Web Design, Umbraco Development, BidPath Integration
Omega Auctions is one of the top auction houses worldwide for music memorabilia and vinyl records. The family run auction house has buyers and sellers worldwide.
We were approached by Omega Auctions to completely overhaul their existing website and with a requirement to move to the Umbraco platform, they selected us to partner with them.
In preparation for a new website, Omega Auctions had already embarked on a rebranding exercise. With a more modern and colourful logo, this assisted us in creating a much more bolder website for Omega. We utilised the geometric shapes and palette of colours in backgrounds, buttons and accents.
Umbraco is fully utilised to share content across the website with Auction Highlights and Upcoming Auctions providing additional useful information as they browse the website.
BidPath is a leading software auction company and handles all auctions on behalf of Omega Auctions. The auction software is hosted on BidPath’s own servers so a solution was required to integrate the sites together.
Whilst the software is hosted remotely, working together with BidPath key parts of the website such as header and footer were shared and stored on their servers in order to provide a seamless experience between the Omega Auctions and BidPath software.
Users can easily navigate between BidPath’s up-to-date auction information and Omega Auction’s and even though they will be transferred between different websites, it will appear as though they are on the same website.
We delivered an Umbraco website that was extremely easy to use and with minimal training Omega have been utilising the website to its full potential by promoting their may successful auctions.
Post-launch the website was cloned and modified to be used by Omega Auction's sister company, Omega Gallery Auctions.
