SOFTWARE ALONE IS NOT A TOTAL INCENTIVE SOFTWARE COMPENSATION SOLUTION
We firmly believe that ECM/ICM software solutions like CATS are only part of an organization’s total success in the incentive compensation arena. Like any tool, it is only as good as the hands of the craftsman who is guiding it. In this case, the expertise of a professional incentive compensation consultant is a critical ingredient to the success of the software solution.
CATS was designed to complement this expertise, NOT replace it. Do not let anyone fool you into believing that a software platform is as smart as the cadre of successful professionals who work day in and day out on the cutting edge of incentive compensation practice.
This fast paced and ever changing 21st Century battleground for fine-tuning market share and profitability cannot be accomplished with tools constrained by a fixed set of incentive design objects. Nor do you want to implement a cutting edge incentive-linked sales strategy by automating only a partial solution.
ALL INCENTIVE SOFTWARE COMPENSATION SOFTWARE IS NOT THE SAME
CATS is guaranteed to implement any incentive compensation plan design or rule within the product without costly pre-processing of data or customization (please be certain to clearly ask this of other vendors and make sure your IT support team is in the room when you do). In addition, it can work with any ODBC compliant data source without the need to import or replicate data through an integrated ETL functionality. In turn, this eliminates the requirement (including cost and maintenance) for a third-party software tool and end-user license.
CATS is one of the fastest growing software solutions in the incentive compensation industry. It has been proven at scores of installations for over a decade. It offers the best value in the industry and is recommended by many of the incentive compensation industry’s leading consultants. User satisfaction is so high, our customers wouldn’t trade CATS for any other incentive software solution.
