About

Our story (so far)

Taking the automotive industry digital

In late 2015, brothers Paul and Michael Higgins founded HelloCars as Australia's first online car dealership, allowing customers to buy and sell used cars online from the convenience of their home.

Identifying a shifting market

As a digital-first business, HelloCars was quick to identify the shift toward more flexible car ownership options. The company set about leveraging its award-winning digital capabilities and automotive knowledge to develop Australia's first car subscription service.

The growing demand for car subscription
‍‍

HelloCars Subscription had become the countries fastest-growing car subscription program. Soon, other dealerships were reaching out to understand the software behind HelloCars that was driving the car subscription movement, and Blinker was born.

Launching a world-class SaaS product

The remarkable growth of car subscription as an alternative to traditional car ownership had exceeded even our grandest expectations, and in realising our global ambitions - Blinker was reborn as Loopit.

We're just getting started
‍‍

Loopit is the preferred partner for some of the largest car dealership groups, car rental businesses and other mobility provides across Australia and New Zealand. We're hiring! Contact us to learn more about our current openings.
