Announcing: Bidding Analytics

posted: Aug 2 2020

We are happy to announce the release of our latest suite of tools, Bidding Analytics --- a suite of data visualization tools that provide insight into bidding competition and improve your win rate.

This awesome new toolset is based on the fact that a visualization of a table of data often provides far more insight into the data than just a table. We pushed the limits of the best technologies that we could find. Naturally, the more bidding information we can feed into the charts, the greater the benefit of the charts.

If you prefer to dive right in, see BidSlammer Screenshots. You can sign up for an account, and then go directly to the "Slam Stats" tab in your Bidding Manager (BidSlammer Dashboard).

While experimenting with various ways to display the data, we had a few "eureka" moments, as discussed in the next sections.

Snipe customers tell us that in general, they give only a fleeting glance to an auction's bidding history, because they are mainly just interested in the final seconds of the auction. If they do take a close look, they look for:

All of the above is now possible using BidSlammer's built-in Preview function.
