McHenry, IL — February 22, 2011  - The Raybestos™ Rewards Program pumps its educational muscle… giving technicians an even stronger selling advantage. In addition to the FREE branded POS kit and automatic enrollment in the “Gimme a Reward” box top program, professional repair facilities and their technicians now receive FREE online training. The two current training modules coach technicians in providing business-building customer service when performing brake and chassis repair work.

Free consumer rebate programs are automatically mailed directly to the participating technicians and Tech Service Bulletins are e-mailed on a monthly basis. The technicians even receive a FREE listing on the dealer locator on the Raybestos brakes web site.

“The items in the Raybestos Rewards kit, as well as the tools sent throughout the year, support installers with problem-solving information and business-building messaging,” said Georgianne Dickey, Raybestos® Brand Marketing Manager, Affinia Global Brake & Chassis. The complementary kit includes Raybestos brand POS materials for the shop.
