We Understand The Auction Business

What Is Gavel Buddy?

Gavel Buddy was designed by an auctioneer with a software development background to help his business save money and become more efficient. Paper tickets were inefficient, error prone, and created additional stress on his auction staff when reconciling his buyer and seller totals.
