Founded under the rain clouds in the Pacific Northwest, ASURA recognized a gap in the market. Companies had a difficult time ensuring their employees were well equipped to offer their premier services and packages and needed a specialist to help provide the training, coaching, and resources to offer optimal customer care.
At ASURA, we don’t just provide great resources and offerings, we provide true peace of mind. When making a major automotive purchase, it is easy for stress to run high and tensions to develop between consumers and dealer retailers. We set out to remove that stress from the world, and create the tools, training assets, and packages to empower and assure both the dealer and the buyer.
ASURA isn’t a piece of software or a manual that sits in a glove compartment. It is a true helping hand that guides employees to be empowered, knowledgeable, and driven. We believe in transparency at every step, and making sure our client’s team has every tool available at their disposal to generate peak performance.
Expertise creates a sense of pride, and we aim to ensure every employee, both our own and our client’s, has a sense of empowerment. Customer needs shift quickly, and it can be easy to fall behind. At ASURA, we do the heavy lifting and bring the expertise and relevancy to ensure your clients and customers have the information and assurance to buy with confidence. The relationship between our clients and their customers is the key to our client’s long-term success.
ASURA represents a true extension of every client’s business. Whether it is training resources on modern service packages or having a trained expert on standby, we don’t think of our customers as clients, we think of them as a family. At ASURA, we take pride knowing we go the extra mile to equip your team for success.
