Silent Auction Using iPads

A leading provider of global solutions and managed services wanted to host a silent auction for over 200 guests using iPads to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity.

The Challenge

The guests needed to be able to view lot information easily and bid for their chosen item in a secure and hassle-free way.

We provided each table with two iPads with our silent auction app. Each lot had its own page within the app where guests could view pictures and read a description of the item. They could also see the current highest bid

To make a bid, guests would simply log into the system by entering their name, email address and table number, select the relevant lot and enter the amount they wished to bid. Following their bid, they would receive a notification to say they had successfully bid on an item. If a guest had been outbid, then the system would generate a notification informing them and ask them if they wished to bid again.

Screens were placed throughout the room so that guests could be reminded of available lots and to see the current bids on items.

Outcome

Guests found the silent auction software extremely easy to use. The iPads were sleek and as there was no pin to remember to log into the system, it was hassle-free. Organisers were delighted with the amount raised and said they would definitely use the Group Dynamics silent auction system for all their future fundraising events.
