Auction Technology Leader, iCollector.com Unveils Their Latest Bidding Platform

iCollector.com launches next generation auction technology catering to the rapidly expanding mobile user base.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Live Auction Group, leaders in auction technology for over 15 years, hosting iCollector.com and LiveAuctionWorld.com marketplaces, are excited to announce brand new bidding technology for the worldwide auction market. This effort marks a significant step in the growth of the business and for the long term success of all our clients. This platform allows for full live bidding on any mobile device, smartphone, or tablet and will lead to an explosion in bidding activity.

On the technical side, this platform was developed using the latest available technology which comes as a natural evolution from the previous java and flash based platforms. With this, more functionality can be developed and added over the long term as the auction industry continues to grow and change. Reliability and stability is at the pinnacle of importance when operating in the fast paced auction industry, and small auctions to the most valuable events can trust this platform completely. The feature list provides essential tools for bidders and auctioneers as well as leading mobile technology to allow bidding from any smartphone or tablet device.

The administrator platform for auctioneers will run on Mac, PC, and any mobile operating system. Thorsten Bonn, CEO of The Live Auction Group, says, "Running the bidding is a breeze with such features as auto loading, unlimited numbers of bidders, full item images, grouping, choice bidding, and high quality audio and video streams. The auctioneer can do anything they need to run a successful and high powered auction."

Bidders can imagine being in an airport lounge, relaxing in a motorhome on vacation, or walking with family and being able to bid without missing the material they have always wanted. The power of bidding is in their pocket in an instant. The bidder screen has been enhanced with images, descriptions, easy to use bidding buttons, and simple logins through any browser. "We are releasing the best bidder platform in the industry and are excited at how much growth we can expect in our sales results. Auctioneers will be excited as they see their businesses grow, and bidders will be excited to be part of our auction. Over 30 percent of the traffic on our flagship websites is from mobile devices and now they can bid live," shares Mr. Bonn.

The Live Auction Group expects more auctioneers to join iCollector.com and LiveAuctionWorld.com, as well as a significant increase in bidders. This is a major milestone in company history and positions the company as the industry leader in high powered auction and bidding technology. As summarized by Mr. Bonn, "We are excited at this major moment in our history and invite every auctioneer and bidder worldwide to visit iCollector.com or LiveAuctionWorld.com and become part of our experience."

Founded in 1997, iCollector.com was one of the pioneers in bringing auctioneers together with interested buyers. Today, we have over 1000 auction house clients worldwide, among them the top auction houses and licensed dealers in their respective categories. We specialize and excel in coin auctions, vintage collectibles, gaming memorabilia, collectible firearms, movie props and original set costumes. Furthermore, our clients excel in placing native memorabilia, original prints and paintings as well as vintage and one of a kind jewelery and diamonds.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').
