Challenges

Client is working with 4k+ auction houses, dealers and galleries and hence wanted a common web based
Marketplace – bidding platform

Custom Software Solution

Developing a scalable solution which can be customized as per seller’s individual functionality requirement and unique UI/UX – Look and feel.

Working with Old Technology

To reduce the cost legacy database was used. System is built in Classic ASP. Integration with new software and maintaining consistency was difficult.

Dragging live data in a common platform

Showcasing all real time updates, push notifications, product catalogues, live and upcoming auctions in a single portal was tricky.
