Live Bid allows clients to place bids online via mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. The system has been developed using the latest HTML5 technology to produce a device independent solution that will run on any platform.

The Vehicle Inspection System allows a vehicle to be fully appraised from any Android device.
Developed using the latest version of the Kotlin Programing Language, the app allows the user to capture full details on the vehicle being inspected. Damage images can be captured along with a graphical vehicle splat highlighting the location and nature of any damage to the vehicle. Beauty shots of the vehicle can also be taken, with the resultant inspection report automatically generated as a PDF document and uploaded to the client's website and any related third party portals.

Kingfisher designs custom stock locators for its auction customers. The locators can be utilised to advertise stock in upcoming physical auctions or can provide full online 'eBay' style timed auction functionality. Our stock locators are fully customisable allowing them to be integrated seamlessly with our clients' websites.
