This company’s technology allows a dealer to give a tour of a vehicle without the customer setting foot in a showroom. The salesperson — perhaps an employee of Volkswagen, which has brought in CitNow across its UK dealership network — uses CitNow’s app to record a personalised video of a car and sends it to the client. Mechanics use a separate app to update owners on work needed on their vehicle, and another allows car owners to film their car and get a valuation. Under the Wokingham firm’s founder, Andrew Howells, 55, sales hit £5.7m last year.
