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
You and your team at GiveSmart have been a tremendous resource. From the early planning phases to event day GiveSmart has provided us with exceptional support and guidance. At our most important event of the year GiveSmart helped us to deliver a successful auction experience. Please extend our sincere appreciation to your team.
We were completely thrilled with every way Give Smart assisted us, from our first phone call to our final closing report. They couldn't have been more pleasant and prompt in responding to our needs. My numerous conversations with our Client Service Specialist, became as comfortable as talking with an old friend. The efficiency, professionalism and overall friendliness of their team was amazing. Our event was a huge financial success with the assistance of GiveSmart.
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.
Every step of the way, your GiveSmart team provided our staff and volunteers with expert guidance and prompt support. Working with you and your team was a terrific experience. We look forward to a long-term partnership with GiveSmart and have no doubt that with your help, we'll be able to improve our fundraiser and increase our revenue.
I am a GiveSmart customer for life. This technology has taken what used to be a HUGE headache for our small non-profit and turned it into something that helps us raise even more funds while eliminating the hassle of processing payments and handling check-out. I can’t believe we ever used to do this on our own with bid sheets and credit card swipers!
