Aero Auctions sees technology as a strategic investment into their business, and have strong
visions for using technology to improve operations and customer service. Their current use of
technology was not progressing them to their overall vision and to move forward they needed
Aero Auctions met with pavliks.com to discuss their vision and set a plan in place to achieve it.
For the first phase of their vision, they wanted a website that would allow them to create and
update their inventory listings for each auction, without paying a third party to make changes. This
would save them money and improve efficiency.
At this point, Aero Auctions was using a product called Auction Flex to manage their auctions and
inventory. To reduce multiple data entry points, they wanted to export the data from the website to
be used by the Auction Flex software.
pavliks.com performed an analysis, gathering the information required for the new product
catalogue and information about the Auction Flex software. Then a Proof of Concept was built to
prove that solution will work and is scalable. Finally the solution was built and Aero Auctions could
proceed with their vision.
For the next phase of vision, Aero Auctions wanted to integrate NextLot Online auction web software
with their website to have a branded online bidding experience for their clients. This integration
was another improvement in operations and added great value for their customer service.
At the same time Aero Auctions had expended into Quebec and needed to have a French version
of their website that included the same auction and consignments items. With consolidated
data, both English and French versions of the website were receiving the same information and
provided a consistent and seamless language experience. The functionality of Sitefinity for multiple
languages was a big benefit to this project.
