FNH USA offers easy-to-use web training

FNH USA launched its “3point5.com” training website for dealers and distributors on April 13, 2009.

McLean, Va. (May 6, 2009). FNH USA launched its “3point5.com” training website for dealers and distributors on April 13, 2009.

“This site is one way we help dealers and distributors train employees on FNH USA products. It is easy to sign on, and employees earn incentive pricing for completing each module of the training. Highest scorers are further rewarded with other prizes,” said Barbara Sadowy Bailey, director of marketing for FNH USA. “So far, we are very pleased with the response from retailers: 700 people trained during the first 10 days the site went live – a success, by any standards.”

The site contains historical information on the company, a discussion of all the lines and individual sections for handguns, rifles, etc. Employees play an “Edu-game” after completing online training. Incentive pricing on employee purchases of FNH USA products is earned by passing Edu-Games and scores are posted for supervisors to view.

3point5.com CEO, Duncan Robins, said, “3point5.com improves training consistency, is convenient for sales associates, and it will get more FNH USA products into the hands of the people who are actually doing the selling. Our online retail training method has a proven history of increasing the quality of conversations on the sales floor.”
