We faced very tough competition from strong teams who were very much more experienced than us. In facing the Grand final challenge in Södertälje, we need to further increase our technical knowledge to perfection in order to be the Champion of Top Team Global 2023 and Champion for our customers!” Muhamad Amirsyazwan, Team Leader/Workshop Manager, SMY Ipoh.
Top Team is a global competition for professional service teams within the Scania service network. The competition requires a high level of technical knowledge, team spirit and discipline among service technicians, parts specialists and service advisors as participants. It is brains, technological skills and teamwork that characterise the service personnel who Scania recruit and develop over the years. Essentially, Scania says, these traits should be evident in all the qualifying teams while winning teams are those who demonstrate a superior level to secure the Top Team title. The format of the competition follows daily work patterns with the most essential objective being to satisfy the needs of customers.
This competition is seen as a way of recognising the importance of service personnel to be the best and top of their profession. The teams would increase their knowledge about Scania’s products and services and strengthen collaboration among service, parts and service advisor personnel. Scania says the ultimate benefactors are the customers and heavy vehicle industry.
“I couldn’t describe how proud I feel of this team and I am sure we all share this sentiment. Credit to them as they have put a lot of effort to prepare and compete with other teams from the various business units who have proven winning history. Coming out on top is a clear demonstration of not only their technical knowledge but team cohesiveness and tenacity,” said Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia.
This generation of technicians and the future ones are expected to drive real change in line with the transport industry undergoing a technological shift. Scania believes Top Team members would have the unique opportunity to affect and implement the technology needed to create a sustainable transport system.
