SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Nov. 10, 2009) – Fueled by new markets and strong growth across specialty and chain retail stores alike, online training leader 3point5.com recently passed a major milestone: the company now has users working at 20,000 different retail locations.

3point5.com builds innovative online training sites for manufacturers in the Outdoor, Hunt/Fish, Bike, Snowsports, Team Sports, Apparel and Footwear industries. Retail salespeople sign up for free, train on up-to-date brand, technology and product information, then must pass “Edu-Games” to earn deep discounts on the products they're selling.

The company has recently made inroads into the team sports arena by signing brands like Wilson, Atec and DeMarini. 3point5.com also builds online training for Under Armour. In addition, several large retailers including Performance Bicycle – the nation's largest specialty bike retailer – and Cabela's, contract with 3point5.com to provide exclusive training to retail salespeople.

The 20,000 retail location milestone is an important measuring stick for fast-growing company, according to CEO Duncan Robins.

“This is a significant number that validates a lot of hard work that's gone into refining our retail training products,” Robins said. “It means we're meeting the needs of manufacturers and retailers alike who recognize the importance of improving conversations on the sales floor.”
