Auctioneering Software & Website Required
Required: Software for use at a real live auction. An example of the sort of software required can be found at this link: [url removed, login to view] (there is a short video which can be watched for ideas.
Requirements: Minimum of the features found on the software at [url removed, login to view] PLUS:
Option of ability for all lots and bidders to be bar-coded in addition to numbering.
The software should be linked to a website which will be used to advertise the physical auction and will also enable people to make a commissioned bid via the internet on available lots. A variable deposit will be required with payment via paypal. No bid will be accepted until deposit has been paid. A refund mechanism for unsuccessful bidders must be automated.
All information must be entered seamlessly between the actual auction and the online auction.
All the software should be very easy and fool proof to operate. It must be 100% stable. Accounting records should be in Microsoft Excel format. (Ideally).
Data and photos MUST be able to be added and edited very easily. It should have an automatic save!
The ability to output a photo of the item, the item number and description on a separate T.V. screen would be an advantage.
An on going clock to record speed of the auction would be an advantage - (keep the auctioneer on his toes!)
This software must work with Windows XP and be upgradeable
On going support would be nice!
Any other ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I do not mind if this software is a re-work of something already on the market - indeed, something that has been tried and tested would have an advantage!
Please Note: I only pay on receipt of the finished product. Ideally, I will pay you with paypal.
