Consumers want faster and hassle-free resolution and that can only happen with skill upgradation. To address this aspect, we have introduced the Technical Training Center for Garages in our Navi Mumbai Office. The center is one of a kind and has been developed with an aim to expand our technical expertise to the personnel working at garages.”He also mentioned that, “Our attempt is to be able to impart the correct technical knowledge to the garages so that repairs are made appropriately. As a next step, we are working on Mobile Technical Training Centre so that we reach customer at their localities.”
