Buying at auction just got easier with Poway, California-based National Powersport Auctions (NPA) announcing the launch of its all-new NPA Simulcast platform featuring live mobile bidding capabilities. Dealers can now feel as though they are participating live in-person directly from their mobile device or tablet through the NPA Dealer App, which is available for both Apple and Android users.
As the leader in powersport remarketing, NPA is always looking for ways to
innovate and bring the latest technology to its dealers. With mobile bidding,
dealers can now buy and sell with ease while on the go.
Mobile bidding on the NPA Dealer App features a user-friendly interface, with a simple “double tap” to bid button, plus auction audio to hear everything happening in the lane. Want to bid on another lane running or preview upcoming inventory? Simply use the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen to switch auction lanes, preview and filter through inventory, view bidding activity or auction stats and message the auctioneer with any questions. These features truly put the buying power at the tip of your fingers.
For dealers bidding on a desktop or laptop, additional features and functionality on the new Simulcast platform provide an improved buying experience. A completely redesigned bid screen and three new lane views allow for multiple lanes to be open and bid on simultaneously. Dealers can view bidding activity and listen to audio on different lanes, easily preview and filter through the upcoming run list, add items to the watch list and set proxy bids directly from the bid screen. Additionally, new seller features like Sell, Take and Pass buttons make it easy to communicate with the auctioneer about how to proceed with a unit on the block.
“We’re very excited to launch our all-new NPA Simulcast platform,” said CEO Jim
Woodruff. “It’s been a long time coming with a lot of hard work going into it, so to have it finally come to fruition and now be utilized during auctions is a massive accomplishment. Dealers have been asking for mobile bidding for a long time, and we’re excited to provide that service to them. Everything they need to bid and buy at auction is now right at their fingertips. The platform also has a whole new look on a desktop with new features that will improve the overall experience for our clients.”
