Drover started out on the route of traditional recruitment agencies, but found that the firms couldn't keep up with the pace the company needed. So Drover tried Tempo, an AI-enabled recruiting platform.
Launched in January 2016, Drover offers drivers a new alternative to ownership, with their flexible monthly car subscriptions. Included is a car, insurance, maintenance, tax and breakdown cover. Drover allow people to swap, upgrade, downgrade or cancel their car, without any long-term commitment or steep upfront payments.
The company has handled tens of thousands of subscriptions since its launch and continues to grow at a rapid rate.
“As a growing startup, we need complete flexibility. There are weeks where the business grows by more than 20%. If we don’t have enough people to meet demand, holes could start appearing and service could suffer,” says Thomas Hanks, Head of Growth at Drover.
