SPOTTER

Live Auctions and Online Shop

Spotter is a web-based auction solution with an online shop. This multi-sided platform enables users to purchase offered products or bid on the advertised product offers.

Business Value

Working for our client from Zürich we crafted a platform which allows artists or art galleries to become a spotter partners and place their offers to attract buyers. Apart from typical online shop features, the platform offers two types of auctions: online and live.

The system was developed for an auctioning house for auctioning and selling art works. The platform was equipped with features like automatic bidding, blind bidding and custom bidder dashboard with live auction updates and reports.

The user has the ability to highlight featured auctions, follow those that interest him and set favourite categories for future auctions. The platform offers two types of auctions: online and live. The bidders have the ability to bid one-of-a-kind pieces of art as well as resign from bidding altogether and buy the item for a set price.

On one hand, the platform attracts collectors and art connoisseurs, on the other, artists or art galleries can become a spotter partners and place their offers to attract buyers.
