AutohausAZ Wins 3 Bronze Medals for Customer Service

AutohausAZ has built its 30-year reputation on professional integrity, personalized and friendly customer service and high-quality auto parts. A large part of the Company's success comes from treating customers with the utmost respect while also providing a unique personalized, caring touch in every customer interaction.

One of the Customer Service Bronze winners, Tony Kopas, had this to say, "Here at AutohausAZ we push ourselves to provide the best customer service possible on a daily basis. That kind of industry-leading service takes place before the phone even rings. Being a highly motivated, detailed individual is paramount to success."

AutohausAZ stands out from the competition by internally performing all critical functions - designing and maintaining a user-friendly, customer-intuitive website & parts lookup, selecting & inventorying quality brands, personally handling all customer calls and emails, and processing customer requests & orders from start-to-finish. AutohausAZ feels it is not in the customer's or the Company's best interests to lose control over the performance of critical customer service functions and, unlike its competitors, does not "outsource" any of these areas. This has allowed AutohausAZ to consistently provide the personalized touch that its customers have come to expect.

AutohausAZ's sales professionals each received a bronze medal for their outstanding, professional customer service.

This isn't the first time AutohausAZ and its staff are recognized in one of the four Stevie® award competitions. In the 2009 Stevie® American Business Awards, AutohausAZ was honored as a Sales Team of the Year Finalist. In the 2009 Stevie® Sales and Customer Service Awards, AutohausAZ was selected as the international winner (Gold Medal) of the Online Sales Team of the Year, as well as one of the three finalists for the E-Commerce Customer Service Award. And, in the 2008 Stevie® Awards for Women, AutohausAZ was selected a finalist in the Website of the Year competition.

Winners in the Sixth Annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service, an international competition recognizing excellence in disciplines that are vital to business success, were unveiled at a gala ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 27.
