Bishop & Miller – Website Development

Development of two new websites for this auction and valuation company, with added SMART functions and bespoke content management facility

THE COMPANY

Auction and valuation firm, Bishop & Miller has over 20 years of experience holding regular fine art and antique sales and specialist auctions from their base in Stowmarket, Suffolk. They run 2-3 auctions per month with between 600 – 1000 lots being auctioned each time.

THE CHALLENGE

We started working with Bishop & Miller in 2016. Their current website had become difficult to manage and struggled to cope with their requirement to regularly upload hundreds of images for new auctions.

As part of the project, they also wanted the new website to become a place they could communicate with their audience online, sharing information about upcoming events and images of new items to be auctioned.

HOW WE HELPED

Our experienced team worked with Bishop & Miller to build a new site tailored to their specific needs. Not only was the site built with the ability to easily upload multiple images, it also included a bespoke element to the Content Management System where they could manage their auction catalogues.
To ensure the website will continue to grow with the business, the new CMS includes SMART functions to allow users to search for items, bid online, create wishlists and view related items.
As part of the project, we were also asked to build a microsite for a sister company they recently launched for probate services. This needed to be an independent website but one that also complemented Bishop & Miller’s overall brand.

THE RESULTS

As a result of launching both websites, Bishop & Miller have found the sites to be more efficient and easy to manage. With the introduction of SMART functions and the ability to add and manage more content, they have also seen an increase in customer engagement.
