Bidding on Top-Notch Technology

Invaluable, the world’s largest online auction marketplace of fine arts and collectibles, approached Raizlabs to design and build a top-notch iPad app that would cater to a new wave of online auction goers.

The Challenge

How do you pull off a live auction in a low-network world, where every millisecond matters?

Raizlabs set out to create something unique and bring prestigious live auctions to anyone on mobile. We wanted to build an app that worked in real time and secured the experience of bidding at auction.

The Build

With a team of senior mobile engineers, Raizlabs was able to overcome difficult engineering challenges.

By leveraging Invaluable’s live-streaming API and maintaining a persistent socket connection during live auctions, Raizlabs was able to simulate a near-instant auction experience. This unique problem solving ability and engineering skillset allowed Raizlabs to deliver a great live auction experience on mobile, where connections aren’t always lightning fast.
