DirecTV’s Callidus Deployment Pays Off

Callidus Software Inc. said Wednesday that DirecTV Inc. has successfully deployed its “Callidus TrueComp,” helping the direct-broadcast satellite provider to automate the resolution of compensation-related issues with increased accuracy.

The vendor said its software helps to ensure accurate and timely delivery of payouts and results to drive competitive advantage by aligning distributor and dealer performance with corporate strategy.

“By leveraging TrueComp, we have the ability to implement compensation programs almost overnight to meet business needs, allowing us to immediately align activities to current business goals," DirecTV executive vice president and chief information officer Bob Pacek said in a prepared statement.

Callidus senior VP Bert Rankin added, “TrueComp's ability to process millions of transactions per month for DirecTV allows it to dramatically improve relations with its distributors and dealers.”
