Online Auction Software Program
Online bidding capability has become important to auctioneers. Interest is growing many professional auctioneers have used some type of auction software program in the past, often with mixed results. When I talk to auctioneers they often express the same sentiments in terms of what is important to them and what they are looking for in an ideal auction software program. Virtual Auction offers an auction software program and let me tell you we have been listening to what our customers have to say!
What Is Important To Have In An Auction Software Program
One of the first things I hear from auctioneers is that they want their auction software program is to provide an experience that truly simulates a real live auction event, even if it is running on the internet and there is no floor bidders. The reason is obvious, they know what works, they know how to sell, they know that live events create passion, competitiveness and excitement that timed bidding can’t provide. So how do you create that on the internet? You need an auction software program that has two components: First the ability to offer live video and audio streaming to give your online bidders a view of the floor, so they can see and hear the action while bidding online. Second for your internet online auctions you need an auction software program that allows you to run live real time events, not timed bidding. This creates the same competitive bidding environment that your floor auctions do, putting all the bidders online at the same time. Supply and demand the laws of economics, one item 50 bidders, you do the math! Virtual Auction is a auction software program that offers those key features and a whole lot more.
Integrate Marketing And Customer Management In An Auction Software Program
Your auction software program should do more than just run auctions; it should help you run your business. Virtual auction offers features that allow you to manage your bidders, export bidder lists, and engage in automated email and communications with customers when certain triggers occur and more. The more auctions you run, the bigger your database of bidders and sellers becomes. This allows you to utilize this info to increase participation in future online events and maximize revenue.
