Large amounts of funds are earmarked each year to incent a
client's distribution channel partners to promote the client's products. To
qualify to receive those funds, the partner typically must meet certain
criteria and goals, as well as submit appropriate documentation. A large number
of partners and ever-changing roster of dynamic incentive programs with various
requirements required a large amount of client resources to manage. The size of
the payments involved were considerable and great care needed to ensure all
program criteria were met before funds were released.
