Daniels Chevyland Launches Female Friendly Dealer Website
An Online Car Purchasing Experience Designed Exclusively For Women
(Colorado Springs, CO) March 19, 2008 – Daniels Chevyland announced the launch of their Certified Female Friendly private label website reinforcing their commitment to the Ask Patty Dealer Program. This latest design integrates seamlessly with the existing dealership website for their Chevrolet lines and provides a platform 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 Daniels Chevyland website. The 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.
The site provides a host of features to assist women through the automobile purchasing process including the often time-consuming or unpleasant credit and financing process. In response to this, the site incorporates a narrated credit application and online pre-approval process, allowing women the opportunity to get pre-approved for a loan before visiting the dealership, ultimately saving them valuable time.
“With the ever-increasing importance of reaching and communicating effectively with women online, our certified female friendly sites are the perfect resource for us to establish credibility, increase communication, develop loyalty and support women throughout the entire car buying experience," stated Elizabeth Daniels, 4th general owner and General Manager of Daniels Chevyland.
The new Online Chat Icon allows dynamic interaction between female consumers with questions or concerns and a representative from the dealership. In today’s busy world women are looking for timely responses, and this exchange of dialog allows instant results for women and an opportunity for the dealership to form a relationship based on honesty, respect and a sharing of expertise.
“Since launching the program, we have seen an increased number of satisfied female consumers and we understand the power and influence those customers have over our future business,” says Daniels.
The new website design and functionality are an industry first. “Currently most automotive websites are designed by men for men and do not address the needs of women,” stated Peter Martin, Founder and CEO of AskPatty.com. “The Ask Patty Female Friendly website is designed specifically for women and provides the tools and resources most requested by women.”

About Daniels Chevyland:
Back in 1929 when Cady L. Daniels purchased the Chevrolet franchise in Colorado Springs, Colorado, he could not have known that he was starting something that would last through four generations of the Daniels family and remain strong into the twenty-first century. Cady Daniels made it his mission to “delight the customer” throughout their dealership experience. That tradition continues today, nearly 90 years later.
The Daniels’ dealership survived the challenges of the Great Depression and WWII to become Southern Colorado’s largest Chevy dealer and only commercial dealer. In the fall of 1996, Cady's grandson Bill Daniels and his great-granddaughter Elizabeth Daniels procured the franchise.
As the new millennium approached, the Daniels were faced with continuing their tradition of offering quality customer service in a location that they knew they had literally outgrown. In February of 1999, the Daniels, along with all of their employees, celebrated the official opening of the new dealership, Daniels Chevyland, in part of a large and diversified autoplex known as Motor City.
The newer facility has allowed the service operation to expand, increasing service efficiency and customer satisfaction. Display parking spaces for retail and commercial vehicles increased from 300 to over 700. Two oversized bays have been designated for servicing medium duty trucks. The parts department features a handicap friendly counter, a convenient drive-up window for dealer pick-ups, and a specialty retail shop.
Daniels Chevyland takes pride in offering the ultimate experience for its patrons with exceptional attention being given to all customer areas. Features ranging from a comfortably furnished library for adults and a glass-enclosed play area for children, complete with videos and specialty toys, to a six-person golf cart for transporting shoppers around the property. The business center is equipped with relaxing ergonomic chairs, telephones, power for lap tops and Gateway Profile flat screen computers. For fitness on the fly customers can check out the exercise facility, geared with a Schwinn stationary bicycle, TrimUp treadmill, Para Body Bench with steel free weights and a Fitball. An outdoor patio, complimentary continental breakfast, coffee, juice, water and fresh fruit featured daily round out the many amenities, ensuring that every guest has an ultimate experience when visiting Daniels Chevyland.
Daniels Chevyland enriches its community through its sponsorship and support of the following organizations: Pikes Peak Therapeutic Riding Center, Pikes Peak United Way, American Heart Association, Ride for the Brand Ranch Rodeo, USAF Academy Athletic Department, Ducks Unlimited, Inc., Carlson Driving Academy, and Colorado Springs Corvette Club.
