A quiz bee segment was held during the elimination phase for all participants in their respective categories. For the twenty-four Service Technicians who competed, a written examination was likewise conducted, after which roleplaying activities through troubleshooting and finding of technical and manmade faults in test vehicles laid out at the competition venue followed. The top Service Technicians will represent the country in the upcoming 2018 regional Maztech Competition to be held in Bangkok Thailand.

Meanwhile, twelve Service Advisors and twelve Dealer Customer Relations Center representatives underwent roleplaying scenarios to assess their customer handling skills. Parts Advisors and Warranty Administrators representing the participating dealerships were also on hand with their skills on the parts process, forecasting and part numbering along with their knowledge on warranty process, scope and limitation, tested and scored under various theoretical and practical applications.

This year’s competition is also the first time a search for the Sales Consultant who adhered best to the Mazda standard customer walk-around process was made. The top five, out of ten competing Sales Consultants, represented their dealerships in the final sales walk-around competition. The inclusion of Sales Consultants in this year’s Maztech competition highlights Mazda Philippines’ thrust to raise the standards of its dealer-customer experience by raising the quality of the whole customer handling process across the network.
