Global company honored for the third straight year; Client PDS calls firm ‘gold standard for virtual learning’
BOSTON – November 10, 2022 –RAIN Group, a global sales training company delivering award-winning results through in-person and virtual sales training, coaching, and reinforcement, announced today that it was named to Selling Power’s 2022 list of Top 20 Virtual Sales Training Companies.
Making the list for the third straight year, the Inc. 5000 company was recognized for its virtual instructor-led training (VILT) and self-paced on-demand sales training.
“Last year we completed a once-in-a-decade overhaul of our education system across our suite of programs to be a completely virtual and digital native, modular-based, blendable with ILT, and eminently transferrable by license and train-the-trainer to our clients. We took our suite of sales training programs and broke them down into a rich and deep library of over 70 distinct, portable modular blocks of learning that cover specific skills that need to be mastered. Modules are built to ensure the training sticks, behaviors change, and results are realized,” shared Erica Schultz, CMO of RAIN Group.
Companies on the list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, delivery methods, and their response to changing market conditions.
The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:
To evaluate client satisfaction, the Selling Power team surveyed and considered feedback from RAIN Group’s clients.
John Miller, EVP of Sales for PDS, said, “We evaluated a lot of organizations in consideration of a virtual sales training program. RAIN Group stood out amongst the competition by offering a program that would be sustaining and behavior-changing, whereas most were going to merely produce a short-term boost. I've witnessed our pipeline grow tremendously since we started. In just three months since our conclusion, we've seen our pipeline grow by 14% in dollars, and more importantly, by 34% in the number of opportunities. We are getting the pipeline results and seeing the behavior changes in all. Simply put...RAIN Group has become the gold standard for Virtual Learning.”
RAIN Group continuously strives to provide its clients with the most effective training, giving them exactly what they need and when they need it. For instance, RAIN Group recently partnered with sales enablement technology leader Allego to help make this possible.
“The platform provides clients with an immersive experience and allows us to utilize the latest learning technologies and just-in-time learning for the best client experience,” said Schultz. “Learners have easy access to the training materials at any time, from any place, and on any device. Clients also have access to simple and inclusive reporting that displays key data in real-time.”
