Most people will never understand the complexity and frustrations of managing the commission process at a dealership.

Transforming commission management

Understanding dealership challenges

The complexities and headaches of managing dealership commissions are well-known to us. We've been in your shoes and have directly faced these challenges. (That's why we get so pumped to show you a better way!)

Our journey began with a pivotal moment when Zach Spangler, our founder, was approached by a General Manager from one of New Mexico's most esteemed dealerships. They were in dire need of a solution to overhaul their overwhelming commission calculation process.

This dealership was bogged down by Excel-based processes, dedicating approximately 30 hours each month to commission calculations—a task that was wearing out the spreadsheet team and creating underlying errors. They dedicated countless hours at month-end, only to encounter inaccuracies due to prevalent formula errors, costing them significantly.

The birth of Nimble Compensation: Stopping Commission Chaos

We found that the dealership's frustration was not a one-off. There was no dealership commission management software... It turns out that 96% of dealerships use Excel to manage the commission process, spending hours of precious time during month-end close trying to get commissions right.

Unfortunately, despite all the time spent, studies have shown that nearly 90% of Excel workbooks have formula errors. These were costing this particular dealership ~$25K each year.

Zach, with his expertise in accounting and software development, was driven to develop a platform that could quickly and accurately prove automated commissions were the answer.

And from that, Nimble Compensation was born.
