AUBURN, Ind., June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — In a strategic move to strengthen its portfolio, including its recently acquired Worldwide Auctioneers, as well as team leadership, Perpetual Industries Inc. (OTC: PRPI) completed its acquisition of the AutoGrafic Software System earlier this year (https://ibn.fm/PcJiX). PRPI is looking to create a unique offering in the world of collector cars by bringing Worldwide Auctioneers and the AutoGrafic Software System together in a synergistic offering designed to provide auto collectors, enthusiasts, restorers and lovers with a more interactive and connected experience (https://ibn.fm/YzFTj).
“This acquisition provides another foundational piece in our quickly expanding blockchain division and, in addition to outstanding software, augments our team with some truly exceptional talent,” said Perpetual Industries CEO Brent Bedford. “It will also greatly benefit Worldwide Auctioneers, our newly acquired wholly owned subsidiary, by bringing much-needed new technology and innovation to their customers and the collector car industry at large.”
AutoGrafic is a software as a service (SaaS) and social application featuring cutting-edge technology that hosts a wide array of automotive promotion and preservation services and components. The system is specifically designed to attract global collector car enthusiasts who are looking for a novel, multifaceted, interactive automotive experience focused on a visual-based social community, collection management, social events, auctions, insurance, research, preservation and historical documentation.
The software system was created by Travis LaVine and Jason Stoller of LaVine Restorations Inc., who envisioned filling a need in the car collector space for a user-friendly software that could be a singular point for the community. Based in Indiana, LaVine Restorations is a global leader in high-end classic car restoration and preservation.
“We have worked tirelessly over the past year to develop AutoGrafic as a suite of tools suited to the complex and robust collector car world,” said Lavine. “Never has there been a more important time than now to create an ecosystem that brings collectors, enthusiasts, restorers and car lovers a more interactive and connected experience, especially in light of COVID and our everchanging online world.”
As a result of the two acquisitions, Perpetual has created a new division focused on the growing collector car community. The company announced that this division will be led by LaVine, Stoller, and Perpetual’s lead software and blockchain developer Evan Witmer. This division will also include an expanded team of software developers focused on the end goal of elevating the platform and bringing it to its full potential.
AutoGrafic serves as an additional foundational component of Perpetual Industries’ rapidly expanding blockchain division. The application is expected to greatly benefit Worldwide Auctioneers by bringing new innovation and technology to its customers and the overall collector car industry. Perpetual Industries intends to capitalize on this growing marketplace sector through creating an immersive interactive experience as well as a central hub designed to attract the next generation of car enthusiasts. Plans include a mobile app, loyalty program, tokenization on the blockchain and a full suite of other multidimensional features.
In addition, PRPI noted that AutoGrafic users will be able to gain access to the system by using a mobile phone or web browser; users will be able to participate through a free plan or choose from various levels of premium plans that will provide access to advanced functions on a per-feature subscription basis.
“We are thrilled that AutoGrafic is now part of the Perpetual Industries family,” said Worldwide principal and auctioneer John Kruse. “We have had a wonderful relationship with LaVine Restorations and the AutoGrafic team for many years and believe the synergies are incredible, and we look forward to working together to bring solutions to our industry and beyond.”
