CAR repair online marketplace ClickMechanic is celebrating scooping a record-breaking number of trophies at the Workshop Power Awards.
The three trophies it went home with from this year’s ceremony at the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth recognised it for Best Tech Product of the Year, Product Innovation of the Year and the Extra Mile Award.
It comes shortly after it was recognised by startups.co.uk as one of the ‘Young Guns Five to Watch’, which emphasises its fast growth and the success of its co-founders, Andrew Jervis and Felix Kenton. It also increases ClickMechanic’s likelihood of featuring in the Young Guns Class of 2018 Awards, which are presented to promising entrepreneurs who are still under 35.
ClickMechanic has also been shortlisted for a further five awards across four events to be held later this year. They comprise Online Solution of the Year at the Retail Systems Awards, Digital Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards, Product of the Year at the V3 Technology Awards, and Young Company of the Year at the Growing Business Awards.
The company’s growth over 2017 has seen it provide its two millionth quote, which adds up to a total of £300 million in value of quotes given out. It now has 500,000 registered users and is on track to top £5m in booking revenue this year.
Jervis said: ‘We are truly excited to see ClickMechanic being recognised and shortlisted for so many awards. ClickMechanic was founded to bring trust, transparency and convenience back to the car repair marketplace and these awards reflect our growth, success and impact on the industry. We will continue to deliver our unique services and are eager to see what the future holds for ClickMechanic!’
