Version 2.8 Enables Multi-Site, Multi-Brand Auction Portal Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - SAM Auction Software, a leading private label commerce platform in the reverse logistics marketplace, today released version 2.8 of its auction management software to enable auction software as a service providers to easily deploy and manage multiple branded auction portals.

Each account would have its own environment where the account admin can create auctions, create lots, manage/run sales, create/send/charge invoices and settlements and configure his own settings, completely independent of other accounts.

"The ability to easily create and manage private label auction portals that utilize SAM's powerful technology is critical to driving profit and scale for auction software as a service providers," Sebastian Baerend, Founder and CEO, SAM Auction Software said. "This offering allows providers to focus on their business relationships and know-how and leverage our expertise in delivering superior auction management technology," Baerend added.

All auctions from all accounts are displayed to bidders on the main website and bidders can participate in all those auctions. Each account is also supplied with a customizable subdomain that shows only their auction data. On such a subdomain the header/footer and all styles, colors, background images, etc. can be maintained by that account's webmaster, giving the account owner the ability to present an independently branded platform, while maintaining a presence on the main site for traffic generation purposes, but without the need to manage redundant sets of auction and lot data.
