3POINT5 REACHES MAJOR MILESTONES
– 25,000 registered members and 500,000 individual brand education tests –
(Salt Lake City, UT) â€“ Last week, 3point5 announced the hiring of a new CEO, Duncan Robins.
This week, the pioneering online training company is back with more big news: they have surpassed 25,000 registered retail sales people, representing over 4,000 storefronts, who have taken over 500,000 individual brand education tests, called â€œEduGamesâ€.
For 3point5 founder Paul Kirwin, this latest achievement is only the beginning. â€œThis is good news for retailers, manufacturers and consumers, as well as for 3point5,â€ he said. â€œBy passing progressively more difficult brand EduGames, our retail sales people are becoming more effective on the sales floor. They’re learning about more than just the new product features and benefits â€“ they’re also learning the history and positioning of the brands themselves. And, by getting better deals by passing the tests, they’re earning and using the products themselves.â€
Currently, 26 leading brands are represented on 3point5, with more pending, according to CEO, Duncan Robins. â€œOur plan is to keep adding sales people and companies while expanding our training services to retailers.â€
â€œOur goal is to make 3point5 the place where retail sales people, retailers and manufacturers go to receive training, share ideas and get constructive feedback to generally tighten the connection between consumers and retail. Historically, communication between manufacturers and retailers has been one way. 3point5 wants to create the opportunity for a dialogueâ€.
