AskPatty.com, Inc. began as a website with one goal in mind to help women feel more comfortable when buying or repairing a vehicle. Since 2006 our flagship product, Certified Female Friendly®, has been training dealerships, independent service centers, tire dealers, quick lubes, and car washes. 6000 locations have been certified on the best practices to communicate effectively with women. Today, we have taken the philosophy that launched Certified Female Friendly® and expanded it into a suite of Certifications that touch every aspect of an automotive business. Helmed by a panel of superhero consultants from across the industry and we call this suite UpShift™.
