Among the changes planned for this spring are the introduction of a secure area, ‘mySothebys’, where clients can gain access to their account information, buying and selling history, open balances and see real-time account updates.

New online features will also allow for pre-registration for bidding paddles, instant magnification of lot images, personalised lists of upcoming lots, saved searches and paperless options for invoices and statements.

Sotheby’s CEO Bill Ruprecht said: “At any time, from any place, anywhere in the world, our clients can access state-of-the art search capabilities.

“They can enjoy outstanding imaging and zooming features which bring art and objects alive and view their own personal and confidential client account information in a safe and secure way.”

Sotheby’s also plan to introduce streaming videos of their evening sales, starting this May in New York.
