Discover how Danny Cooksey’s entrepreneurial spirit ignited the innovative journey of Vehicles in Video, a finalist at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023, transforming the automotive industry one virtual video garage at a time.
Danny Cooksey grew up surrounded by entrepreneurship, with his father owning several businesses. This environment fostered Cooksey’s own entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. He knew that he didn’t want to work for anyone else – he wanted to build something of his own.
In 2020, Cooksey’s entrepreneurial drive led to a lightbulb moment. Stuck at home during the COVID-19 lockdowns and struggling to provide detailed videos of vehicles to customers remotely in his role selling cars, Cooksey saw an opportunity. He envisioned a platform that would allow car dealerships to store videos of all their vehicles in a virtual garage and empower sales executives to respond to customers instantly from their desks. This vision ultimately became Vehicles in Video, a video solution for automotive dealerships that launched in 2020 and began trading in 2022.
Vehicles in Video tackles the daily challenges faced by sales executives in dealerships. The platform’s video storage capabilities eliminate the need for sales executives to disrupt the dealership forecourt to capture new videos for each customer enquiry about a specific vehicle. The Vehicles in Video Sales App also allows sales executives to personalize their video responses by adding voiceovers to highlight key features or address a customer’s specific questions.
In just two years, Cooksey has already achieved significant milestones, signing some of the largest independent and franchised dealer groups in the UK as customers. Looking ahead, Cooksey aims to establish Vehicles in Video as the premier video solution for the automotive industry.
Cooksey’s vision and perseverance in the face of a global crisis demonstrate the resilience of the entrepreneurial spirit. His innovative solution is transforming the way automotive dealerships engage with customers. It is this spirit of innovation and achievement that has earned Cooksey a place as a finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023.
