Selling Power Features Sales Readiness Group as a Top Online Sales Training Company

2020 Top 20 Online Sales Training logo-transparent-2SEATTLE, WA — Today, Sales Readiness Group announced that it has been featured on the 2020 list of the Top 20 Online Sales Training Companies. The list appears in the September/October 2020 issue of Selling Power magazine.

For the first time, this edition of the Top 20 list focuses specifically on the top organizations providing online sales training. The list helps B2B sales leaders select the right virtual sales training partner to help salespeople navigate ever-shifting B2B customer buying journeys, close bigger deals more consistently, avoid common selling pitfalls, and achieve quota consistently.

Selling Power founder Gerhard Gschwandtner says an online-focused list is particularly relevant as COVID-19 has catalyzed the shift toward virtual business for B2B sales leaders and teams.

“Recent research from McKinsey & Company shows 90% of sales teams have transitioned to remote selling,” he says. “Finding a sales training partner that can deliver effective learning virtually—the same way B2B sales teams are conducting business—will be crucial for leaders as they navigate the current crisis and plan for the future.”

Ray Makela, Sales Readiness Group CEO, noted that "as companies continue to adapt to remote and work-from-home requirements, improving the way they engage with clients has never been more critical. Training sales teams to sell virtually is a top priority and being able to deliver that training virtually is also an essential requirement. We’ve been working for over 10 years providing virtual and digital sales training programs to clients throughout the world. We believe that our new Collaborative Learning (CLX) training platform represents a major leap forward in participant engagement for online and virtual training programs, and ultimately this produces better training outcomes. We are honored that through their testimonials and endorsements, our clients have helped us achieve this important recognition. We’re incredibly proud to be included in Selling Power’s first-ever Top 20 Online Sales Training Company list.

All companies on the Selling Power Top 20 Online Sales Training Companies 2020 list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions, and their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace.

  5. offerings)
  6. Methodologies for supporting participant retention
  7. Strength of client feedback as it relates to customer support, ROI, ease of use, and overall client satisfaction
