By registering your guests and pre-authorizing their credit card as they arrive, we make a great first impression and lay the foundation for a very successful event.
How It Works:
Our registration process starts long before your event date, when we import your donor information into our system and merge that with any ticket sales data. This allows us to identify VIP guests and assign tables in advance.
On the night of your event, we greet guests with our handy check-in app. With their info at our fingertips, we can register guests for your auction or pledge drive, give them a bidding ID, and direct them to their table. Plus, we offer them the convenience of pre-authorizing a credit card to pay for any auction items or donations.
At your end, you can see in real time how many guests have checked in and when your VIPs arrive on your dashboard.
- Pre-authorize payments for auction items or donations
- Determine guest’s preference for mobile or text bidding
- Assign a bidder ID per guest
- Confirm guest’s table number
- Avoid registration lines
- Receive access to the active guest list
- Receive alerts when VIP guests and sponsors arrive
Super Efficient Check-In App
Rather than planting scouts at the door to alert you when certain attendees arrive or funneling your patrons into a long line to receive a place card, we’ve created a new approach for welcoming and signing in guests as they arrive at an event - the GiveSmart check-in app. This intuitive, digital solution evolves the registration process from annoying to efficient easily.
Your guests can use the tablets provided by the Customer Service Representatives serving at the event or download the app to their personal cell to quickly check-in to the location on their own. This cuts down on the time your patrons will spend languishing in the lobby and instead put them right in the action of the event faster.
Plus, with instant notifications when your flagged VIPs have arrived, you can plan your night with more precision than ever before and ensure that you:
- Are PCI Compliant
- Receive Secure Payments
Mobilize Your Donors. Expedite Your Fundraising.
We think like donors and fundraising teams.
We are constantly innovating to make giving easier
and event management and administration more efficient.
What Our Customers Say
Thank you again so much for making the Foothill High School Marching Band Silent Auction such a success. Allowing anyone with a smartphone or computer to participate in the Silent Auction is truly the next level of charitable giving. You were positive and motivating right from the start. You made what seemed like an overwhelming task possible.
As an event planner, the best part about using the GiveSmart team is how easy they make running an auction. The increased revenue is nice, but the fact that I did not have to worry about check out, or monitoring the auction tables or the auction at all, gave me the freedom I needed to mingle with guests, network and take care of other event issues.
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!
During my time with LLS, I have not experienced working with a vendor with such a high level of customer service, before, during and after the event! The GiveSmart team enhanced our revenue generation during every process of the event. We continued to use this service with our Man Woman of the Year® campaigns in 2015, and look forward to having their services at our upcoming events!
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.
