James Bond is too suave and sophisticated to use old fashioned paper bid sheets and hover over items as an auction ends to protect his bid. That’s why JDRF Houston has said good bye to the old way of holding silent auctions and saying hello to BidPal, a wireless bidding device that will revolutionize the way bidding takes place at the 2012 Promise Ball: Men on a Mission.
With BidPal, guests at this year’s Promise Ball will be able to:
During registration, guests will receive a handheld device pre-loaded with every auction item — item description, bid increments, photo and donor information. Additionally guests may choose to use their iPhone or Android Smartphone to serve as their BidPal device for the evening. Guests can browse the silent auction area as well as view items on their personal BidPal device and bid from anywhere at any time during the event.
Check out the below BidPal training video to walk through the functionality and capabilities of this new technology.
