Update: MartEye’s services impacted by global outage

MartEye has, this morning (Tuesday, June 8th, 2021), confirmed that an apparent “major internet outage” is currently impacting its services.

That’s Farming contacted the online mart sales system shortly after 11 am after we received queries from readers who are experiencing some issues accessing the auction system via mobile and desktop-based applications.

In a brief statement, a spokesperson for MartEye, said: “We are currently having an issue with a CDN which is affecting services, working on a workaround ASAP.”

“Seems to be part of a major internet outage as many of world’s biggest websites crash, including Amazon, UK government and Reddit.”

Shortly after 12pm, a spokesperson for MartEye told That’s Farming said:

“Fastly had a major outage which affected our platform. The issue has been resolved and we are monitoring it.”

MartEye

Award-winning agricultural software engineers founded MartEye at the beginning of COVID-19 to help marts and farmers buy and sell livestock online.

Over 50 marts and auction centres across Ireland and the UK uses MartEye to sell livestock, land, and machinery. Within six months after launching, the Portershed-based firm grew at a phenomenal rate with over 50,000 active users.

Previously, MartEye co-founder, Mark McGann, said: “Our goal was to create a product that would be affordable, easy to use and could be set-up quickly.”

“We consulted with mart owners early on to establish their needs along with the needs of the sellers and buyers.”

“We currently have over 50k active users. More than €150 million has been sold through the platform in just a few short months.”

“When marts started letting buyers in again, our downloads and engagement continued to grow at pace. The average time people spend in an app is usually around 5 minutes. With MartEye, it is five times that.”

“Tens of thousands” of buyers rely on MartEye to purchase stock every day.

Rostrum

Earlier this year, MartEye, launched Rostrum, a new app empowering auctioneers to “run sales from anywhere”.

The company believes the application, which has been in development for months, is a “world-first”.

In a brief post on social media on Saturday (February 27th), a spokesperson for MartEye, said:

“Can’t make it to the mart? Just bring the mart to you. Introducing Rostrum, our new app empowering auctioneers to run sales from anywhere.”

“This has been months in development, and we believe is a world first. If you are a mart and want to do a remote sale, get in touch.”
