25. What is Control Hub?

Our view on the ControlHub/API is a technology platform but not a general user platform. It is a platform and tool for software developers to easier create new auction site for customer by using the common architecture platform – ControlHub then pick and choose the pre packaged features – API to integrate into new auction site for customer. This ControlHub is not a platform for “non-software developer” customer to purchase a license then login to ControlHub then pick and choose API themselves.

The fundamental of the platform and tool for software developer is important in guiding how we going to market the business model. Those who don’t want to pay for the price to develop WhiteLabel auction site, they can take advantage of our offer in business model. We have taken all the common functions and features of auction site and packaged into pre-coded API features. Although it still requires software developers (our’s or customer’s) to develop the front-end and integrate back-end with API features to build the auction site for customer. The advantage is lower the cost. The disadvantage is limited customization with existing available API functions and features.

The software code of ControlHub and API features are not to be sold to any specific customer. They will only have “right to use” licenses. Any customer ask for software code, that business have to be put in WhiteLabel model with price for the code.

Also every year we will developer features such as Cancel Bid which is applicable to customers in control hub.
