We believe that during your fundraiser you should be meeting and thanking your donors, sponsors and patrons, not tied up in the administrative hassle of conducting an auction.
What is a Touch-Pad Auction?
Envision glowing touch screen kiosks that entice patrons from atop cocktail tables, auction tables and even the bars. With wireless roaming computers, your patrons will no longer have to be in the silent auction area to participate in the auction, they can participate from anywhere in the venue, including right from their dinner tables or live auction.
The colors, excitement and ease of use of the computerized touch-pad experience will boost your auction participation which means more revenue generation. Watch your patrons as they use the "My Bids" feature to see what items they are winning and to easily re-bid on items they are losing. Since your entire auction is automated, there is no post-auction tabulation allowing you to keep your auction open longer, which means more time to raise additional funds. During the auction, big screen projection lures your patrons to auction highlights such as live auction items, current high bids, popular silent auction items, items without bids, auction sponsors, and even streaming video presentations.
AES is an integrated partner with Auctionpay®. This means that you can use your Auctionpay® software to plan your auction and AES can electronically pull your data for use on event night.
Using another auction management product?
AES can also interface with just about any software product you are currently using. This means that you can use the software you know and love to plan your auction and AES will be able to extract the data we need for the event. No hassle, no mess.
This unique and fun filled computerized
bidding environment gives your organization new and enticing
opportunities to help bring sponsorship revenue to your event. Use
these new and exciting sponsorships not only to cover our fee, but also to
add substantial revenue to your bottom line. Additionally, by using a
computerized bidding environment, AES is able to reduce the amount of
paper products by 80% as compared to traditional bid sheet auctions.
Having a "go green auction" is not only great for you and your supportive
patrons, but is also another positive attraction for potential sponsors.
AES provides all the computer equipment and the staff to set up the bidding environment and then to monitor it throughout the evening, ensuring a successful and fun evening for all.
