Auction / Action - a complete auction control and bidding system.

Auctions are fun.

Unless most of your buyers can't be there
with you.
Auction / Action brings the auction to your customers - wherever they are. Caught in a board meeting, aboard a cross-Atlantic flight, at home in their pajamas or waiting for a meal.

Auction / Action utilizes a breadth of technologies to make it easy for your potential buyers to participate. From cel phones to plain old phones - from laptops to desktops.


Administrator: Software which is used before the auction date. It allows:
 
 
  • Auctioneers to define sellers, bidders and items to be sold.
  •  
  • Auctioneers to define the order in which items will be offered for sale.
  •  
  • Sellers to upload descriptions and images of their items to the Auction / Action database, and to set reserve prices for their items.
  •  
  • Bidders to register for participation in a given auction, and to browse the on-line inventory of items to be sold.
  •  
  • Auctioneers to pre-approve credit and spending limits for each bidder.


  • Control Panel: Software used by the Auctioneer during the auction. It allows:
     
     
  • items to be selected for sale.
  •  
  • starting prices to be adjusted up/down.
  •  
  • bid increments to be adjusted on the spot in response to bidding activity.
  •  
  • Bidders to be alerted when an item is 'going, going, and gone!'


  • Bidding Clients: Software which enable bidders to participate using a variety of devices. Auction / Action can be used in a one-room event, but its true power comes from its ability to enable auctions which span the globe!

  • Desktop & Laptop PCs
  •  
  • Palm Pilot and Palm OS handheld devices
