Company Overview:

CitNOW is the UK’s largest provider of personalised video presentation services to the automotive industry. CitNOW currently operates in 38 countries, including the UK, across Europe, South Africa, North America, Japan and the Far East.

There are over 7,250 live installations of CitNOW worldwide, uploading over 35,000 video communications per day, providing personal sales and workshop presentations to customers. We work with 93 of the UK’s top AM100 dealer groups and have 40 manufacturer programmes operating across the world, providing them with the opportunity to sell cars and parts more profitably and deliver higher levels of customer satisfaction.

The CitNOW personal video services are used by dealers to help customers make easier decisions when buying their next car, because we’re all busier these days and with increased reliance on the internet for everything; a video of the car you’re interested in, delivered to your inbox, is a key differentiator in the purchase process.

CitNOW videos are also sent every day by aftersales technicians, who use video to provide detailed condition reports, pointing out what is working fine and what needs your attention. These ‘video experiences’ are very popular which is why they have introduced the free CitNOW consumer ‘Trade In’ app; a ‘one video’ app providing the same professional presentation when you’re thinking of selling your car.
