Dreweatts collaborates with CoreLogic UK to develop a 21st century auction viewing experience to help solve current challenges.
Dreweatts have launched their new Dreweatts 360 Virtual Auction Tours – just in time for the return of online sales this month, which start with the reliably rewarding Fine Furniture, Sculpture, Carpets and Ceramics auction on Tues 19 May 2020.
Together with CoreLogic UK, a leading developer of technological solutions in the property industry, they will be providing an exciting and immersive new way to view auction lots before sale.
The new service will provide virtual tours that allow online visitors to enter the front doors of Dreweatts’ stunning Donnington Priory and take a walk-through tour of the lots showcased in their salerooms as if they were there in person. All from the comfort of their own home, at their own pace and at a time that suits them – especially practical under current circumstances.
“Auctioneering is one of the oldest professions and the virtual world is one of the newest technologies. To meet the new challenges facing us in today’s world, Dreweatts are combining the two to create a buying experience that is truly 21st century. Dreweatts 360 virtual auction tours from CoreLogic will allowyou to walk through the galleries at our picturesque Donnington Priory, browsing and interacting with the lots as you go.
Alongside our specialists’ advice, online lot listing and page turning e-catalogue, we hope the Dreweatts 360 experience will bring sourcing art and antiques from auctions to life in a safe and engaging way and help our clients, near and far, to imagine easily how pieces they see in our roomsets will transfer beautifully to their own
home.” Jonathan Pratt, Managing Director, Dreweatts
CoreLogic UK have been operating since 2002, primarily developing solutions within the property services industry, with their Virtual Tours service having been mostly used within the Residential Estate Agency world. However, recognising how flexible their service can be as a tool to enhance other markets, they were delighted when Dreweatts agreed to work with them to develop their first auction house solution and collaboration.
“Since the launch of CoreLogic’s virtual tours service to the UK Residential Estate Agency market last year, we’ve had an incredible response from businesses looking for next level property marketing.
Dreweatts are the first auction house to partner with us and we are delighted to be working with them. It’s situations like we face today, where 3D virtual walk-through tours have a recognised place to keep businesses trading. CoreLogic’s virtual tours will enable Dreweatts to showcase their auction collections online with a truly immersive and engaging digital experience, allowing customers to view auction collections up close, from anywhere.” Stewart McRae, Sales Director, CoreLogic UK
