McConkey Plans Migration to EBlock

By Staff Writer April 28, 2021

The McConkey Auction Group says its Southwestern digital auction company, ABS, will migrate to EBlock this summer. As MAG’s Pacific Northwest digital platform partner since January 2020, EBlock, now provides ABS customers with a unique experience where buyers and sellers can more efficiently address inventory needs through digital auctions. The move to EBlock will enhance customer offerings and online user experience in a variety of ways and unifies the ABS and MAG digital experience.

“EBlock has provided us with the opportunity to expand its exceptional technology throughout our organization,” said MAG CEO and President Bob McConkey. “ABS and EBlock similarly deliver a live auction experience; the migration of ABS to EBlock will combine our Pacific Northwest and Southwest digital footprints into one integrated marketplace.”

The technology migration for ABS customers enhances what they already experience by:

  • Replicating the excitement of a live auction through a digital experience to meet customers where they are 
  • Adapting to users’ workflows using a suite of scalable features
  • Maximizing the number of vehicles, buyers, sellers, and auctions available 
  • Creating trust through features and functionality that provide transparency throughout the experience.

The EBlock platform empowers ABS and MAG customers with access to technology that delivers nationwide run lists, live virtual lanes, and an Hourly Auction channel with set end times giving regular opportunities to win more inventory in less time. This also allows dealers to buy and sell inventory, on their own schedule, regardless of their location.

“Having the opportunity to work with pioneers like ABS and the McConkey Auction Group is exciting,” said Jason McClenahan, EBlock, president and CEO.

The ABS technology migration is in-progress and will be completed by early summer 2021. Current ABS customers will receive a series of communications to walk them through the change, which includes live demos, Q&As, and regular access to a deep team of experts.
