What do you like best?

The platform is great. I had one student tell me he roleplayed a certain scenario 20 times because he kept watching himself and didn't like it. You just don't get that in a classroom. I have received quite a few comments just like that. We have ended up using it a lot more for home office training as opposed to our field sales force as well. With all of the work from home we have been forced into, this has become a go to tool for on-boarding home office people which we didn't plan on when we purchased the tool. The support from Rehearsal has been awesome as well. Very professional documents and help in getting us off to a great start. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to do with the platform but it is getting the mentors to do their part of the process can be challenging. I do wish it was cheaper per seat. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It has been better than I actually expected. Wasn't sure the students would really get into the role playing like they said they would. The most difficult part has been to get the mentors to leave meaningful feedback and to actually grade the student. Meaningful feedback is more than just saying great job. We actually found the students wanted to be critiqued so they could get better. It really all hinges on the mentors and getting their buy in and why it is important for them to do their part. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Home office on-boarding virtually, increasing our sales teams skills. It has really upgraded our virtual training courses by giving this role play options between classes. We use it as a student introduction to all other student joining virtually that saves us from having to do it live during the training event. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ability to practice/perfect your pitch and receive feedback from coaches via the platform is excellent. The platform is intuitive and accessible globally. Further to that, we have received excellent support from the Rehearsal team who are responsive and wonderful to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some product improvements that would be useful. Ability to pause and continue the video recording so candidates can submit in iterations. Ability to save drafts of the rehearsals and submit the best version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We use Rehearsal for the induction and training of our new employees. The trainers use Rehearsal as a support to practice conversations Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since Rehearsal is constantly being developed we are very satisfied with the current status Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

as written above, our trainers use Rehearsal especially for sales talks. These are discussed in a personal meeting and are then to be practiced by the new employees until the next face-to-face training. Until now, the trainer had no control over whether the new employee actively practiced. This is now different with Rehearsal Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The platform helps our new reps practice verbalizing their message, and it also allows for remote coaching. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the functionality, like all platforms, takes some time and practice to develop comfort. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As an organization, we have benefited from utilizing the platform. Originally, we planned on using the platform strictly for new hire training for recording role plays and certification and then uploading them so that the managers could view them immediately and provide feedback to their reps. That process worked well, but it also gave us opportunity to identify any potential challenges, one of which was ensuring a strong internet connection when uploading 15 minute videos. We also found that if the ipads, where we recorded the videos, went into sleep mode while uploading the videos, the upload process would not always complete. When that happened, re-uploading the video also seemed to have some challenges. As an administrator for the platform, I could still upload the videos, but when we moved to SSO (single sign on), I lost that capability.

We have now branched out to utilizing the platform for other virtual coaching opportunities, including responding to objections, developing technical clarity and developing presentation skills. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of our training is now being done remotely, so Rehearsal has been a tool to help vary and enhance role play that we would typically conduct in a classroom. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are able to connect mentors from all over with our learners. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is difficult to get the learners to submit their responses in a timely manner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think you should absolutely think about using Rehearsal for implementing any sales training or mentorship opportunities. The ability for mentors to interact with learners directly is so valuable. There are many videos available to us from the Rehearsal team. I particularly like the elevator pitch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The program is helpful to organize thoughts. I've been doing sales a long time and realize I have been doing some of these skills, but reaffirms what I'm doing and making it more effortless in my presentations. Also getting feedback from my manager. Then you can review again to confirm what he had observed and his suggestions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like doing the videos at first, but now it doesn't both me as long as it loads into the system correctly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is very helpful whether you are new to sales or have been doing it for a long time. Makes you evaluate each customer and what level you are with them and how can you improve the level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I would like to see a concurrent license type as an option instead of per user.

I struggle with how their structure of nesting their video (scenario) in a program and then an assignment is configured. Too many layers to this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Reputable company with great customer focus. They are continuously looking at ways to enhance their product. I would recommend this vendor to others without a doubt! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Currently we are leveraging this tool in our new hire trainings within the sales organization. This tool is a great aid in our virtual trainings to help increase speed to competency. This includes word tracks, handling objections through the use of role plays, and selling best practices. It's great to see the progress a rep makes from one assignment to the next. You really can see how they are progressing as they move through the scenarios for each video. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Rehearsal has been easy to use since day 1. Ease of use from both an admin and a user side. Users can use mobile devices which gives them the ability to complete scenarios at their convenience. Reporting is also easy to use and gives great detail. Overall, the platform is very intuitive and easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The platform could be better if it provided a real time role play option, to be able to record both mentor and user in a coaching situation. Other things that could be improved are the bugs in the mobile platform, but they are working on it and have fixes coming soon. (eg: rearranging scenarios alphabetically not by order designed). It would be nice if the platform would allow for branching or a more realistic back and forth similar to a real time ability. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it for basic onboarding and conversational role play practices for our new sales people. Elevator Pitches, Objection Handling, Position with client benefits are just some examples. . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I think Rehearsal has nailed the balance of having enough features to make their platform robust but not so many features that it gets clunky, overwhelming and ultimately not used. It is easy to throw in one more feature or expand capabilities only to find users migrating away. Rehearsal has mastered this. I can set up assignments quickly and provide coaching and feedback in minutes. Coachees can easily access and do assignments without the frustration of the platform getting in the way. Bravo Rehearsal! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This isn't specific to Rehearsal but more to this kind of technology - cyber security is real and a concern of clients. While Rehearsal has definitely done their homework in this area, some clients are just concerned about security issues in general and that may get in the way of a great tool being implemented. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do a demo and if you can, get in there and play with platform. You will quickly see how easy it is to use for the administrator, coach and coachee. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Rehearsal to pull through concepts introduced in our live or remote training and coaching offerings. This helps the concepts stick and turn them into habits. We have historically been doing this via remote coaching but this asynchronous ability makes it much easier to execute on the pull through. The benefits we have experienced is that our clients to be very interested in this offering to help participants get more out of the training. And participants are on board because they can do the assignments when it works for their schedule and from wherever they are. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are putting an end to the era of "event-based" flavor of the year sales training parades. Sales is a profession. Professionals continually engage in practice to attain peak performance levels. Most sales leaders want to coach more but have little time. With Rehearsal and our microlearning modules, they can augment the precious little time they do have with virtual coaching.

Combining role playing/practice and Channel content provides a highly adaptable and customizable way to engage salespeople Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Users/Creators get caught up in the process of setting up Assignments (create a scenario then Publish; create a program - then publish; create an assignment- then publish). Partly training and user lack of skill. But, perhaps there will be a more seamless way to do it at some point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rehearsal is making it possible to capture highly experienced rep knowledge before it lost forever (before they retire!); just-enough-learning by posting relevant content for learning and communicating using Channels; and virtual coaching to augment field coaching.

What do you like best?

Rehearsal doesn't close the feedback loop after one volley, but instead, allows for iterative back-and-forth commentary and second, third, fourth tries between learner and coach. This is a lot more valuable than a one-and-done feedback cycle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In a world of bloated technology stacks, I would only wish for Rehearsal to also be a content repository, call recorder, and LMS. Having your Team jump in and out of so many tools as a daily habit is....unrealistic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get your Teams to embrace immediate feedback as a necessary (THE necessary) ingredient to continuous development. Then use Rehearsal to root the habit down into daily/weekly practice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love the repetitiveness of the role play. The reps desire to 'get it right' before submitting, forces them to go through the role play more than once, which ultimately improves their delivery. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As an administrator, it's not as intuitive as I'd like it to be. I had a hard time creating my first couple of assignments because I couldn't figure out if I needed to create an assignment first or a scenario. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly recommend this product Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rehearsal has solved my lack of time for live training. Through Rehearsal, I am able to role play certify new sales reps on three products that I can't cover during live training because there's not enough time. My reps graduate from Initial Sales Training, go home and have one month to complete the Rehearsal certification. The benefits of the platform are countless: I can record myself delivering a presentation on a new reprint or marketing piece, then assign it, along with a scenario to my sales force. They review the presentation, then use the reprint to role play. It really builds confidence in the reps and allows for immediate transfer of knowledge after my presentation.

What do you like best?

To prepare our sales team to support a large training initiative, this platform can support everyone being involved. The SME group, management and training groups can comment on sales team member performance and content. We also use the platform for onboarding. Presentations delivered by new sales team members help their management understand the proficiency of new hires. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Our large presentations require PowerPoint. Rehearsal is only able to support PowerPoint view while presenting in a computer format at this time. Our entire sales team utilizes iPads. No computers are issued anymore. This makes the delivery and review process challenging. Presenters and reviewers have to reference a different device to see the PPT. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rehearsal helps us solve for, "I'm best when I wing it." or "I really do better thinking on my feet." The assignment of Rehearsal practice presentations forces the sales team to work on their presentation in advance vs rehearsing in front of the retailers. The sales team members, for the most part, groan about this requirement and in the same breath comment that it was better to start on their presentations earlier than last minute.

We have a remote sales force, and only get together once per year for a national meeting; therefore, this allows sales leadership to keep a pulse on the field and provide opportunities to address opportunities as they arise, rather than waiting for a big meeting or spending thousands to get everyone together.
