“I would like to personally recognize Jody DeVere and Ask Patty as industry leaders in marketing to women. FIAT of Austin’s DNA is built around the promotion and protection of women clients and employees. After carefully analyzing all our options for partners, we chose Ask Patty hands down. Jody and her staff have exceeded my expectations. The training is cutting edge and relevant. My sales team enjoyed working through the modules and had very positive feedback. We have seen the ROI of our investment, in the Ask Patty program. Working with the Chrysler Corporation for 20 plus years I am excited to see they are entertaining the prospect of platform dealership training.”

“As an Ask Patty Certified Dealer since early 2010, we have created awareness in our dealership for superior customer service. Since our inclusion, we have over 80% of our Customer Facing Associates Ask Patty Certified which has created open minded attitudes towards all of our customers. We realize that over 90% of the decisions to purchase and/or service a vehicle are influenced by women, so having ongoing training with solidifies that message. Realizing that women are more than 10 times likely to review a business for a positive experience, but also a negative one as well, Ask Patty has given us the tools to succeed. Most importantly, Ask Patty provides a safe and comfortable environment for women to search, research, investigate, & review anything and everything related to the Automotive Industry. Whether it is the use of the Ask Patty online community and blogs, or the personal candid reviews that are posted on various products, Ask Patty simply works!”
