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 Needing to move out from under their outdated, proprietary ColdFusion website, they turned to Stateside to help build a modern, easy-to-use CMS.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.
Using Umbraco hosted on Microsoft Azure we were able to develop a website that contains more than 50,000 content nodes and provides easy management of over 250,000 hi-res images and associated metadata - using over one terabyte of space in Azure Cloud Storage.
Our solution included the following technologies:

Stateside delivered a functionally designed CMS allowing Sotheby to seamlessly publish new content in real-time. The new website provided users the familiar experience of participating in collectible car auctions. Users were able to register for auctions, gather a wealth of information about the vehicles listed, and participate in the auction - all on the new Sotheby website.
New enterprise CMS
Elevated user experience
Stateside’s implementation of our website has provided us with a much more user-friendly interface for making updates and keeping our site fresh and exciting. We love the ease with which we can manage a huge number of high resolution images, a very stable, rapid and low-maintenance website.
