I created Silent Auction Pro out of an identified need for better fundraising tools for my club. All of our employees also have experience in organizing fundraising events, and they still actively engage in fundraising for their charities using our Silent Auction Pro platform. As a result of over 15 years of experience, Silent Auction Pro is carefully tailored to streamline all of the organizers’ tasks simplifying running the event while at the same time improving the guest experience. Silent Auction Pro’s interface is intuitive and easy-to-use from the first click, enabling organizers to deploy proven strategies to set up an unrivaled fundraising event.
What are the benefits of Silent Auction Pro’s online auction applications MobilePlusTM and MobileProTM?
With Silent Auction Pro's MobilePlus and MobilePro options, people who are not physically at the event can bid against those that are at the event. This is a way to increase the revenue of the auction by encouraging more bidding. Every bid - regardless if it is the winning bid increases the revenue to the organization. The platform automatically sends text and email notifications when a guest is outbid in addition to the guest being able to see their bid status directly on their device.
What are the main pain points of a fundraising event, and how is Silent Auction Pro handling it?
Check-in and check-out are typically the biggest challenges for event organizers. Silent Auction Pro streamlines the check-in process, first by allowing the event organizers to sell tickets to their event online which also signs them up for online bidding and securely stores their credit card on file for later use. For those who do not pre-register for the event, we simplify the on-site check-in process by minimizing the information required to only the information that is truly required. Once the guest is checked in, the check-in clerk can send the guest an instant login link to allow the guest to start bidding on items immediately.
Silent Auction Pro simplifies the whole process of running a charitable fundraising event helping organizers raise more money while improving the guest experience
In addition, Silent Auction Pro helps event organizers by simplifying the process of tracking donors and donations, and creating auction items thereby allowing extra time to focus on securing better auction items and coming up with other creative ways of raising money at their event. We can also help with consignment based items for groups who need a few one-of-a-kind items at their event.
