OMIX and BestOffer.com Bring Automobile Auctions Online

Leading designer and developer of robust, scalable, and secure e-Business solutions builds sophisticated auction site, using Enterprise JavaBeans and BEA’s WebLogic™ Application Server.

Menlo Park, CA, March 8, 2000 - OMIX, Inc., a leading Internet professional services company that specializes in designing and developing robust, scalable, secure e-Business solutions, today announced that BestOffer.com has added online automobile auctions to the comprehensive set of services available on its Web site. BestOffer.com is a start-up company dedicated to providing consumers with a better way to buy and sell a used car.

The site allows consumers to register an automobile for sale and schedule an onsite mechanical inspection of their vehicle. Buyers are able to create profiles of their dream cars, research specific models, and purchase cars through auction. "BestOffer.com has huge potential," said Kyle Hurlbut, Vice President of OMIX. "Their total service, online approach could redefine the used car marketplace. In fact, I just sold my Ford on their site today and the process was so much easier than running a classified ad."

OMIX engineered the site using a three-tier architecture consisting of a database, Web server, and WebLogic™ Application Server. The site serves up dynamic content via Java Server Pages, and utilizes Enterprise JavaBeans to handle the business logic necessary to run hundreds of auctions simultaneously. "Our business is built on providing up-to-date and accurate information on used cars being auctioned on our site. Therefore, it was vital that our site be built with technologies that guarantee performance, reliability, and scalability," said Jeff Reed, Co-Founder and President of BestOffer.com. "OMIX engineered and delivered a cutting edge solution that exceeded all our requirements."
