Eurolink, Edward Mellor and Veco-oneauctions™

  • Agents can allocate auction dates and venues and list properties to be sold – this can help with production of auction brochures;
  • Applicant and bidder data can be registered, along with relevant solicitors’ details in addition to financial information;
  • Auction results screen for recording the outcome and payment of each lot and to produce memorandum of sale;
  • After auction closes, Veco-oneacutions™ can process winning bids and produce all relevant statistics and reports;
  • Database of auction bidder contacts with history of auctions attended;
  • Database of auction properties, including marketing details, with history of auctions entered;
  • Flexible assignment of lot numbers including multiple lots under one lot number;
  • Quick Auction attendee entry and paddle number assignment allowing database search for contact and solicitor details.

Eurolink founding director Nigel Poole said: “No other system can do all this as far as we are aware. Veco-oneacutions™ offers property agents total control over the auction side of their business and this can save them from many hours of additional work – which of course also means substantial financial savings. Veco-oneacutions™ is a highly-efficient and effective system which is in increasing demand from agents who see the auctions sector as a viable market to exploit in the current economic climate.”

One of the first agencies to use Veco-oneacutions™ is South-Manchester based property group Edward Mellor. The Edward Mellor group has a long-standing relationship with Eurolink and its Managing Director Colin Mellor was instrumental in helping Eurolink shape the Veco-oneacutions™ system to exacting requirements based on his extensive experience in property auctions.

The initial Veco-oneacutions™ concept came from consultations Eurolink had with Colin Mellor after Eurolink started to develop its highly-successful all-embracing property agency CRM – the Veco -onesystem™. “At the time we designed the initial Veco-onesystem™ concept we had not included auctions – but an auction element was high on Colin Mellor’s list of priorities,” said Eurolink’s Nigel Poole. “So we spent lot of time with auction people understanding in some considerable detail how the auctions business worked and applying those applications to the software alongside all the other work we were doing. We listened to what they wanted and developed Veco-oneacutions™ around those requirements to deliver a product that truly meets the needs of our clients.”

Colin Mellor said: “Eurolink is one of those rare companies which really listens to its clients and fully understands their needs. The Edward Mellor group has worked closely with them for a number of years for this reason and we are delighted to have been involved with the development of Veco-oneacutions™. We are convinced Veco-oneacutions™ will help us make the most of this growing market by giving us immediate, accessible and understandable auctions data. To have such a comprehensive range of information to hand at all times will enable us to develop our strategic planning and grow the auctions side of our business even more.”

The Edward Mellor group takes delivery of Veco-oneacutions™ later this month – midway through its introduction of two other Eurolink products – Veco-lettingsandmanagement™ and Veco-residentialsales™. Eurolink is currently migrating Edward Mellor’s existing Eurolink Management system to Veco-residentialsales™. This will be followed by Veco-oneacutions™ in late July, with the installation of Veco-lettingsandmanagement™ completed by the end of August.

Colin Mellor said: “The property market may be fragile but the commercial opportunities arising from Eurolink’s Veco™ range mean agents can look to the future with more optimism than they might do otherwise.”
