New Mobile Auction Cataloging App Released by Wavebid - Catalog and Photograph Over 100 Lots Per Hour

Faster than ever before, from start to finish using only a mobile phone, auctioneers can now build an entire auction catalog that includes photos, descriptions and other key information.

Minneapolis, MN, October 18, 2013 --( Wavebid, pioneering industry leading auction technologies, announces the release of Wavebid Mobile, a ground-breaking mobile cataloging app for auctioneers. Setup to run on both Android and iOs devices, Wavebid Mobile provides Auctioneers with the tools needed to build a complete auction catalog using only a mobile phone or tablet.

A complete mobile cataloging solution, Wavebid Mobile makes it easy to take and add multiple photos to selected lots and then quickly add descriptions and more. It can be used to build new catalogs, add additional items or make changes to existing catalogs.

“The mobile app represents a huge improvement in our process. We have doubled the lots we can catalog in an hour,” said Tim Babb from Fram Fram Auctions. “It’s very easy to use and simple to learn.” There are no spreadsheets or computers needed to build the catalog. Wavebid Mobile is compatible with VRS (Voice Recognition Software) so instead of typing or hand writing descriptions simply enter the information by talking into your mobile device. All lot information is safely stored in the cloud until exported to an online auction platform or user website.

For live auctioneers selling uncataloged auctions, the mobile app can be used to photograph an item seconds before it goes on the auction block. Those photos can be instantly displayed on screens so a large crowd can easily see what is being sold. Until Wavebid Mobile, Auctioneers have never had technology that would allow for near real time display of items being sold. Using Wavebid, these images can also be sent to bidders’ mobile devices for up close viewing.

“Wavebid Mobile may represent a pivot point in the online auction industry,” said Russ Hilk, founding partner at Wavebid. “The speed and simplicity when cataloging with Wavebid Mobile will make selling online much more profitable.” Cataloged items can be sent directly from a phone or tablet to any online auction platform partnered with Wavebid. By using this ground-breaking technology and simple cataloging process, auctioneers can work more efficiently and profitably. Cataloging has never been faster – auctioneers selling personal property have been able to catalog and photograph over 100 lots per hour.
