To achieve certified status, their personnel completed online 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 Gary Baermann of Autosys, Inc.

An Certified Female Friendly(R) Service Center creates an inviting and comfortable environment where women feel welcome. They guarantee that the experience of repairing and maintaining a vehicle will be a pleasant one.

"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 "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(R) virtual interactive training design and functionality are another industry first from, the company, which initially developed the most comprehensive solution available to automobile dealers and service centers for engaging, selling, servicing, and retaining women customers.
