Sciolytix Named One of<br>“2021 Top Experiential Learning Technologies Companies”<br>by Training Industry

Ranking recognizes Sciolytix’s UPtick sales simulations training software for its capabilities, experience and expertise – as evidenced by success at Nestlé Purina.

NEW YORK CITY; February 18, 2021 – Sciolytix has been named one of Training Industry’s 2021 Top Experiential Learning Technologies Companies.

This recognition comes in quick succession after Sciolytix earned four Brandon Hall awards for experiential learning in December. It also coincides with a substantial software release for Nestlé Purina, one of Sciolytix’s top clients and users of its UPtick simulation software.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Training Industry as one of the Top Experiential Learning Technologies Companies,” said Michael Bealmear, Sciolytix Chief Executive Officer. “Executives have known for some time that the best way to change results is for employees to change their habits – effectively, change their behavior. Experiential learning makes that possible, and in record time.”

UPtick uses 3-D immersive simulations to guide users through conversations with avatar customers and prospects that reflect real-life sales situations. All interactions are scored, providing analytics to identify training needs while driving continuous improvement and behavior change.

How Nestlé Purina applies Experiential Learning using UPtick

Nestlé Purina has used Sciolytix’s 3D immersive simulations and virtual reality for several years to enable more efficient onboarding of new sales hires and deliver more engaging learning to experienced sales reps. 

On average, it takes more than 80 conversations with a customer until a salesperson is proficient. Sales leaders want to decrease their reps’ time to revenue, but too often turn reps loose before they’ve reached the level of skill and mastery required for success. Nestlé Purina sought an environment where people can practice without the worry of losing a sale – while also being emotionally invested in their own development. They accomplished this through UPtick sales training simulations.

“The value added we’ve realized from using UPtick has been exceptional,” said Gene Feldman, Training Manager, Center for Functional Excellence at Nestlé Purina Petcare Company. “Sales cognition has gone up by 200%! The response from the field was so positive that we extended the use of business simulations to our Human Resources organization.”

“We love partnering with Gene and Nestlé Purina,” continued Bealmear. “They understand that practice leads to behavior change and that leads to improved results. Nestlé Purina is using UPtick’s most advanced capabilities, such as Virtual Reality and Voice Entry, to improve engagement.”
