OneCause helped us take our Silent Auctions to the next level.
Our nonprofit runs several large events per year. I used to dread running the Silent Auction because managing pen and paper bids for over 300 people was a nightmare. We started looking into mobile bidding and check-in, and OneCause was by far the most streamlined, attractive, and accessible software we came across.
The OneCause team is amazing. We decided to switch over to the software just two weeks before a major event, and they made sure the software and our staff were trained and ready to go. If I had any questions, I could just call their support team, who are all incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. They even sent an event specialist to assist us at the event. I have never had a smoother check-in!
Our guests loved the site and found it so easy to use. OneCause gives you so many options to customize your pages and give shout-outs to your donors! The potential for on-site activation is endless, and our sponsors were more than pleased. I love that OneCause can project a scoreboard that tracks donations in real time and gives donors recognition on screen!
We doubled our Silent Auction proceeds that night---keep in mind we only had OneCause for two weeks! Not only that, but every single pledge was fulfilled by the end of the week.The ability to text donors directly during and after the event makes a huge difference for Silent Auction and Pledge Fulfillment.
So far, the site has been so easy to use and the support so good that I have yet to run into any technical issues. What is new to us is that ticket sales have to be done through your OneCause site and not your organization's webpage. We are looking into ways to either embed the page into our website or redirect to OneCause from our main website so as to avoid confusion and driving traffic away from the main site.
Worth the investment. The software is easy to use, has a variety of options for customization, and the support team is top notch. If you want to take your fundraising event to the next level, OneCause is one of the best options out there.
Streamlined check-in, check-out, and Silent Auction. Hitting fundraising goals much sooner and more efficiently. Scoreboard and customization makes a bigger impact on donors, and the software allows us to capture and store information. Integration with Salesforce makes it easy to manage event data, and payment processing is much easier.
