GiveSmart doesn’t just produce amazing technology; we produce amazing experiences for your guests.
Stress-Free From The Start
A dedicated Event Coordinator from GiveSmart is on hand the moment the planning begins--advising on everything from selecting the right items to starting prices to event timelines.
With you throughout the entire process, the GiveSmart Event Coordinator becomes an invaluable part of your team.
BidPad: More Hands-on Help
Hundreds of fully trained, experienced Customer Service Representatives are ready to help make your event a record-breaking success. Anticipating any potential problems, GiveSmart Representatives go above and beyond to ensure your event runs smoothly.
From helping guests find their tables to spotting winners, we’re always working to enhance your affair. To encourage bidding, we actively engage guests—building rapport with older donors or anyone who may be hesitant about using technology. If that doesn’t work, we’re happy to assist as “personal shoppers.”
As part of our Auction Service, using our unique application, BidPad, our staff are able to place bids or donations on behalf of donors ensuring everyone in the room participate fully at the event.
Far from the do-it-yourself approach of some providers, GiveSmart offers one-of-a-kind, customized solutions.
With us, it’s personal. GiveSmart treats every event as if it were our own. Because we support the causes that you champion, GiveSmart has a vested interest in your success.
While every event is unique, our goal is always the same: provide energizing expertise and more hands-on help, every step of the way.
From choosing the right reserve prices to creating an event timeline—an assigned Event Coordinator will advise and assist. You’ll feel the momentum start to build as we develop your customized website designed for pre- bidding and donations.
After setting up the network, our Event Support Team will be on site to facilitate and monitor at the auction, encourage and assist guests with bidding, take payments, and help in any way.
The event may be over, but GiveSmart will still be working—collecting any outstanding payments and generating invaluable post-event reports to add insight to all future fundraising efforts.
10 Day Payment Promise
We take your money very seriously. To that end, we secure, collect and protect all payments made at your event, give you open access to all the numbers, and release funds in as little as ten days.
What Our Customers Say
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.
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!
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.
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.
