Spiff - Sandy
Spiff is a leading sales compensation software platform, headquartered in Sandy, UT. Their software automates commission calculations, provides transparency for sales teams, and motivates teams to drive top-line growth.
Between October 2020 and July 2021, Spiff experienced a major growth spurt, nearly tripling in size. This evolution was quickly followed by a $46 million dollar round of Series B funding from new and existing investors this past June. Spiffs rapid growth combined with changing workplace needs due to the pandemic, led Sean Jackson, Director of Information Security at Spiff (employee #34 in a company of now, 160), to seek out smart office tech to streamline and improve employee experiences.
Picture this, you’re sitting in a meeting and knock, knock, on the door. Someone interrupts your conversation to ask “how long are you going to be in this room, can we have it later on?”.
These awkward meeting room interactions were a regular occurrence because Spiff didn’t have a space management system. As Spiff prepared to move into larger office space, Sean made it a priority to solve this issue.
Like many companies, Spiff was working from home in 2020. As restrictions began to lift in 2021 and returning to the office became a possibility, Spiff surveyed their team to find out what employees wanted out of their work environment. Most folks weren’t ready to return to the office full time, but still wanted the flexibility to come in when it made sense for them. Sean knew hotdesking and room booking would allow for flexible work and the hybrid office environment they needed.
After a bit of online research, Spiff landed on PowerBx for their space management solution. Sean called PowerBx and explained what Spiff needed directly with our Sales Director, Andrew Jensen. “Andrew was very knowledgeable and quick. I described what I wanted and Andrew said I know what you need,” Sean explained, “He had the solution, ASTRO. We wanted LEDs, we needed 5 of these. It was super easy. Andrew even came on site to see what we needed and worked out the additional details during the site visit.”
Spiff wants their employees to walk into the office and feel like their workplace is tech friendly and modern. When folks walk around the building, they’ll see innovative and functional space management solutions that blend into the overall office ambience.
“I think people will just love it without knowing why they love it,” Sean shared.
Since deploying PowerBx ASTRO and Teem software, the feedback on room scheduling and hotdesking has been stellar. Folks love the workflow, the simplicity, the overall aesthetic and design of the tech.
“The cool thing about hotdesking and conference room management is that an employee can come from Brazil, be here for a month, and check out a desk for their stay, book meeting rooms as needed,” Sean noted, “With this move, we wanted to showcase that we’re leading edge tech. I see decking out our space in innovative and functional tech as “gilding the lily.””
When asked for final thoughts, Sean said, “Working with PowerBx has been great. Andrew is perfect, super knowledgeable and helpful.
Spiff is growing and glad to have such a great resource so close and to be able to support local business.”
