“With support from Autoskills international we made a very effective investment in a very short time in Bodyshop here in Albania. Patrick, especially, did a professional job on this project and with his help we were able to find the best products with competitive prices. Now that everything is at its place our productivity in Bodyshop is increased by 30% since investment is done.“
“Autoskills International guided and supported us through a lengthy and detailed process to become a Jaguar Land Rover Authorised Structural Repairer. Patrick’s Industry experience made the process much easier for us by maintaining constant contact and providing expert advice. I have no hesitation recommending Autoskills International to anyone in the Industry.”
“I began to work directly with Patrick and Autoskills International in January 2021, when we re-started the discussions of assessing and appointing other bodyshop facilities within our JLR dealer network. Each meeting, done via Teams, regular meetings with each retailer were well organized/structured (even it seems so easy to do it):
- focusing on two-three topics each time
- with clear and feasible deadlines
- who is doing what by when
Patrick was able to keep a positive pressure on the retailers, always giving proper advice or support on their questions/ raised issues. This professional behaviour & approach enabled one of our retailers to complete the audit in just 4 months from the start of the process (at that time a very nice surprise even for Patrick!).
So, all in all, I recommend Patrick as a person who is easy to do business with, well prepared on with area of activity, reliable and trustful.”
“Autoskills knowledge in the automotive industry, especially the bodyshop business, is deep and profound. In our case, team members have been pivotal in professionally helping us to establish and run a structural bodyshop according to Jaguar Land Rover’s high standards.
I recommend Autoskills with no reservation.”
“With Autoskills International as an international team of consultants, we have been able to expand the “Bodyshop” business area very successfully in the European Importer Region and deepen our qualifications in recent years. Autoskills International has always been a reliable and flexible partner for us. We would like to thank you for the many years of good cooperation and wish the company many satisfied customers in the future.”
“Autoskills International completed a transformation of our market regarding Body & Paint and where I was sceptical in particular how communication lines would operate but I have to say they were always available to us at our working time and did a really good job with visits and communicating directly with Body Shops and Retailers.
In particular Patrick certainly taught me a lot about the Business and I would have no hesitation in recommending Autoskills International (Patrick).”
“The National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC) engaged Auto Skills International to undertake a variety of time sensitive, expert technical and stakeholder engagement projects since 2011. Development and delivery of national training for the damage assessment criteria for the classification of heavy vehicle (HV) and passenger light commercial (PLC) written off vehicles (WOVR) along with regular audits are completed to an exceptional standard, maintaining a constant and consistent level of awareness in the industry.
Patrick McDonnell’s pragmatic approach and reputation within our stakeholder base is highly valued & recommended.”
“Auto Skill International team, represented by Patrick McDonnell and Wallis Adria Customer Service team have had quite long co-operation in period late 2020 until spring 2022 in terms of body shop certification of Jaguar Land Rover authorized retailers in Adria and Hungary.
Despite huge distance and especially zone time difference, Patrick was doing excellent job in order to support all of our retailers in two importer markets, especially by understanding all circumstances and environment at each retailer, but also implementing high level standards given by JLR.
Not only this, but Patrick shows very strong expertise on general body shop techniques, but also high level of knowledge of automotive industry in our region.
Auto Skill International and Patrick would have our strong recommendation to any other potential party who might need this kind of service, as due to very high satisfactory level of the work done by this party, we consider Auto Skill International and Patrick himself as strong players in this part of automotive industry.”
“The discussions held with Patrick helped us in finding the best solutions considering our existing infrastructure, together we managed to identify the best tools and equipment to suit all our needs, also all the steps needed for JLR aluminium structural repairs accreditation was much quicker than anticipated.
I can describe the collaboration with Patrick McDonnell through the Auto Skills International platform as exceptional.”
