Our Story

After many years working with sales-driven organizations to maximize results, our CEO & founder, Marguerite Zimmerman, came to the realization that companies spend tens of thousands of dollars to attract sales representatives, only to have a high percentage leave within the first 18 months. In most cases, companies do not see a return on their investment. One major consumer goods company she was consulting with had a 75% turnover rate each year with their sales force, while a document solutions company suffered from a 70% turnover rate.

It’s easy to say that sales is the lifeblood of an organization, yet the costs to maintain sales teams are sometimes so enormous that companies often find it cheaper to buy new business through acquisitions.

Unlocking Sustainable Sales Success

In order to address the high costs of maintaining sales teams, E=mz2 was formed, and we began work with a tremendous group of thought leaders in sales, learning theory, neuroscience and technology to unlock sustainable sales success for organizations.

Our research uncovered that well-trained sales forces perform better, have less turnover, and are much more effective at driving revenue.

So, along with our thought leaders, we designed cutting-edge sales training system that has been driving results for salespeople, sales teams, and business students ever since.

The E=mz2 Team

We are a team of sales consultants, education experts, scientists, and thought leaders who have designed a sales training system that actually ensures learners retain and use what they learn.

What is a Sales Simulator?

Much like a flight simulator, a sales simulator is a risk-free virtual environment where users are free to practice and improve their skills in a controlled environment. Our solution, called Momentium, is an online learning platform that puts users in lifelike sales calls where they must open, develop, and close a deal using the skills they are being taught. Unlike other training solutions, Momentium gives learners the opportunity to put techniques into practice immediately. This develops good habits and more successful salespeople.

What is Online Sales Training?

Most sales training takes place in the form of conferences or workshops, taking the sales professional out of the field and at significant costs in travel and time. In the online training environment, salespeople can complete training at any time, from any computer. Each learning module provides personalized feedback on their performance, while allowing companies to track how their salespeople are performing throughout training.
