Intangent Managed Services Offer Superior Capability for Incentive Compensation Management

June 27, 2013 (Toronto, ON) – Intangent, an industry leader in incentive compensation management services and solutions, is pleased to announce that its Managed Services offering has been extended and improved to ensure companies get the most out of their Varicent / Cognos Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) solutions.

IBM Cognos ICM 8, formerly a Varicent solution, provides an integrated platform for companies seeking a single solution for managing incentive compensation. Since 2005, Intangent’s Managed Services division has been leveraging its expertise to help organizations across all sectors develop and run their compensation plans. Throughout this period, Intangent Managed Services has successfully:

  • Enhanced existing ICM capabilities with new compensation plan and report development
  • Improved overall system performance by optimizing calculations and consulting on design decisions
  • Stabilized ICM systems by adopting best practices for solution management

“We are very proud of our team’s proven ability to provide the highest levels of managed services in the Incentive Compensation Management space,” said Chris Wales, President of Intangent. “We have consistently demonstrated that we can tackle challenging compensation scenarios while keeping complex systems running and paying on time.”

Enhanced Incentive Compensation Management

After eight years of successful service, Intangent’s Managed Services team of Varicent / Cognos experts has assisted customers in achieving higher levels of proficiency, expertise and efficiency.

Today, Intangent can quickly reverse-engineer any existing ICM system to troubleshoot issues and offer guidance on improvements. This deep experience allows it to advise clients on:

  • Best practices for changing and migrating plans
  • Issue management or change management
  • Managing multiple systems or environments

When properly designed and executed, an Incentive Compensation Management process can drive a virtuous cycle of growth, encourage desired behavior and enhance an organization’s bottom line interests.

The Intangent Managed Services team has developed a flexible and scalable methodology to optimize ICM to meet the needs of any organization.
