SALT LAKE CITY, UTâ€“ (Sept. 22, 2008) â€“ Online retail training leader 3point5.com recently launched a training site for Flow Snowboarding, a leading manufacturer of snowboards, boots and bindings. The snowboarding site â€“ 3point5.com’s first â€“ adds heft to the Web-based training company’s growing snow- and action-sports training offerings.
The training, which will teach retail salespeople about Flow brand, technologies and products, is designed to improve the quality of conversations on the salesfloor. In exchange for taking the free, quick training and passing â€œEdu-Gamesâ€ that test comprehension, retail salespeople gain access to deep discounts on Flow products.
â€œ3point5.com’s Web-based training â€“ which includes music and entertaining Flash images – speaks to retail employees in a language they understand,â€ said Kevin Addy, national sales manager for Flow Snowboarding.
3point5.com’s highly customizable solution provides engaging, interactive training courses that show the effectiveness of tying quality training directly to customized employee discount programs. This results-oriented solution has become a preferred training method for hundreds of manufactures and thousands of retailers.
â€œIf you’re not training online, you’re missing an opportunity to really connect with your sales force on their level,â€ Addy said. â€œ3point5.com offers valuable sales training in a fast, fun online format that employees can access anytime and anywhere they have access to the Web.â€
