TALX Assessment Division, pan, Adds Chally Sales Accelerator to Test Catalog

St. Louis (June 8, 2010) — TALX Assessment Division, pan (Performance Assessment Network), a leader in online assessment and talent management systems, has added the Sales Accelerator, powered by Chally assessment, to its roster of tests used to evaluate candidates and employees.

The assessment will help companies recruit top talent and determine if their existing employees are serving in the right roles. By using the assessment, companies can cultivate growth, foster profitability and improve upon their competitive advantages. As the economy recovers, many companies will seek to optimize their workforces, further making assessment testing an integral part of that process.

The Sales Accelerator test was designed specifically for the selection of individuals for a variety of sales roles. The assessment is comprised of 288 multiple-choice items and takes about 45 minutes to complete. Results from this evaluation enable companies to determine if an individual is well-suited for a specific sales role.

The Sales Accelerator gauges an individual’s ability to perform very specific sales skills such as cultivate leads, qualify prospects, conduct presentations, foster partnerships, commit time to the job, and adapt a specific sales approach. It is available for roles in new business development, account management, territory consultative system sales, territory relationship product sales, product transaction sales, inbound sales, and outbound telesales.

The assessment is the latest addition to pan’s assessment catalog of more than 250 evaluations from more than 50 of the world’s leading test publishers.

“We are pleased to feature Chally’s Sales Accelerator evaluation as a part of our world-class suite of assessment tools,” said Doug Cole, pan’s Senior Vice President and General Manager. “We are confident that this test will enable companies to accurately examine prospective and existing associates in order to optimize their performance and profitability. As the economy thaws out, this will be increasingly imperative.”
