Reps can also compare historical pipeline progress during different periods to understand how different deals affect pipeline health.

The Aviso Advantage:

- It helps understand if a good mix of deals supports the pipeline coverage to hit quota with greater certainty.

Aviso’s cloud-based sales forecasting and insights platform drives forecast accuracy and enables executive planning withan accurate forecast on Day 1 of the quarter.

Sales teams get insight into all deals called in and out of forecast with deal level forecasting and this helps them close deals faster.

Commercial Model and Pricing Transparency
Aviso’s consumption-based pricing model enables customers to pay for what they use or consume – no more, no less. Our customers can easily equate value to price with the flexibility to opt for consumption pricing if the daily/weekly average use goes down. Thus the customers are empowered to take advantage of only the features and options they need, giving them greater control over their budgets since pricing is directly related to usage.
Following the transparent pricing strategy, Aviso also offers performance-based pricing with variable pricing bands connected to the accuracy of the forecast. This pricing model varies, at different tiers of quota attainment, based on the AI accuracy and the achieved outcome. Connecting AI accuracy with rep performance gives our customers more transparent tools and support.
