Woolbid : a major step forward

Maggs, A. (1985) Woolbid : a major step forward. Elders Weekly, 8 August 1985. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]


A major step towards sale by description system was officially launched in Perth recently by Elders Pastoral. Woolbid is a computer based marketing system which will complement the present open cry wool auction system. The national manager for the new system Alan Harris said Woolbid was not presented as a substitute for the current system, but would operate initially for about 10 percent of the wool catalogue, Australia wide. He believes Woolbid will overcome some of the problems faced by the wool auction industry and will provide flexibility and alternatives in the market place. The first Woolbid sales will be held in Fremantle, Sydney and Melbourne during the week of 9 September 1985.
