There’s only a week now until the debut of the UK’s biggest ever Aftermarket show at the NEC and we’re starting to get really excited!

With over 10,000 visitors expected over the three days, our team are looking forward to meeting lots of lovely independent businesses keen to explore the savings to be had from running their garage in the cloud.

If you’re planning on going to the show, you’ll be pleased to hear that CarVue are joining the 550+ other exhibitors spread across three halls of the NEC.

We’ll be hosting demo’s, giving away freebies and we’ll even have a special show offer available just for the event.​

Pop in and see us!

We would be delighted if you popped by our stand and came in for a chat about anything and everything CarVue. We’ll be on hand with demo’s of the app and it will be the perfect opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about it.

While CarVue is quite a self-service application in that you can sign up and start using it yourself if you want, we understand that sometimes garages want to meet the team behind a program and ask any questions face-to-face. Which is exactly why we’re at this show!

Carl Lightfoot Automechanika talk

Carl Lightfoot, our CEO, was asked by the show’s organisers to come and deliver a 30 min seminar on how you can get more for less by centralising and simplifying your garage management, so that will be a good one to catch if you get a chance (on Wednesday at 3PM in the Aftermarket seminar theatre)

Where and when



The CarVue stand is located in Hall 11, right by the Aftermarket Seminar theatre. You can check out our location on the floorplan here.

The show will be running between 9:30 am and 4:30pm on these days:

Tuesday 7th June
Wednesday 8th June
Thursday 9th June

We look forward to seeing you there!

Feel the benefit of cloud software

Cloud applications have revolutionised software packages for many industries over the past few years, so we think it was about time that the motor industry got to feel the benefits.

Explains Alex Knight, CarVue’s Marketing Director, “Cloud services like CarVue are easy to get started and free to try out. They offer fantastic peace-of-mind for garage owners as providers like us take care of the IT burden, with garage’s important vehicle, customer and financial information backed up every few minutes in a super secure environment.”

“Some of the biggest benefits garages can feel, however, result from a more flexible way of working. CarVue allows everyone to see the same customer or job information and carry out the same actions from a computer, phone, tablet or even a diagnostic machine. This ease of use encourages greater communication, information sharing and visibility and can lead to workshops performing much more transparently and efficiently. The ability to take a booking while sat on your sofa one evening, or send a text to a customer and see their reply on your job card can bring greater customer satisfaction and retention levels and, importantly, profits for garages. That’s got to be an exciting prospect hasn’t it?”
