MarkNet Real Estate Alliance Selects SAM Auction Software to Advance Its Portal Technology

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - MarkNet Alliance (http://www.marknetalliance.com), a national network of more than 50 auction companies, has advanced its auction portal technology for members in the real estate auction industry by building on the SAM Auction Software (http://www.samauctionsoftware.com) platform to provide members with private-labeled and hosted auction portals.

The MarkNet model focuses on making small businesses even more successful by offering technology resources, networking opportunities and educational training for auctioneers and staff. MarkNet's software allows members to connect with other auctioneers across the country and manage the process from their home office. Through the Alliance, MarkNet members have a broader depth of expertise, more efficient auctions and the tools to offer a complete, well-rounded auction experience for their clients.

"The MarkNet Alliance chose SAM Auction Software as our bidding engine for our live auctions, giving us more flexibility, stability, and control over our private-labeled and hosted auctions, with a stable and fair pricing structure," Matt Corso, Chief Operating Officer, MarkNet Alliance said. "After an extensive review, SAM emerged as the undisputed best provider of auction technology. They provided impeccable service and are easy to work with," Corso added.

With SAM Auction Software's bid management engine, MarkNet is able to provide members with bid and private-label auction management technology that is more stable (less down-time), scaleable (easy to build on and can handle large volumes of traffic) and flexible (easy to white-label and manage many auctions) for its auction company members and bidders.

"Companies are starting to realize the immense value in under-bidder information. These are qualified buyers who put their money on the table and represent unmet demand. This is invaluable data that can lead to yield higher conversions for re-targeting and re-marketing," Sebastian Baerend, Founder and CEO SAM Auction Software said. "This alone is a reason enough to use auction-based-commerce and is just one part of our efforts to gather complete bidder profiles and provide valuable insight back to sellers," Baerend added.
