Hello auction friends!
The EDGE Simulcast powered by Velocicast team has another round of new features, this time focused on improvements for auction clerks and auctioneers. These changes are in effect now.
Announcement Picker - The announcement picker now grabs the first 18 items from the announcement list stored in your ASI system. For other Auction Management Systems, the Velocicast admin site allows auctions to define their own custom list of pre-canned announcements.
Notice that editing Miles and Title Attached are now done in this view.
Internet Explorer - Microsoft now only officially supports Internet Explorer 11. All previous versions are end of life. In this release, we've added a warning message to any user attempting to use the Velocicast clerk with IE 10 or older. Of course, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox will work as expected.
Auctioneer Pro Screen Features
Floor Codes - the Auctioneer Pro Screen will now show the floor code for the vehicle, it it is provided by the auction system.
Onsite Bidder lists - for the current vehicle being sold, the auctioneer will now be able to see the bidder badges for all reps who are at the auction that day.
BidNoShowDealer setting - This is a new setting that allows auctions to prevent the Dealer Name from showing on the bidder screens when an online bid is accepted. This is a setting that has to be set on the customer maintenance screen by system admins.
