Attendware Helps United Way Better Engage Donors Around Community Work

Event Management Solution Provides Time and Cost Savings During Fund Raising Events

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2014) - Attendware, the innovator of event management software solutions, today announced United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley has successfully adopted Attendware, an online software solution that helps event organizers produce successful events by simplifying and automating event registration, check-in and attendee management. United Way is using the solution to simplify events to better connect and engage donors around their work supporting the region's children, youth, and families.

Nonprofit events serve an important role in fundraising, as sponsors, major donors, sports figures, high profile executives, celebrities, and caring citizens all come together around charitable giving. Providing an extraordinary experience at events can be the difference in whether they maintain or increase their engagement with a nonprofit. Attendware provides a valuable piece of this experience, alerting event organizers as soon as VIPs walk in the door, using attendee data to create seating arrangements, and grouping people with like interests, adding to the overall success of the event.

"Before using Attendware, we were often at the office all night the evening before an event, finalizing preparations," said Molly Neville, Director of Events for United Way. "The time saved by automating a lot of these functions has allowed us to focus more on the guest's experience, from the minute they walk in the door to post-event communications that further engage them in volunteer opportunities and upcoming events that support our work."

"We help organizations like United Way stay focused on their mission by eliminating many of the time-consuming activities associated with fund raising events," said John Donnelly III, Chief Revenue Officer at Attendware. "It has allowed United Way to free up resources and to get creative, spending more time implementing innovative new event elements to engage their guests and keep them coming back."
