Spink Becomes First Auction House in UK to Introduce 3D Imagery on its New Global Website
London. July 30th, 2012. Spink, the world’s premier auction house for collectables, announced the launch of its new website today, which it believes will revolutionise the way that it can better service its global client base.
The main highlight of its enhanced features is the ability for clients to see pieces sold via private treaty or within special collections three dimensionally, allowing closer inspection of objects from wherever the client is in the world. Spink is the only auction house to offer the opportunity to see collectables in this 3D format, where one can rotate the piece from all angles, allowing unprecedented scrutiny of an object, thanks to high definition photography and a rotate and zoom system.
Spink recently acquired the business formerly known as Phila China and Oeno China in Hong Kong, adding to its expanding portfolio of international offices in the UK, U.S. and Switzerland. With this wider client base and with outstanding client service always at the core of its operations, the company decided to create a more user-friendly and consolidated website, which can be used as a central resource for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Olivier Stocker, CEO of Spink, said: “Spink has always strived to be at the forefront of technological and financial evolution to offer forward-thinking and progressive, working parallel with the advances in technology and in so doing, offer the very best opportunity for our clients around the globe. The enhanced features on our newly designed website, such as the three dimensional viewing of objects, will be a huge advantage for our clients who are unable to attend physical viewings, as they will be able to inspect pieces at their convenience from their own home computer/laptop/tablet or phone from anywhere in the world and across all time zones. Also of course being able to search the database of more than 280,000 lots that we have sold in the last decade will be a fantastic tool.”
The site offers huge search and research capabilities, with innovative features such as a ‘My Spink’, a personalised account system available for use 24 hours a day. The new personalised system also has the ability to ensure clients are sent only the most relevant information on specific areas of interest to them. Clients are also able to settle their bills online quickly and easily.
Other features include:
- Extensive search and research function, including sales results since 2002
- Ability to browse more than 280,000 lots
- Access to all of Spink’s global locations under one roof
- Easy online payment
