Frequently asked questions about TestGroup's sales assessment
How was this sales assessment developed?
Together with Erasmus University Rotterdam, TestGroup has examined a large group of salespeople to find out which competencies really ensure more sales for salespeople and other commercial personnel. These competencies are included in the sales assessment. If you take a sales assessment with your candidates, these competencies will be tested, among other things.
Which sales skills are tested?
This sales skills assessment measures, among other things, the candidate's skills in the 6 steps of sales: (1) Planning & preparing, (2) Making contact, (3) Building desire, (4) Presenting the solutions, (5) Closing the deal and (6) Relationship management.
What are the costs of this sales test?
If you order the sales assessment separately (per candidate), the costs are 235 euros (excl. VAT). The costs per candidate are a lot lower if you buy credits or take out a subscription for unlimited use. All prices can be found on the prices page.
Why should I test my candidate for sales skills?
Because TestGroup research shows that not everyone has the right competencies to actually achieve turnover (= sales results). An interview is not enough to measure sales competencies. For this you need a good sales assessment. TestGroup's sales assessment uses algorithms to prevent a candidate from completing the test unfairly.
What is unique about this sales assessment tool?
TestGroup's sales assessment tool is the only one in the world that uses artificial intelligence to ensure that the candidate completes the test honestly. Is the candidate still trying to 'steer' the assessment? Then you can see that directly in the report, at the level of the competency.
Can I also prepare a report of my sales team?
Yes, of course! A sales assessment team report is also available. This way you know exactly where the team can improve their sales performance.
Does this test lead to more commercial results for sales talent
Because you will hire better salespeople by using this sales assessment, it will ensure more sales for your new employees. In addition, it will also ensure efficiency optimization of existing sales teams.
Can I also use this for the training and professional development of commercial staff?
Of course, this assessment is often used as a starting point for the development of sales competencies among existing employees. After taking this assessment, you immediately know where the development points lie.
Which reports do I receive with this sales assessment?
After your candidate has completed the sales assessment, you will receive a sales report and a 4-color personality report. This gives you a complete overview of the sales competencies. Do you want an explanation about the reports? Afterward you can go through the reports with a TestGroup consultant (free of charge) by phone.
