Automatically feeds website Lots can be shown on website as soon as signed off. Puts YOU in total control of your catalogue and website and their changes. No reliance on third parties! Fee breakdown There are three elements to the fee structure Set-up and Training We work closely with the Auction House to set up the required templates to match both the required size pages, and the brand identity of the auction house. Typically this involves a few “man days” of programming on our part. In addition training is given at the beginning to ensure effective use of the solution is achieved. Lot Cost For each auction created, the fee payable is depends on both the number of lots and the average number of lots per page, if less than 2. Additional templates and bespoke solutions Should the auction house require additional templates or bespoke functionality then the cost of this would be charged at our prevailing hourly rate.
Data Management System Cost Breakdown Cost 1 Cost 2 Cost 3 No. of lots per catalogue Supplement added if average “lots per page” is less than 2 lots per page Additional Services Set up costs “Cost 1” is applicable where the average number of lots per page in the catalogue is 2 or greater. Where the number of lots per page is less than 2 then a supplement is payable as set out in “Cost 2”. To calculate the ‘lots per page’ simply count up the number of lots and divide this by the number of pages that have lots printed on them. Ignore adverts in the page count. For example: A catalogue has 47 lots. These are printed on 32 pages which include 2 half page adverts – total pages is therefore 31. Average lots per page is 47/31 = The additional cost to be added on is therefore 25% as 1.51 is less that 1.6 and more than 1.5.

The Deployment Journey Data Management System Deployment The Deployment journey would ideally involve EiG attending your office to introduce the system to your team. We would advise appointing a member of your team to be our main contact. This contact will be intensively trained to help support the other members of your team. We will work with your printers to ensure the catalogue is ‘print ready’ and your web team to ensure lots are correctly displayed on your website Training and support will be offered throughout the data management process.
