VANCOUVER, BC and PITTSBURGH, PA, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Ritchie Bros. (NYSE and TSX: RBA), the world's largest seller of used industrial equipment, and AssetWorks, a leading provider of Enterprise Asset Management software solutions, today announced the availability of a prepackaged integration between the Ritchie Bros.

Designed to allow AssetWorks' customers the ability to seamlessly post assets to EquipmentOne, the integration can dramatically reduce the time and effort required to identify, list and sell surplus equipment.
"Our integration with AssetWorks' software is a great example of how much our customers are shaping our business," said Chris Connell, President of Ritchie Bros. EquipmentOne.

They receive daily pricing feedback and final sale data when the sale completes. Automating these processes can improve accuracy and significantly reduce the time to conduct sales across a number of different asset categories.
