2014-04-24 15:29:33 - Irelands First Dedicated Fully Interactive Auctioneers APP. Causes A Bidding Sensation For WHYTE’S Auctioneers Of Dublin. The first App in Ireland to Include full live bidding.
Partnering with Auctioneersvault.com a business specializing in New Technology for the advancement of the Auctioneering Industry, a dedicated Auctioneers APP. was developed for WHYTES of Dublin, www.whytes.ie
WHYTE'S are Ireland s premier specialist art and collectibles auction house, and their city centre offices and galleries are located in the last intact terrace of Georgian shop fronts in Dublin, completed in 1831, near the famous landmarks of St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, Leinster House and the fashionable shopping area of Grafton Street.
While APPs are very much in the news, the relatively new innovation of Applications for the Auctioneering Industry has to-date been mainly a link only to various downloads from the Individual Auctioneers site.
a period of time, every aspect of Whytes business was looked at and a fully interactive APP. was produced totally customized to Whytes how they operate and how clients research and view Auctions, even to the extent of Live Bidding was investigated and included within the operation of the APP..
WHYTES have been around since the early 1800s, but they have always tried to combine traditional values with current thinking and are a great promoter of new technologies in Auctioneering, including Video information and easy data retrieval and viewer access to archive material.
Auctioneersvault.com is a dedicated facility for Auctioneers to embrace the opportunities for the application of new technology, particularly in an industry where the costs of traditional print media in the form of catalogues is becoming prohibitive. Print costs were becoming more expensive and postage costs prohibitive a pressure to reduce picture and print sizes at the very time new media demanded better pictures and better information.Initially, World-wide electronic Flipbooks were introduced, which over a past few years, have developed to the point where they have interactive and searchable menus and produce the ability to find individual items on the Web.
Once the potential of the medium was developed to the current point, it became apparent that there was a need to access Archive material in an easily access able form and to make advanced electronic catalogues part of the promotional process.Having moved so far, Auction clients wanted to be able to view/ research and bid either from their static computers at home or more importantly on the go or in the Auction rooms themselves.
A number of APPs appeared, which in effect were envelopes for links to Client sites with the ability to download fixed PDF catalogues or lists.. But were not fully effective hence the rather long and painful gestation period for both Whytes and Auctioneersvault.com who were determined to produce the best APP. for Auctioneers ( quote - in the World).. to showcase what really could be done.
The result is now Free to download on either the APPLE Store @https://itunes.apple.com/hk/app/whytes/id713998300?mt=8
The Android Version at GOOGLE play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.executiveassociatess.w ..
And Amazon Kindle @ www.amazon.co.uk/Executive-Associates-Ltd-Auctioneers-Ireland/dp ..
The question of one shoe fits all, unfortunately does not apply to the Auctioneering Industry, as each business has grown organically, so each APP. developed by Auctioneersvault.com is customized to the existing working practices of the individual Auctioneers, but the end result is one more step toward the future reality of the electronic World being integrated into a very personal and hands on business where the individual, be it the Auctioneer or Client has full access to data/bidding and information, but still retains their personal touch so important in an industry where charm, charisma and discovery meets the new electronic age.
