Vancouver Auction Software Company Offers Tips on Conducting Charity Auctions

Vancouver software solutions company releases the latest installment in a blog series designed to help charities run successful silent auctions

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - July 21, 2016) - The developers of unique charity silent auction event software, AuctionZoom, have turned their blog into a helpful resource of tips and tricks for anyone interested in learning how to run great auction events. Their latest post is part 2 of their series How to Run an Auction Fundraiser for Charities and addresses details like tracking bid/paddle numbers, handling overflow, managing unregistered guests, using BidStation and PayStation to provide the ExpressPay experience, and the ExpressPay procedure. For more information, go to:

The information featured in the blog goes beyond auction software solutions and reflects the kind of experience the AuctionZoom team has gained working through numerous charity auctions.

"Over the past 10 years, we've gained a lot of experience and insights on silent auctions can be run without long lines." Said John Foster, Managing Director. "You don't need to purchase expensive technology that virtualizes a social event and turns it into a boring video game of bidding with mobile devices. Just follow some basic procedures and organize the auction without inexpensive software and you'll raise more money and have happier guests. Foster says that additional articles and videos are in the works to be added to the blog.

He feels that providing free resources such as the articles, how-to videos and an open invitation to call to discuss auction challenges will help introduce potential customers to his company's solutions as well as empower them with valuable knowledge. "Our software is affordable, powerful and intuitive. When combined with some practical silent auction organizing knowledge, users become fundraising superheroes for their causes." added Foster.

Visitors can try AuctionZoom's fundraiser software solutions to see how they can simultaneously improve the customer experience and lighten the administrative workload of running a benefit auction event. They can download a trial package of BidStation and PayStation for free. This trial package comes with a merchant account already set up for payment simulations and a sample database of records to work with.
