Our story

About our software


In 2017 we were asked to put together a digital auction for a client. The product we developed suceeded in raising over £30,000 for their cause and offered a great way for the company to raise future funds for their chosen charity. Fast forward to 2019

How does the charity software work?

Our auction platform allows you to upload images of donated items into your bespoke auction platform. A link is created which can then be distributed out to your contacts, family members, work colleagues , or supporters. Once Registered individuals or groups are free to bid on the items in the auction whilst it remains live. It is called a silent auction and all participants can choose to remain anonymous in the live bidding process. 

Is it easy to use?

Yes, we give you a login & you prepare images of each item you want in your auction. You simply upload and set a starting price and reserve price and your ready to go. Customise the front end in your settings so you have a front cover with branded colour schemes. Email out a link to your mailing list and they can sign up and start to bid on the items.
