We’ve tried other bidding programs and we now have three licensed Prospectors users in our office.

Super product support, this is an author with an open ear and they really stands behind this software. User friendly and intuitive interface gets you up and running quickly. It follows the Microsoft model, so if you use Word or Excel (and who doesn’t) you will be pleased. Single and group bids are always accurately placed via an internet server and not from you desktop, so can bid while your computer is off. Searches are saved in a tree format and can be repeated and updated right from your desktop! Unlike eBay, placing items on your watch list is a breeze and with business like customizable views. You can even import your “My eBay” items!
For us Prospector is a valuable tool and this author is so confident that he produces a freeware version, so try it and then buy it, we need to support software providers like this one!
Sadly there is no exporting of the completed auctions in Prospector to Excel so that you can track cost or keep transaction history. It would be helpful if Prospector had a section that would manage auctions (IE, item received, item paid, seller's info). Perhaps in future versions?
