Created by faculty, students and RNMKRS.ORG developers, this is a program that allows students trained in sales to demonstrate their skills and knowledge of the 5 Step Sales Process by interacting with an artificially intelligent customer bot in a simulated sales meeting.
In the RNMKRS Virtual Sales Competition, which happens twice a year, students from over 50 colleges and universities around the country and Canada compete to be tops on the leaderboard and for visibility with top employers in the sales field.
Our very early Proof of Concept is on display here for public use. The role play setting is in a Pizza shop where players are challenged to help the customer get what she wants - a slice with two toppings. Do this by asking her the right questions and overcoming her food allergy issue. It's short and basic but you'll get the idea.
Colleges and universities who want to participate in the next Competition in November should go to RNMKRS.ORG and contact us - we'll get back to you.
We appreciate all constructive feedback. If you just did poorly in the competition we hope you will refrain from complaining here. Thanks!

Ratings and Reviews
The worst programmed app I’ve seen
This app has not AI (advanced artificial intelligence) that they say it has. It literally has the worst programmed script that the “AI” talks to you about and then only looks for key words that you say to keep moving through the role play. Never have I seen a more obnoxious and disgusting piece of technology be used for a grade in a college level class. The class should be ashamed of even using this app and the company should not exist, if this is their best. The “AI” can not understand most words that are spoken. It will not register if you have an accent too. Plus the speech recognition software is taken from Siri, so they didn’t even make the most complicated program themselves. Overall this app and company are trash, if they are willing to put out an app that isn’t nearly complete and get schools to make it a competition and for a grade, they should fail as a company in the next year. Disgraceful
Perfect practice makes perfect
As a young salesperson I didn’t see the benefit of the RNMKRS competition until I found myself studying for another competition. Especially with the new practice rounds being broken down into the seven steps of the sales process, I found myself studying the sales process thoroughly until it was muscle memory to speak on.
Yes, the AI Bot does not understand every word, and yes, it does have limited communication skills, however this competition should really be approached more as an opportunity to PRACTICE the sales process and perfect certain questions you will need to ask the Bot. It is a unique opportunity and I do encourage young salespeople to embark on this challenge, and soak up what you learn about selling with RNMKRS!!
Can’t believe I’m getting graded on this
Like someone else said, I feel bad writing a review on this as I know they’ve worked hard on this. It is very frustrating to use. Not really graded on how well you can sell, but how much you practice. No sales meeting is going to go like this is scripted. I can’t believe this is a capstone project worth 30% of my grade in a college class. I don’t see how this benefits us at all. The bot doesn’t understand half of what you say. He repeats himself multiple times after you’ve already explained the features to him. Takes hours and hours of practice to find the exact sentence to say to make the bot move on to say the right things. It’s a cool concept but absolutely crazy this is a graded component. Needs years of work before this can actually be a useful way to introduce a real sales meeting.
