Sales success begins when the basic disposition for sales is present from the start. Personality traits are stable characteristics that are not easily changed through training. Sales professionals should possess the right personality from the start.
|Energetic – enthusiasm, hard work and visible effort||Expressive – free and easy conversational style|
|Follows-Through – finishes tasks, meets commitments||Serious – carefully considers decisions and actions|
|Optimistic – positive outlook, weathers adversity well||Self-Reliant – independent and self-motivated|
|Resilient – deals well with rejection and criticism||Accommodating – likeable, cooperative, win-win style|
|Assertive – possesses a confident sales presence||Positive About People – trusting and accepting|
|Sociable – outgoing and comfortable with people|
SalesMax measures candidate knowledge of effective strategies for various sales situations. Experienced candidates should score well in this area to be considered for selection. For the inexperienced or poorly trained candidate, SalesMax helps to target sales training needs.
Without proper motivation, even the best candidate may fail. The Motivations Section of SalesMax will help you gauge the fit between the candidate’s motivational needs, your supervisory style, and the rewards available in your organisation.
|Recognition/Attention – values recognition, enjoys attention||Developing Expertise – values perfecting skills|
|Control – prefers positions of control and being in charge||Affiliation – likes being with and helping people|
|Money – values financial rewards and material possessions||Security/Stability – values security in life/career|
|Freedom – values autonomy and functioning independently||Achievement – likes targets, enjoys challenges|

With SalesMax, it is possible to have your own personal administration site, add your own users and conduct your own test administrations anywhere in the world. This means that you no longer have to rely upon our bureau service to send the report to you, or receive an individual invoice each time you assess a candidate.
The system allows the Prime Administrator to add users (sub-administrators who have the authority to use SalesMax to assess candidates) or withdraw this authority. The Prime Administrator also has control over the user passwords, and can change them or retrieve them. Each user has the power to add, update or remove their own candidates. Authority for purchasing new testing units resides with the Prime Administrator.
Having your own SalesMax site allows organisations to set up national or international users at branch offices to do their own testing and then elect who has access to the system. A dedicated site would also suit consultants and recruiters who wish to test candidates on behalf of their own clients without going through a third party.
Now, with no set-up costs and a unit purchasing plan, you can do your own testing and data collection anywhere in the world and set up your own users. Remember this is entirely web-based. There is no software to be installed and no ongoing licence fees.
