Pleasanton, CA — May 6, 2004 — PeopleSoft Inc. today announced that Agilent Technologies has deployed PeopleSoft Enterprise Sales Incentive Management (SIM) to its global salesforce of more than 2,000 employees. SIM, which is part of PeopleSoft's Human Capital Management (HCM) suite, provides organizations with real-time access to sales management and compensation information, according to the provider.

Agilent said SIM will enable the company to lower administration costs, eliminate redundant data entry, more effectively measure the results of incentive programs, and see that accurate commissions are paid by integrating with HCM products such as Payroll and ePerformance. The result, Agilent said, will be an enterprise-wide view of the sales management and compensation process, allowing the company to better align its global salesforce with company goals.

"We needed a single system to measure the effectiveness of incentive pay plans and maximize salesforce performance," said Vicki Groninga, senior manager, Global Incentive Pay Organization at Agilent. "During our competitive evaluation, PeopleSoft's SIM proved to have the flexibility and functionality we required. It has streamlined our sales management process and reduced the time to review and edit transactions."

"PeopleSoft SIM will allow Agilent to quickly set, revise, and communicate sales plans around the world, bringing its salesforce into closer alignment with overall company objectives," said Mark Frost, general manager of PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM.
