BSA Go High Tech

New technology will add to convenience

17741-Stylus-pen-for-touch-tablets-pen-and-tablet_largeBloodstock SA have announced that they will be launching their new ground-breaking technology at the Val de Vie Sale in Franschhoek on Sunday 22nd February, 2015.

New bar-coded buyer’s cards will be in use for the first time, and all previous buyer’s cards will no longer be valid.

The system will work with the aid of tablets that will be used to scan the buyer’s card once the horse has been sold.

The tablets automatically link to the IT system and confirm that the card is valid, and that one is within the credit limit. The vendor roll-clerk will then enter the lot number from a drop-down list, fill in the price details as well as the insurance and relevant sweepstakes or added stakes options.

The buyer  will sign on the tablet and immediately receive a receipt printed from a portable printer. This receipt will detail the cost of the horse, as well as all other relevant costs based on the insurance and added stakes/sweepstakes options, giving the buyer an immediate total cost.

The buyer will use the receipt as proof of purchase in order to obtain the vendor release slip at the accounts office.

A pro-forma invoice will also be issued with the vendor release slip. A copy of the pro-forma invoice is also sent automatically to the designated e-mail address.

All gold card and permanent buyers in good standing will be able to collect their buyer’s card at the Val de Vie sale.

All other buyers will need to apply in advance for a buyer’s card.

bsa_vdv15-diamond-mastheadBSA have urged interested parties to do this as soon as possible, in order that the necessary credit checks can be performed.

Collection of the buyer’s card at the Val de Vie sale (all classes of buyer’s cards), will put the holder in line with a chance to win a diamond necklace valued at R 30 000.

The diamond necklace has been kindly donated by eDiamond.

Details of qualification for this prize will be announced soon.
