Stockholm, May 23rd 2017 — Today, Mercuri International announced it has been included on the 2017 list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies that excel in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. The list appears in the June issue of Selling Power magazine, which will be available to subscribers the first week of June.
According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training continues to be of paramount importance in a digital age.
“We have now entered the era of Sales 3.0, which means balancing advanced technological tools with the human element of selling,” says Gschwandtner.
“This list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies is a critical tool for sales leaders. Anyone who wants to enhance the productivity and performance of salespeople should consider the companies on this list – each of which can help provide the increased support, coaching, and training necessary to help salespeople learn to navigate relationships with today’s empowered buyer.”
All companies on the list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions and services they have developed, and their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace. Additionally, they had at least four clients submit a brief survey on their experience working with the training provider and their satisfaction with results from the training effort.
The four main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:
- Depth and breadth of training offered
- Innovative offerings (specific training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
- Contributions to the sales-training market
- Strength of client satisfaction
Selling Power editors say the firms on the 2017 Top 20 Sales Training Companies list are uniquely positioned to help sales leaders create organizations that will succeed and remain competitive in today’s selling environment.
