Introducing the New Manheim Simulcast

First Simulcast 3 sale event held at Manheim Bruntingthorpe

Simulcast 3 was today successfully launched at Manheim Bruntingthorpe.

Kingfisher Systems originally developed Simulcast 2 for Manheim Auctions in 2012, with the first sale event held at Manheim Leeds in February 2013.

Working in conjunction with our Cox Automotive colleagues, we began developing Simulcast 3 in early 2020. Adopting the latest web technologies such as React JS, the team has completely redeveloped the Simulcast UI and UX. The result is a dynamic and highly intuitive application that allows vendors and buyers to transact digitally with ease.

Ian Fisher comments "Simulcast 2 was the first product we developed for Manheim Auctions and was central to the growth and transformation of Kingfisher as a company. The launch of Simulcast 3 is the latest step on a ten year journey that has seen the team develop enterprise solutions such as Simulcast and AIMS."

Speaking about the launch sale, Chris Mynott, National HGV & Plant Manager at Manheim Auctions, said: "The sale ran as smooth as ever, and with the Simulcast product owners on site at Bruntingthorpe - as well as the many support crew joining us virtually - we can deem the launch a real success!"

The Simulcast team will now focus on creating new customer features, including push notifications and online payment options, while continuing to evolve and enhance the underlying bidding engine and Simulcast infrastructure.
