Update: the meeting time has been moved to 1 p.m. on Thursday.
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the MaxaNet content management system and Internet bidding system for auctioneers. We’re excited that our friend Will McLemore is organizing a users group meeting to coincide with NAA Conference and Show in Greensboro this Thursday.
GREENSBORO, NC (July 12, 2010) – Users of Maxanet, the online bidding platform operated by JBS Software, will have an opportunity to speak with Steve VanEerden, JBS’ chief executive, at the National Auctioneers Association Conference and Show in Greensboro, NC this year. The meeting will take place at 10:00 AM ET on Thursday, July 15 at Area 52 of the Joseph S. Koury Convention Center.
Will McLemore, CAI, President of McLemore Auction Co. of Nashville, TN, organized the meeting to provide an opportunity for Maxanet users not only to engage with VanEerden, but also to meet each other to share tips and techniques for running the program. McLemore said, “Many auctioneers have had great success in carrying out Internet-only auctions using Maxanet. I know that we have based our business strategy around its capabilities. I’m sure we’ve solved a few problems others are working on now and I know there are problems we haven’t yet solved that others have sorted out. I thought it would be a good idea to schedule a time for Maxanet users to get together with each other and with Steve (VanEerden) during the Conference and Show.”
Topics of discussion are likely to include plans for the further development of the software, best practices for increased sales and how to integrate data from Maxanet into other business systems. McLemore anticipates that the meeting will last for between one and two hours and will provide ample time for topics and questions to be presented from anyone who chooses to attend.
