About us

Founded in 2010, VEACT develops and distributes a software-based platform for digitalising marketing processes in the automotive industry. With self-learning technology and a broad automotive know-how, VEACT supports its customers in making marketing and sales processes more efficient through data. To do this, VEACT uses all available data sources, such as invoices, service histories, satisfaction queries, and campaign data and condenses them into a customer profile. The aim is to process this information qualitatively so that it can be used to create individual customer profiles and recommendations for action (predictive customer intelligence).

Car dealerships and manufacturers benefit from lower process costs, improved customer loyalty and, thus, higher sales.

VEACT now has c.€15 million in revenue and c.100 FTE and is an established scaleup within the automotive software ecosystem and the secret weapon behind some of the world's biggest car dealerships and OEMs. The market, demand, and potential look fantastic. In Europe, 380,000 car dealerships and repair shops generate a turnover of €170 billion in aftersales.

Over the coming period, VEACT is embarking on a European scaling journey and is seeking to expand its footprint to enhance its growth trajectory.
