RM’s Sothebys

RM Sotheby’s is the world's foremost collector car auctioneer. Needing to move out from under their outdated, proprietary ColdFusion website, they turned to Stateside to help build a modern, easy-to-use CMS. Sotheby engaged Stateside to analyze their current website to determine the best scalable CMS and CDN solution. Stateside assembled a team to provide new UX, design and development services.
