San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2009 -- A+ Japanese Auto Repair is pleased to announce they have completed AskPatty.com's Certified Female Friendly training and is now San Carlos' first Certified Female Friendly service center group. To achieve certified status, their personnel completed 19 modules of online interactive training on how to better meet the expectations of the woman consumer.

"Up until now, like many automotive businesses, we thought the obvious goal was to ensure that women were treated the same as men. Through the AskPatty program, we've learned that treating women the same as men does not necessarily yield the ideal experience for women. This may not sound profound, but with an increased awareness of what elements women seek in a positive automotive servicing experience, our service centers are better prepared to meet and exceed the expectations of our female customers," stated Angela Silva, Marketing & Business Development Coordinator, A+ Japanese Auto Repair, Inc.

A+ Japanese Auto Repair Along with the certification, A+ Japanese Auto Repair has enhanced its website to cater more to women, thereby reinforcing their commitment to the Ask Patty Program. This latest design integrates seamlessly to effectively deliver online information and services to female consumers.

The new website can easily be found and accessed utilizing the Certified Female Friendly web icon on the existing A+ Japanese Auto Repair website. A+ Japanese Auto Repair's Female Friendly site is an extension of the main site, with many of the same features simply presented in a more appealing and inviting format for the female audience.

"Women are not the same as men, and they do not base their consumer decisions in the same way as men. Business Week reports that women make over 80 percent of the buying decisions in U.S. households today. In effect, they have become nearly every family's chief purchasing officer," says Jody DeVere, President and CEO of AskPatty.com "Businesses that do not change their approach to communicate more effectively with women will get left behind and leave themselves open to being over-taken by their competitors."

The new Certified Female Friendly virtual interactive training design and functionality are another industry first from AskPatty.com, the company, which initially developed the most comprehensive solution available to automobile retailers and service centers for engaging, selling, servicing, and retaining women customers. The Ask Patty web sites are the first designed specifically for women and provide the tools and resources most requested by women.
