In 2009 Wilsons Auctions became one of the first independent auctions in the UK and Ireland to offer online bidding via Kingfisher’s Live Bid product. May 2015 sees Wilsons adopt Live Bid 2, Kingfisher’s next generation solution.
Ian Fisher, MD of Kingfisher Systems, states ‘We are delighted to have completed the Live Bid 2 upgrade for Wilsons. This involved rebuilding large parts of their website and also creating a Single Sign On solution. With Single Sign On a user logs in once to the Wilsons website and gains access to all available products from timed auctions through to Live Bid 2. Users can also create watch lists and place proxy bids on sale items of interest.’
May will also see the launch of Live Bid 2 at NI Car Sales, Hop Auctions and Malcolm Harrison Auctions with more installations planned for the second half of 2015.
In other developments Kingfisher has supplied Auction Manager to Enniskillen Auctions with their first sale due to take place on the 26th of May.
