GiveSmart, the international software company that provides comprehensive, modern charity auction solutions, has won the award for ‘Best Technology for Event Monetisation or Fundraising’ at the Event Technology Awards 2016.
GiveSmart’s smartphone technology, coupled with tablet bidding and pre-event fundraising websites have, the company says, revolutionised charity auctions.
Award judges praised the company for its comprehensive range of services that ensure events run smoothly, including its integrated ticketing system, branded event websites and its clear and concise donor management system. Moreover, its multiple-bidding platform, which facilitates bids from anywhere in the world, has been a particular boon for its clients’ fundraising needs.
GiveSmart adds that it has secured 50% growth year on year since 2013, with an impressive and ever-increasing client list including the British Red Cross, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and Action Against Hunger.
Max Romer, Co-Founder, said “This is a defining moment for GiveSmart. We are delighted to be not only innovating and boosting fundraising capabilities for charities, but streamlining the whole events process so that even more of the proceeds go to the good causes that they represent.”
To date, GiveSmart has aided over 1,400 successful events and processed 60,000 bids for organisations like Make-A-Wish, Street Child, and Unicef.
