If ever there were a crystal ball for predicting sales performance, Virtual Customer - Sales simulation is it.
Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) April 14, 2010
Employment Technologies, the world’s leading expert in employment simulations, today announced the release of EASy Simulation® Virtual Customer - Sales. The latest simulation in their suite of Virtual Customer products, Virtual Customer – Sales is designed specifically to assess and develop strong sales skills.
“If ever there were a crystal ball for predicting sales performance, Virtual Customer - Sales simulation is it,” states Employment Technologies president Joseph Sefcik. ”This highly interactive simulation blends advanced simulation technology with proven assessment methods, resulting in a selection and development tool that is both engaging for participants and highly effective in predicting job success.” The simulation immerses candidates in the sales associate role where they experience the challenges and demands of selling without the risk of mistakes with real customers. As candidates interact with virtual customers, employers obtain an accurate picture of how they will sell to real customers once they’re on the job.
When hiring and developing new sales associates, businesses face two key questions: How long will it take to train them? and How long before we see sales results? With Employment Technologies’ new simulation, employers are able to cut training time and reach sales goals faster than ever before.
“If new employees already know how to sell,” explains Sefcik, “you don’t have to spend as much time and effort teaching them what to do. By hiring someone with better sales skills, you’ll not only save cost, but you’ll earn a much greater and faster sales return.”
The Virtual Customer - Sales simulation helps businesses achieve the following:
- Increase sales. Virtual Customer – Sales gives businesses a competitive advantage by pinpointing candidates with the skills to start selling from day one. Participants who score higher on the Virtual Customer – Sales simulation achieve higher performance ratings and sell more than other associates.
- Reduce training time. With Virtual Customer – Sales, candidates gain experience selling before they ever interact with a real customer. As a result, these candidates are better prepared to effectively connect with customers and to close sales; consequently they require less training. EASy Simulations are shown to reduce training time by as much as 66%.
- Improve performance and productivity. The simulation creates a level playing field for employees to practice their skills without risk, perfect their sales techniques, and perform for optimal results. “By shortening the learning curve,” explains product developer Joe LaTorre, “employers not only save thousands of dollars in training costs, but more importantly, they can also earn tens of thousands of dollars from increased productivity.”
The Virtual Customer – Sales simulation has been developed and validated according to the highest professional, legal, and ethical standards. The online simulation simplifies the hiring process and gives employers the flexibility of remote or on-site testing. The Virtual Customer offers pricing models to fit every budget.
