Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

Can you tell me please what you would like the formula to do?

Thank you
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

There are multiple variables. I can send you the grid if that makes it easier.


 


I am trying to figure out projected bonuses based on various penetration levels.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
Before you send it Tom,

Tell me in your own words (not formulas) what you want to accomplish please.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

OK.


If product penetration is >30% and lease penetration is <15% then they earn $50 per contract. If product penetration is >40% and lease penetration is <15% then they earn $75 per contract. If product penetration is >50% and lease penetration is <15% then they get paid $100 per contract plus $50 per CPO. If product penetration is >60% and lease is <15% they get paid $125 per contract plus $60 per CPO.

Thanks! Product penetration refers to Mechanical penetration.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
And the Formula goes in J correct?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Yes. That would be perfect.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
This is done now Tom

You can download it from www.wikisend.com

The File ID is 187452

Download and check it and let me know if there are any problems please.

Thank you

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

It doesn't look right. The first one should be $375, second should be $6055.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
But you say (and this is the maximum)

they get paid $125 per contract plus $60 per CPO.

So the max can only be 185?

Or should this be multiplied by something?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Should be multiplied. The $125 should be multiplied by the "Mech Sales" count in column C, and the $60 should be multiplied by the "CPO Sales" count in column D.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
ok, this is done and you can download it under File ID 715290

Let me know if you have any difficulties please

Thank you
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

still not adding up. Take a look at the dealer in row 5, Pine Belt. They had 47 contracts * $125 plus 3 CPO sales *$60. Should add up to $6055.


 


This is the problem I couldn't figure out. I was getting the same thing.

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
It calculates correct.

It is greater then 30 and greater then 15 so 50 x 47 = 2350

On that equation you did not specify anything times the CPO Sales.

If product penetration is >30% and lease penetration is >15% then they earn $50 per contract.

But I think you gave me wrong information

It is not just Mechanical penetration. but also Leases in H correct?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

No. The number of leases in H was just a way for me to figure the lease percentage. You are correct, but the were 63% mechanical penetration which would pay them $125 per mechanical contract, plus 27% lease penetration which would pay $60 per CPO.


 


Confusing, yes?

Expert:  Richard replied 8 months ago.
yes, as you are not telling me the formula correct Tom, thats only making it confusing, and I am working hard on what you are telling me.

This is what you said

If product penetration is >30% and lease penetration is >15% then they earn $50 per contract.

There is no mention of $60 per CPO, or is that for all the matches in that block?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.

Let me try this.


 


If lease penetration is <15% then they are paid this way



  1. Mechanical penetration is >30% but <40% then $50 per mechanical contract

  2. Mech Pen is >40% but <50% then $75 per mech contract

  3. Mech pen is >50% but <60% then $100 per mech contract + $50 per CPO

  4. Mech Pen is >60% then $125 per mech contract +$60 per CPO


If lease pen is >15% but <20% then they are paid this way



  1. Mechanical penetration is >30% but <40% then $50 per mechanical contract

  2. Mech Pen is >40% but <50% then $75 per mech contract

  3. Mech pen is >50% but <55% then $100 per mech contract + $50 per CPO

  4. Mech Pen is >55% then $125 per mech contract +$60 per CPO


If lease pen is >20% but <25% then they are paid this way



  1. Mechanical penetration is >30% but <40% then $50 per mechanical contract

  2. Mech Pen is >40% but <45% then $75 per mech contract

  3. Mech pen is >45% but <55% then $100 per mech contract + $50 per CPO

  4. Mech Pen is >55% then $125 per mech contract +$60 per CPO


If lease pen is >25% then they are paid this way



  1. Mechanical penetration is >30% but <40% then $50 per mechanical contract

  2. Mech Pen is >40% but <45% then $75 per mech contract

  3. Mech pen is >45% but <50% then $100 per mech contract + $50 per CPO

  4. Mech Pen is >50% then $125 per mech contract +$60 per CPO


 


Make better sense?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
