Nexient Learning Selects Varicent Software


Nexient Learning selected Varicent Software as its sales performance management (SPM) solution.

Nexient is turning to SPM as part of a larger customer sector strategy aimed at improving their sales and service effectiveness. Nexient has grown through acquisition, which created an environment of disparate sales systems and compensation strategies. The company's management and its sales representatives are challenged by the lack of visibility and transparency into sales activity across the entire organization.

"Our evaluation of sales performance management consisted of two parts," said Donna de Winter, CEO of Nexient Learning. "First, we examined building and maintaining our own incentive compensation management solution. Second, we looked at currently available software. Ultimately, we decided Varicent was the right organization with the right solution to manage the complexity inherent in Nexient Learning's sales compensation plans."


Eaton Steel Improves Business Processes with Oracle


Eaton Steel, a leading distributor and processor of engineered steel bars, is relying on the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Database and Oracle SOA Suite, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, to gain insight into its supply chain network and financial results, simplify transactions with its network of partners and help reduce costs by automating key business processes.


Using Oracle Financials, Eaton Steel gained a unified view of its financial performance and transactions across all six of its subsidiaries. As a result, the company has better insight into organizational performance and can consistently refine processes to improve results.


Eaton Steel is now able to manage its entire steel production process, from heat-treating and sizing the material to work-in-process to cost and quality management. Additionally, the company relies on Oracle to automatically transfer engineering specifications into production items, bills of material and routing.
