The program, developed over the past three years, recognizes that the Internet has changed buyer behavior and that buyers have the upper hand. Today only one in four salespeople gets a second meeting with a prospect*1, hence the value of a 1:1 sales call has risen dramatically; – sales, marketing and support people need better communication and rapport, language and interpersonal skills to engage, diagnose and qualify opportunities to improve sales performance.

Everyone can improve customer-facing skills starting today by tapping into SIIA, which leverages a modern eLearning platform (CogBooks) developed by a team of learning and sales experts. Recognizing that pre-knowledge level can be different for each user, this platform builds on individual understanding to offer a unique pathway for each user to develop knowledge.
