Variations on the theme:

AuctionMan comes in three "flavours" (or software levels) so you can choose the one that is most appropriate for your needs...
AuctionMan/JNR
is intended for freelance and other auctioneers who are only concerned with one-off auctions and have no need for stock control.

AuctionMan/LITE
caters to smaller auction rooms where stock control is needed and where on-site auctions are not a major issue.

AuctionMan/PRO
provides the complete, networkable suite of auction management functions for larger auction houses running both rooms and on-site auctions.

System requirements:

AuctionMan is a PC-based software system for the management of all types of multiple-item auction sales which is just as happy on a desktop as it is on a notebook or a network!

It runs on 16- and 32-bit PCs under Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 98 and 95 (N.B. 64-bit versions of Windows require XP MODE (or equivalent) support - we do NOT support 64-bit Windows). A printer is required for report (i.e. catalogue, selling sheet, invoice, etc.) printing; e.g. laser, ink-jet.

AuctionMan is suitable for both multi- (network) and single-user (stand-alone) application on Windows-compatible networks.

Each PC will need 8MB of free disk space into which to install AuctionMan and 4MB of memory (RAM) to run it.
