Innovative training company makes its methodologies portable
September 25, 2009 // Franchising.com // Owings Mills, Md.,-- Sandler Training, the world's leading provider of sales, management and leadership training, has announced the release of its iPhone app, which offers users access to a plethora of helpful content--including tips, tools, charts, feedback functions and other features--from its heralded sales-training program.
"We recognize that salespeople today are using their iPhones as they navigate their schedules of meetings, sales calls and other business activities," says Dave Mattson, CEO and a partner of Sandler Training. "Our iPhone app gives these users 24/7, fingertip access to tools that allow them to accelerate their learning process and support their sales success." Those who have received training in Sandler methodologies or would like to get a taste of Sandler methodologies will find this convenient resource particularly useful, he explains.
"This is just another way," says Mattson, "that Sandler makes sure our clients receive the reinforcement they need."
Austin, Texas-based business-technology firm Live Oak 360 built the app. Notably, Andy Meadows, CEO and founder of Live Oak, who has previously received Sandler Training, participated in--and championed--the app's development.
"Since our beginnings in the early 1970s, Sandler Training has been on the cutting edge of technology and thought, so this app is a natural next step for us to make," says Mattson. Regular updates are planned to keep the Sandler Training iPhone app ever-more current and relevant. The Sandler Training iPhone app can be purchased through Apple's iPhone-based app store and through iTunes. Two versions are available, including a free demo that allows for use of the Sandler glossary, among other features. The comprehensive, full app is priced to sell at $4.99. "In offering users valuable, useful training materials on the go, no other company can compete with Sandler's new iPhone app," says Mattson.
With 200 licensed trainers throughout the U.S. and internationally, Sandler Training is the leading provider of sales and management training. The company offers a full range of programs, with powerful coordination and customization benefits throughout its extensive franchise network. Among its many achievements, Sandler Training has been named by Entrepreneur Magazine as the #1 Training Programs eight times, and each of the last three years--2006, 2007, and 2008.
