The Service Advisor (SA) category highlights service reception and delivery processes, including advanced diagnosis, work-up recommendations, repair works, releasing of the vehicle, and booking the next periodic maintenance visit. The category also demonstrated the use of state-of-the-art equipment that accurately identifies issues with vehicles and provides recommendations for repairs. Mr. Elijah Dave Villan of Honda Cars Makati, Inc. (HCMI) raised the Philippine banner high as the SA category champion, besting contenders from other countries. Mr. Villan has been with HCMI for seven (7) years where he started his career as a Technician back in 2016.
“The skills competition is among Honda’s initiatives to ensure superior customer satisfaction through our Dealers and their dedicated staff who are our partners. Through national, regional, and global contests, dealer associates advance their technical and service skills. The program also gives them more joy at work because it widens their perspective on the importance of what they do, and how they genuinely help promote quality and safety while providing service, said Ms. Rie Miyake, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. President.
