of sales training
Pitchboy is the first virtual reality sales training tool on the market which offers an intelligent conversation simulation. The software gives sales professionals the opportunity to practise their public speaking and the art of persuasion in a real-life situation.
Students retain only 20% of audio learning, 30% of visual learning and 90% of practical learning. With Pitchboy, even the least experienced can acquire a concrete experience. The tool marks a revolution for corporate training, where typically what counts is experience working in the field.
The virtual reality application places users in a real-life situation in which they are in conversation with a salesperson.
The simulation starts as soon as the user puts on the VR headset and enters the virtual meeting room. The user has 10 to 20 minutes to pitch the benefits of their product or service and persuade the salesperson to make a purchase. Pitchboy offers the full package by embellishing the simulation with auditory sensors and immersive visuals, giving the impression that the user is truly faced with a client, prospect or potential buyer.
The virtual client keeps the conversation going with frequent questions which could either be spontaneous or a reaction to the argument put forward. Each session is also adapted to the learning needs of the user.
What’s more is that the exercise is 100% tailored. The client could be the owner of a SME, a key account buyer, doctor or retail client. The possibilities are endless.
The user should follow the classic conversational path of a salesperson by starting with a detailed presentation of the product, cost, benefits, client case studies and the ROI.
During this exercise, the software analyses:
- The argument put forward, based on the sequence of key words and phrases
- The tone of voice and pitch
- The body language
- Sales force
- Customer Service team
- Medical sales
- Training centres
- Recruitment professionals
