Challenge: Need for a Reliable Privately Branded Online Bidding Platform

"When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, we were seriously considering postponing our auctions.  We were really hesitant to run timed auctions because we never had run online auctions before and were worried that our bidders wouldn't bid, leading to poor results.  NextLot's easy-to-use, awesome product made for a simple transition for our on-site bidders.  We got extremely positive feedback and results that exceeded our expectations.  We now only wish we had started running online-only auctions sooner."
