However, Scomat is not complacent. Scomat recognises that in the new paradigm of increased and even global competition it has to constantly review and push standards and services to new levels customers demand. Indeed, competitive conditions demand that a product gets more done, in less time, at the lowest possible cost.
Since the creation of Scimat in 2000, Scomat's regional dealership for Mauritius & Reunion, Scomat's customers have benefited from the combined strength of both Scomat and Scime. This new strategic partnership is growing to give Scomat immense flexibility, a vital attribute for success. Caterpillar dealers strive to form strong working relationships with Cat product owners. Scomat has invested in a Product Support and Marketing department to achieve precisely this objective.
The Customer Care and other programmes are unique and strengthen Scomat's reputation for superior Product Support. More importantly, they help Scomat's products work harder, last longer and cost less over their lifetime.
Our people are our most valuable assets. Scomat truly believe in this philosophy. Hence, as part of our career development programme, a dedicated competence center (officially registered with the Government) has been set up as a means to continuously train and develop not only our people but also our customers.
The Academy is led by a full time trainer to ensure that a training culture is embedded within our organisation. We also have a full time Truck Driving instructor who regularly conducts training with the clientele to ensure that efficient and eco-driving techniques are applied. He also contributes to road-testing of trucks in workshop.
Through this, we ensure a continuous upgrade of skills and knowhow in our product lines and that our people are well equipped to embrace new technologies
