Varicent Redefines Sales Performance Management with Revenue Operations Solution FunnelCake


Toronto, Canada - Varicent today announced that it has acquired the FunnelCake solution for the strategic expansion of Varicent’s sales performance management product line, helping clients maximize capabilities to Plan, Operate, and Pay.

“FunnelCake also deepens Varicent’s integrations and expertise, which we’re confident will lead to even bigger customer outcomes.”

Headquartered in Toronto, Varicent provides SaaS-enabled operational and analytical tools that automate the creation, calculation, analysis, and transparent distribution of sales incentive management compensation plans used by hundreds of mid-market and enterprise companies.

“Varicent’s core mission is to unlock the untapped potential in an organization’s go-to-market. Varicent, including its Symon.AI technology, accomplishes this through a combination of driving efficiencies and improving effectiveness. The addition of FunnelCake provides Varicent the opportunity to expand into day-to-day sales operations by including best-of-breed technology for pipeline coaching and progression,” said Marc Altshuller, President and CEO of Varicent. “FunnelCake also deepens Varicent’s integrations and expertise, which we’re confident will lead to even bigger customer outcomes.”

"When Varicent approached us, it clicked just how much sense this makes," said Marko Savic, CEO and Founder of FunnelCake. "It's validation that a focus on revenue operations is the right path forward. The announcement today creates a world-class offering to solve real revenue operations issues. Sales, marketing, and customer success can collaborate to provide a positive customer experience through insights and action — common areas where CRM investments fall short. I'm excited to join the Varicent team knowing that by adding FunnelCake we complete the bridge between Varicent's planning and variable pay capabilities, allowing clients to now Plan, Operate and Pay."

“The need to manage revenue operations and overall performance across the organization and sales channels drives the requirement for applications designed to optimize for desired outcomes,” said Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer at Ventana Research. “Varicent’s strategic move to onboard the FunnelCake application and team will bolster its ability to bring a revenue focus to its sales performance management portfolio of applications.”

Financial terms of the asset transaction were not disclosed.
