He has the right resumé. But does he have the right stuff?


Salesmax was developed using criteria critical to sales success. It measures how a candidate will do the job, why they will want to do the job and what they currently know about the consultative sales process.

This pre-employment assessment for sales professionals allows you to evaluate a candidate's fit within a consultative/relationship sales role.

SalesMax provides a "quick look" graph, a candidate's overall productive score and his/her strengths and weaknesses. It indicates a candidate's probability of producing in the top 50% of the sales team. Additionally, it will provide interview/reference questions and management suggestions.
