Vistex solutions helps businesses take control of their mission-critical processes, including their promotions, rebates, pricing, discounts, and other incentives. With so many programs across so many partner relationships, it can be impossible to see where all the money is going, let alone how much difference it’s actually making to revenue.
Sanjay Shah, Vistex Founder, CEO and Chief Architect
Sanjay Shah is a tech entrepreneur, Founder, CEO & Chief Architect of enterprise software company Vistex, transforming how organizations bring their products and services to market by taking control of mission-critical processes. Shah identified a void in ERP and went on to establish Vistex, creating an entirely new category of enterprise software. As a global organization, Vistex’s software and services – along with their growing 1,600+ dedicated team members and associates – make sure it all adds up for their customers.
On the philanthropic front, Vistex Foundation provides grants to nonprofits focusing on health, education, and basic needs. Vistex Endeavor is an employee-focused charity centered on volunteerism. Shah is passionate about lifelong learning, so as a graduate of Lehigh University, he founded the Vistex Institute for Executive Learning and Research there.
Udo Hannemann, Senior VP and General Manager for Europe
Udo Hannemann is a Senior Vice President and General Manager at Vistex. With more than 30 years of experience in the IT industry I joined the Vistex team in 2010. His main passion has been to build a high-performance team in a multicultural environment with employees from more than 25 countries. I’m a strong advocate for creating a place of trust and sustainability, where employees are helping customers to run the best commercial platform within their industry.
Currently, in his role as General Manager at Vistex, he takes this approach to help their retail, manufacturing and distributor customers understand their most critical revenue programs and help them ensure that their programs (like trade spend, pricing, rebates, or claims) do not leave any money on the table. His passion is to help companies to innovate and optimize to achieve the next level of business excellence. At Vistex he brings in knowledge to build up new business models and introduce them to the market. Strategic liaison with large customers, defining strategies, comprehensive development of programs, portfolio management and best practices are part of my key skills.
