Nissan GB adopts CitNOW across entire dealer network

Time 5 years ago

CITNOW has been adopted by the entire Nissan GB dealer network, with each dealer sending out an average of 110 videos a month.

The system has been white-labelled by Nissan as eVision and has seen its top workshops deliver more than 600 customer videos a month with an optimum view rate of over 80 per cent. The success of eVision has now resulted in the launch of the technology into all of Nissan’s new and used sales departments – spanning a total of 202 dealerships.

In the first quarter of 2016 alone Nissan workshops distributed more than 60,000 individual videos to customers, meaning they are on track to deliver a quarter of a million by the end of the year.


UK sales director at Nissan GB Darren Payne said: ‘The customer benchmarks have changed, and we firmly believe that video is the way forward to build that fundamental trust and achieve maximum customer satisfaction.

‘The results and the responses we have been receiving from our workshop network about the use of video are outstanding, so we’re thrilled to have eVision available now for our new and used sales departments as well.’

Nissan GB aftersales director Mike Thompson was responsible for the eVision roll-out and added: ‘The eVision product is now firmly embedded in the process in our workshops, supporting communication with customers and enhancing their experience.

‘We’ve received great feedback from customers and dealers since we introduced it nationally in 2014.’


CitNOW’s global sales director Gordon Grant commented: ‘The journey that Nissan GB has been on with us over the 12 months is very familiar to us; the way the product directly impacts on the relationship the brand has with its customers is usually most immediately evident in the workshop application.

‘Once companies see how personalised video goes beyond amplifying the bottom line and has a positive effect on less tangible things like customer loyalty and retention as well. They quickly realise that this technology is something they must have.’
