Putting City Auction Group In Your Pocket.

Here at City Auction group we are always working to apply the best & latest technology in order to improve our service to our customers. Lately, one of the areas we've been working on is mobile.

With more and more people equipped with smartphones such as Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, HTC and other Android based handsets, tablet computers, and a whole range of devices designed to keep the user online while on the move, it is essential for the modern buyer to be able to access City Auction Group's web services from such devices.

In late 2011 we launched a mobile website which provided a tailored web service to users accessing our auction catalogue from a smartphone. At the end of 2012, we launched two new products: an iPhone and an Android app, available to download free from the Apple App Store or from Google Play.

We spent a lot of time thinking about what was most important to the mobile user. We've identified and delivered a number of key features:

[1] Speed.

When you're on the move, you'll often have lots of demands on your time. Your City Auction Mobile application gets to the point immediately. You can locate an auction lot quickly using our search function. Getting the latest auction dates is a single click of a button.

[2] Personalisation.

Your telephone is personal to you, so the City Auction Group app remembers which auction lots you've looked at recently allowing you to pick up where you left off. You can also build up a list of favourite lots while browsing our stock.

[3] Simple & Helpful.

The City Auction Group mobile app gives you all the key information quickly, and we've simplified everything as much as possible so that all the key controls are right where you need them. Using a mobile app should be an enjoyable experience, not a frustrating one!



We are now printing QR codes on our action lot labels. The City Auction Group app includes a QR code scan feature: just point your smartphone or tablet camera at the QR code whilst in scan mode, and the app will bring up the details of that auction lot. If you like what you can see, you can add the auction lot to your favourites list to refer to later during the sale.

We hope you like the City Auction Group mobile app. If you have any requests or features which you'd like to see in a future version, or if you have any feedback at all, please let us know. We're always working to improve our software services and your needs are the most important part of our software design process.
