|Auctioneer of Antique and Rare Musical Instruments|
|An online auction platform plus administrative tools to run all aspects of their online auction business|
Musicroom Auctions was a new online auction house specialising in fine and antique musical instruments. As a new business they were looking for a single auction administration system that would allow them to run their own online auctions on their own platform that could be fully integrated within their own site. They were also looking for a system that offered comprehensive administration tools that would allow for detailed stock management, client management, cataloging and buyer invoicing. Most importantly it had to offer good value for money.
Musicroom Auctions were launching their own website at the same time as their online auction platform. We were therefore able to work very closely with their design consultants to ensure that their website and their iRostrum auction platform would integrate seamlessly.
The iRostrum+ system offered all the administrative tools that Musicroom Auctions were looking for. Our bespoke software development team were able to provide some additional customisation to the system to allow for their own client charge structure. This has now been incorporated into the system in the form of totally configurable client charges as part of our free upgrade service.
“The main benefits in comparison to other systems we looked at was the pricing. Unlike many other online auction system providers, iRostrum don’t charge you a percentage of the hammer price, so your costs are fixed allowing you to have a clear overview of the annual cost. Aside from the financial aspects, a huge advantage has also turned out to be the incredible level of service that iRostrum provide. They are auction specialists themselves, who have personally gone through the process of setting up and running an online auction business, so they have a unique insight into how they are able to help and support us. They were able to offer advice on so many aspects of the online auction business and actively contributed to making our first auction a great success.” Pippa Wilkins, Business Manager, Musicroom Auctions.
