Bringing highly accurate and relevant search results to clients of the leading auction house in the blink of an eye
Due to the limited availability of documentation, the development team had to build up the functionalities by reverse engineering. The collaboration and tight communication with Christie's Stakeholders was key in ensuring building an optimal solution.
Moving to SaaS
The joint team faced several challenges such as slow performance, high costs, multiple systems to maintain, and legacy technologies. Christie's has migrated the logic to the SaaS model, significantly reducing the need to maintain applications and infrastructure.
Real time cooperation

10% of the original costs
With the new search solution, the operational costs were decreased by 90%. These savings could be routed to another value stream.
In such an exclusive and time sensitive business, the data must be precise and consistent across all the systems. Delivering relevant results fast is imperative to make the best business decisions.
