Gears work spin together, representing the complexity of using commission spreadsheets

Cora first joined Core Commissions back in 2011. She teamed up with us at a trade show in Texas, originally pictured flying through the clouds. Today, you’ll find her working hard all across our application, automating commission management.

We thought it was finally time for us to introduce you to Cora and explain a little about what she’s here to do. Please meet Cora, Core Commissions’ Cash Cow!

Why a Cow?

Ever heard the term “Cash Cow”? The phrase originated sometime in the 1970s. It evolved from “milch cow” which literally referred to a cow on a dairy farm. Those were the ones that were easily milked and could make farmers money without a lot of effort. Today, “Cash Cow” refers to something in business that can help generate money without a lot of trouble.

The flexible and powerful tools available through Core Commissions are a cash cow for so many of our clients. What the application does for sales organizations of all sizes helps them save time and resources which they can focus on other parts of the business.


Cora, the Core Commissions Cash Cow is hard at work calculating commissions so you don’t have to.

What’s Cora Doing?

In the early days, Cora helped us shoot for the moon. We hoped to bring amazing capabilities to commission software solutions. That included the capacity for managing unlimited plans, complex rules, rapid installation, and unlimited data sources, among many other features. Even at the time, Core offered powerful commission software with affordable plans.

Since then, Cora has continued to support our clients with their calculations. Our clients who use the application daily have probably seen Cora hard at work, tallying up figures and data. Whenever they need to process their commission reports, Cora is there to help make it happen. That’s why she’s our Cash Cow!

Where to Find Cora?

Whenever you process calculations or pull up data through the Core Commissions application, Cora is there. She’s running those numbers for you. It might take a minute to get everything sorted but you can see her there hitting all the buttons to make it happen.

Soon you’ll be seeing Cora more often across the Core Commissions website as well. We’re working with her to find more ways to keep her busy and shooting for the moon. Where do you think Cora should pop up next? Tell us in the comments!

What do you do when you run into Cora?

Cora loves a good cow joke. If you need a good one, we’ve got you covered:

Two cows are grazing in a field. One says to the other, “Have you heard about that mad cow disease?” The other replies, “What do I care? I’m a helicopter!”

If you’d like to see more of Cora and get her help automating and simplifying commission management, let us know. Send us a note for more information on the application or set up a free demo. You might even get a firsthand glimpse of Cora hard at work. Hope to hear from you soon!
