AUBURN, Ind. , Sept. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via InvestorWire — Perpetual Industries Inc. (OTCMARKETS:PRPI) (“Perpetual” or the “Company”), an incubator for the development of new and innovative energy-efficient technologies and products, is pleased to announce the live alpha beta launch of its mobile app for the AutoGrafic Software division. The highly anticipated launch will be hosted on-site at the Worldwide Auctioneers’ Auburn Collector Car Auction, Sept. 3 and 4, 2021, and at the Kannenberg Collection Auction Sept. 10 and 11 in Auburn, Indiana. Worldwide Auctioneers is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perpetual.
Worldwide Auctioneers’ attendees will be the first to experience a sneak peek of the current version of the interactive mobile app. Various levels of subscription plans will soon become available for car enthusiasts to access functionality on a per-feature basis using their mobile phones or web browsers.
The AutoGrafic software system was born from the vision of Travis LaVine and Jason Stoller, of LaVine Restorations, to fill a need in the industry for a user-friendly software that could be a singular point for the collector car community.
“I am excited to take the next step in the development and deployment of AutoGrafic. There’s no time like the present to showcase our automotive past using new technology. This is a great step in sharing these rolling artworks in a new and different way,” said Travis Lavine, co-founder of AutoGrafic Software System. “I look forward to receiving feedback and discussing ideas that we can develop into the app as we progress. Our goal is to develop a digital platform to help the current and next generation experience the art of the automobile in a whole new way.”
AutoGrafic is a software as a service (SaaS) and social application that utilizes cutting-edge technology to host a myriad of features for automotive promotion and preservation. It is the industry’s first mobile app with a platform that aims to set a new standard for global car collectors and automotive enthusiasts. This unique, multifaceted, interactive automotive experience will include features for collection management, social events, car auctions, insurance, research, preservation and historical documentation.
“We could not have asked for a better event to test our best features than at the Worldwide auctions. We will be displaying the app to the very people it was built for,” said Evan Witmer, lead software developer at Perpetual. “This is an important piece in our blockchain division that brings much needed new technology and innovation to the collector car industry.”
The U.S. classic car market has recorded steady expansion over recent years, accounting for revenue of approximately $12.63 billion in 2020, according to Statista Research Department. The same report forecasts growth to $15.52 billion by 2023. According to data from IBISWorld, the market for classic car dealers in the U.S. was valued at $2.1 billion in 2021, achieving a CAGR of 1.5% from 2016 to 2021 despite the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Perpetual Industries’ goal is to capitalize on this currently growing marketplace sector to create an immersive interactive experience, while at the same time creating a central hub that will attract the next generation of car enthusiasts.
