 Through the Sarvottam Skill Contest, team members operating in the sales function are trained on product know-how, technological advancements within the product, soft skills and understanding customer requirement. The training module in service is far more extensive, as it acts to provide the fundamental principles for technical problem solving, customer satisfaction and loyalty, thus ensuring our service advisors and technicians deliver on the Volkswagen promise of enhanced service and peace-of-mind ownership experience.
