from car subscription customer to sales manager at Carvolution

This is a paid post powered by Carvolution

Catrina, you have been working at Carvolution as a Sales Manager since the beginning of the year. What are you doing exactly?
I advise and accompany customers on their way to their car with a subscription from Carvolution. I am at your side with advice and action so that we can select the right car together and put it together with your personal subscription configuration.

Can you reveal what concerns your customers the most?
The possibility of adapting the kilometer package flexibly to your needs, being able to take the vehicle with you on vacation and sharing it with the family. They are always relieved when they find out that they always have a mileage overview in the app and can adapt the mileage package to their needs at any time. Traveling abroad and sharing with family or friends Carvolution of course no problem.

Do you work in the office in Bannwil or in the home office?
Mostly from the home office. I’ve been living in Bern for almost two years. It’s really nice that we’re now seeing more and more customers in person in Bannwil, at the headquarters of Carvolution, welcome and advise. This has been increasing again for a few months, which is why I commute to Bannwil 1 to 2 times a week. I find the personal contact enormously valuable.

How do you commute to work?
That is very different. Sometimes by car and sometimes by train. It always depends on the time of day.

What does your career look like?
After graduating from high school, I studied cultural sciences at the University of Zurich for a bachelor’s degree. I then completed my master’s degree in world society and world politics at the University of Lucerne. At the same time, I worked in gastronomy for many years and that’s how I got a taste for customer-oriented work and finally closed Carvolution.

What is your relation to cars? Or to put it another way: Do you have to have petrol in your blood to be able to sell cars?
It’s definitely an advantage if you like cars or driving and have some petrol in your blood. However, this has only developed for me in recent years and has intensified when I myself Carvolution-Customer became.

Before you started your job with the Swiss car subscription pioneer, you were a customer at Carvolution: what made you a car subscriber?
For my previous job, I was looking for a flexible car that was as inexpensive as possible. I came across the subscription option that covers these aspects for me and represents the perfect solution.

What convinced you the most about the car subscription?
Clearly the simplicity of the all-inclusive package, the flexibility to be able to adjust my kilometer package independently in the app and the low and clearly calculable costs. And also the friendly and personal contact with the employees of Carvolution.

Of course we want to know: Which subscription car did you drive and are you still driving it?
I drove a Fiat 500 Dolcevita on subscription – a perfect companion for my needs at the time. Right now I’m trying to choose the right vehicle for my current needs; but the Fiat 500 is high on my list again.

How was your experience with your Carvolution car?
My experiences have been very good. I felt like I was in good hands from day one, the team is just great. Above all, I found the simplicity, i.e. the fact that I didn’t have to worry about anything about the car, ideal. Registering the car, taking out comprehensive insurance and also ordering the right tires and then storing them, all of this is taken care of Carvolution. I was also very satisfied during the subscription period. When I realized that I wasn’t driving that many kilometers after all, I was able to adjust my kilometer package myself in the app. I also had an overview of all my bills there. And last but not least, the price is of course a point that I felt comfortable with. For me, the car subscription is the inexpensive alternative to buying and leasing.

Was it a coincidence that you went from being a customer to an employee?
Absolutely, when I returned the vehicle, the good atmosphere in Bannwil convinced me so much that I went straight to the job portal. As luck would have it, it was Carvolution I was just about to hire new people and so I applied for the position of Sales Manager.

You now know both sides of Carvolution: How has your impression of the start-up changed?
A look behind the scenes confirmed what I was able to experience as a customer. Behind Carvolution is a team that pulls together, motivates every day and looks after customers with great pleasure and accompanies them on their way to a car subscription. The team spirit is strong and the atmosphere in Bannwil is always great.

The car subscription is becoming increasingly important: Why do more and more people prefer to use a car than own it?
The clientele at Carvolution is very diverse and their needs are just as diverse. Some are very interested in the low-cost offer and cost transparency Carvolution interested, others in simplicity and convenience. That they don’t have to worry about anything to do with the car, but that Carvolution takes care of everything, they really appreciate that. And still others appreciate the flexibility of the car subscription. Life changes quickly and so do the needs of a car.

Who do you recommend a car subscription to?
All those who want to use a car easily, flexibly and, above all, inexpensively for a certain period of time and do not want to forego the comfort of a new car. These are, for example, young families whose needs change depending on family planning. Retirees who may no longer want to be tied to their own vehicle for years or who prefer a car with a higher seating position. Or expats who are only in Switzerland for a certain amount of time. And of course people in general who have a lot to do and don’t want to bother with insurance, service or cantonal redemption.

Does the classic Carvolution customer actually exist?
We advise and support a wide variety of customers Carvolution. This is also the appeal of the job: it is always exciting and instructive to find the right vehicle for you. As a team, we face the challenge of covering as many needs as possible for our customers and offering them what is currently in demand.

Carvolution is a successful start-up. The team is pretty big now. To what extent do you still feel the start-up groove, or what makes it special?
The start-up groove of Carvolution you can feel it above all in the drive and in the “thinking outside the box” of the entire team. Processes also change quickly and our day-to-day work is extremely dynamic – everyone contributes and together we look at what works and what doesn’t.

Carvolution is an innovative, data-driven company. The hall at the company headquarters in Bannwil is full of modern cars. Rural idyll dominates all around: how do you imagine working in Bannwil?
In Bannwil you are surrounded by a range of cool cars and so extremely close to the product you are selling. Because, for example, the Operations office, where the vehicles are registered and the license plates are ordered, is right next to the sales office. And the workshop where the cars are processed and prepared for handover is also there. It’s always exciting to see how everyone on the car subscription and the all-inclusive package from Carvolution work.

What do you do when you’re not working for Carvolution?
Then I’m writing my dissertation, I’m jogging, on my gravel bike, or hiking in the mountains with friends.
