Fundraising is Essential... Auction! makes it easy

Who We Are:

Auction Systems has provided fundraising software to more than 5,000 non-profit customers for over 15 years.


Barbara Crane purchased the Auction! software package for running her own school's annual auctions. Several years of success and enthusiastic participation led her to purchase the company in 1996. Building on the earlier robust software, customer surveys, and inquiries, Version 2 was developed and released in 1998. Customers provided great suggestions, and Version 3 was released in 2003.  We continue to grow, and enhance the software as we respond to our clients.


We have assembled a terrific team of sales and support specialist who are ready and willing to assist you.

Barbara is a native of Texas, and attended Catholic schools before taking her degree as a metallurgical & materials engineering graduate of MIT.  Barbara worked for Digital Equipment Corporation for 16 years, and Quantum Corporation for 1 1/2 years developing magnetic recording disks and heads, and providing customer support and reliability analysis for disk drives.

When not working, Barbara and her family enjoy camping in the nearby Colorado mountains.  She loves singing in her church choir and is an active member of Rotary.  Barbara developed her alumni class website, MIT Class of 1977.
