The software also validates bank advises and accurately captures donor’s signature.
· Freedom for field workers: The field workers can make use of the software and send a ‘Thanking SMS’ to the donors. The SMS can include details like the purpose for which the donation was collected, the amount, date when the amount was collected and so on. In addition to this, the software developed by agencies like the UK charity marketing ensures that every donation is acknowledged through an ‘auto email’ to every donor.
