London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 14 November 2012
London-based Multi-Platform developers Miomni have been appointed by Argonon to build and design the online platform, CashInTheAttic.com, in preparation for a planned launch early next year. Tasked with creating the definitive global online hub for fans of antiques and collectibles, Miomni will work closely with Cash in the Attic Ltd MD Martin Lowde on the project.
Miomni will help bring the much-loved television format - which has, to date, been sold to 167 countries worldwide – into the online space by creating a user-friendly platform to allow antiques fans to meet online to talk about collectibles; obtain valuations for items online and sell their antiques and collectibles through the site. CashInTheAttic.com will also be a vital resource for the antique community, providing up-to-date information about insider tips. At the heart of CashInTheAttic.com will be social and community functions and the website will be supported by a Facebook application that Miomni are also creating.
Miomni are providing a Digital Media Platform for cloud based content and asset management controlling seamless multi-platform distribution with centralised management and editorial control across all sites and applications. As CashInTheAttic.com will feature video footage from the series, Miomni are introducing an automated P-Linking (Product Linking) function to allow users to access similar items from the show to their own or those selected on the screen.
Cash in the Attic Ltd is an Argonon company, and Martin Lowde is reporting directly to Argonon CEO James Burstall on the project. The web build will be overseen by Miomni CEO, Mike Venner and managed on a day-to-day basis by Account Executive Sharn Christopher.
Scheduled to launch in early 2013, CashInTheAttic.com will evolve further over the next 12 months with plans for Connected TV applications and dual screen capabilities in the pipeline.
Speaking about the appointment, Martin Lowde comments: “This is a really exciting development for the antique and collectible markets, as well as fans of the show across the world. People will be able to use the site to discover, value and trade their items and for the first time we are bringing together a fantastic array of resources to help people whether they are trading at a car boot sale, or looking to trade a grand master.”
Mike Venner, CEO of Miomni, adds: “We are very proud to be working with Argonon on CashInTheAttic.com and believe that we can help to power their business across multiple platforms, beyond the web to both mobile apps and TV apps. Our cloud-based asset and content management platform has been built from day one with this multi-channel future in mind and our particular expertise covers UI design, to ensure that content is showcased to offer the optimal viewing experience, whether that be on TV, web or mobile.”
