)-- AlignMark, Inc., is pleased to announce the formal launch of it’s 2009 Sales Talent Research Study and is actively seeking participation from companies. As part of the Study, AlignMark will use its previously developed and validated AccuVision Sales Simulator 2.0, the only online interactive video sales simulation tool that combines realistic sales-situation video simulations, web-delivery and scoring to enable clients to accurately capture the skills, abilities and behavioral tendencies required for success in a consultative sales position.
General components of the Study include: (1) assessing the consultative selling skills of a large sample of incumbent sales professionals from multiple industries and vertical markets; (2) analyzing resulting data by industry, classification of sales offering, company size, etc., in order to identify trends and differences in sales skills across groups; and (3) provide participating companies with group feedback on their respective incumbents’ performance trends, as well as benchmarking data to relevant comparison groups.
According to Mike Struth, Senior Vice President of Operations, “we are offering participating companies the opportunity to assess up to 30 incumbent sales professionals and, in return, receive a benchmarking report which compares the sales skills of their sales people to those of other participating companies. He goes on to say, “there is no financial cost to any company wishing to participate”
