Cloud-based enterprise performance management provider Host Analytics announced the launch of Host Analytics Sales Planning, a new application for finance and sales professionals to manage sales forecasting, trend reporting and commission planning.

The EPM app, which integrates with Salesforce.com, incorporates regular updates to the sales forecast into finance and accounting processes. Host Analytics Sales Planning can be used by finance professionals to manage corporate planning, executive reporting, early warning and predictable revenue.

In utilizing the application to manage sales forecasting, trend reporting, commission planning and territory planning, sales managers can move off of Excel as a primary planning tool.

“In today’s business environment, it is absolutely critical that sales and finance departments partner and effectively communicate to achieve revenue predictability,” stated Lance Walter, chief marketing officer at Host Analytics. “Host Analytics Sales Planning gives business leaders the ability to align and stay agile and synchronized in a very dynamic selling environment.”
