What Our Customers Say
As i have said repeatedly to our board members, friends and supporters, we have no intention of ever doing an event such our Taste and Golf events without GiveSmart! Your fabulous team was on target this year with the pre-swiping of credit cards, registrations and professional attitude that made checkin and checkout a dream! And, the follow up reports you provided were clear, concise, and allowed us to close our event in record time!
As you know this was the first time that our Temple has used a bidding company during our annual auction. I can't tell you how happy I am that we did so. You service is more than efficient and easy to use. Having our auction online made us more money than we would have, had we done the traditional silent auction. Most of all it was all less work for me and I actually got to enjoy the event.
Thank you for the outstanding customer service, follow up and follow through GiveSmart provided to the Indiana State Chapter, JDRF at our recent Promise Gala held April 12,2014. Our team was delighted that the silent auction broke all records and raised $84,000! We believe this is due primarily to the technology you provided.
From entering the data on to our "Dash Board" to staffing our event with professional and helpful employees, our event was seamless. We exceeded our auction projections by gigantic proportions. Again GiveSmart proves themselves to be money well invested. So much so, I am here to say that I don't see myself ever having an event of such magnitude without GiveSmart at my side.
This was our first experience with mobile bidding and Give-Smart did a great job explaining how the mobile bidding system would work, what was expected of us, and the advantages of its use. The Give-Smart employees that we talked to were very friendly, easy to work with from the planning stage weeks before the event to the end of the evening. On the night of the event, check-In was a breeze, bidding went smoothly, and check-out was quick and simple. Very impressed with Give-Smart and would definitely use them for next years Silent Auction.
