My Client Zone
Clients have their own secure area where they can manage their online valuations, consignments, purchases and invoicing requests. Even valuation appointments can be changed or cancelled by the client in their Client Zone. Over the last two years Snoofa have moved as many processes to within the Client Zone as possible. This gives the client a feeling of control over the experience, and reduces the work load on staff. Before invoices are generated the client is taken through set questions (VAT registration / delivery address / special requests) the answers to which all have a bearing on the invoice content. In this way, Snoofa gets buyers to complete their own admin needs, vastly reducing the workload of the admin teams.
No where is clarity and ease of use more important than with Cashiers, and Snoofa has been designed with this in mind. Cashiers pages provide quick glance symbols with an easy overview of invoice status. Before invoices are produced, the client answers some of the key questions that will affect the total. This transfers a lot of the administrative burden and liability away from the auction house and to the buyer. Snoofa has worked with a specialist team of developers to integrate effortlessly with existing accountancy software providers. In the age of digital VAT returns, this is increasingly important.
Snoofa was started by two auction house Directors with a third Private Equity shareholder. All three live by the maxim that companies can struggle because management are ill-informed about the financial health of their business. As a result, Snoofa provides clear, easy to read statistics across the board.
