A few words from some happy auctioneers...
Our auction firm has been in business for over 60 years and we were pretty much married to the old fashioned way of doing business. The mere thought of going online was overwhelming. We called Sharp Auction Engine and asked if they would be willing to meet with us in person, and they did so the very same day! Their friendly staff gave us a live demo, in person, with very short notice. Just a month later, we conducted our first online/live auction and it was a big success. Sharp Auction Engine got us over a big hurdle and today we can offer online auctions to our customers with full confidence. We also find the customer support staff to be prompt and freindly, although after you get up and running you won’t need to call them much if any.
Sharp Auction Engine is a great product of an auctioneer looking to get started in the online only auction world or even for an auctioneer looking for a simple to use website, Sharp has all the built-in features that an auctioneer would need to provide a high quality website for their bidders. Its a clean and simple solution for both bidders and the auctioneer alike. The customer service staff at Sharp is top quality and they listen to their user base when it comes to adding features.
It is easy to use and gives the auction house complete control over content of site and the auction itself (times, content, etc); it allows for changes to the items (descriptions, photos, and bidding increments) during the auction as well as before the auction goes live. We like being able to post as many pictures as we decide are needed for each item and that we can also post a video for each item.
