

 

With Xactly Incent Managed Service, Volcano gains an outsourced, on-demand service for managing incentive compensation that will replace its earlier spreadsheet-based processes.

 

“To help power our company’s continued growth, we chose Xactly Incent’s on-demand software solution to automate and improve the business-critical process of sales compensation management,” said George Quinoy, vice president of global sales at Volcano Corp. “After reviewing both on-premise and on-demand applications, we selected Xactly Incent as it demonstrated powerful functionality to automate a best practices approach as well as tight integration with Salesforce, our company’s standard for on-demand CRM.”

 

Air Wisconsin Selects UltiPro as SaaS Offering

 

Air Wisconsin Airlines Corp. selected Ultimate Software’s UltiPro, UltiPro Recruitment and UltiPro Performance Management delivered through Ultimate Software’s software as a service (SaaS) model.

 

Air Wisconsin is a privately held regional and commuter airline serving approximately 70 cities.

 

“With UltiPro, we will have a complete recruitment through retirement solution to elevate our human resources activities to a more strategic level. And Intersourcing will allow us to get up and running quickly, because we won’t have to wait for internal IT resources,” said Jeff Main, managing director of IT for Air Wisconsin. “We are excited to migrate from tactical to more strategic employee management operations by having a system to better support the HR team in its objectives.”

 

Graco Selects Noetix to Streamline BI Reporting


Graco selected Noetix to streamline its BI reporting in order to speed the delivery of corporate information to business professionals across the organization. 


Minnesota-based Graco recently initiated an Oracle enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation that will consolidate 12 worldwide factories and office locations under one ERP system. 


“Traditionally, it has taken our information security (IS) group several days to develop a report requested by one of Graco’s approximately 150 business users, because the data was dispersed throughout different ERP systems across the company,” said Gary Gasperini, director of worldwide strategic sourcing for Graco. “Using Noetix, our IS team predicts it will be able to respond to the same type of reporting requests in minutes rather than days.”

 

FourWinds Capital Management Selects SunGard’s Kiodex

 

FourWinds Capital Management, a commodity-focused investment manager, selected SunGard’s Kiodex as its risk management, valuation and analysis solution for the recently launched Ceres Agriculture Fund, an actively managed portfolio of agricultural and soft commodity contracts and derivatives.

 

Cayman Islands-based FourWinds manages several additional cross-commodity hedge funds with exposure to commodities such as energy, metals, agriculturals and softs.

 

“SunGard’s Kiodex will support our needs for a risk management and valuation service coupled with scenario analysis to identify market opportunities. Kiodex is easy-to-use, and because of its delivery model it will not require a lot of resources on our part,” said Mel Epstein, managing director and chief operating officer at FourWinds Capital Management Inc.

 

Children’s Hospital of Omaha Uses ActiveBatch

 

Children’s Hospital in Omaha, a full-service pediatric health care center in Nebraska, selected Advanced Systems Concepts' (ASCI) ActiveBatch to manage the hospital’s automated job scheduling tasks.

 

As the key application responsible for Children’s Hospital’s data warehouse management, ActiveBatch now plays a role in updating and maintaining major data repository at the hospital.

 

“Until now, most of our processing tasks have been accomplished through a combination of manual operations and internally-generated scripts,” said Allana Cummings, vice president and chief information officer of Children’s Hospital. “We realized that automation would significantly increase the availability and value of our various data stores. ActiveBatch has the power and flexibility to accomplish all these tasks, and it can do so on a daily, even real-time, basis.”
