Page 4 Why Electronic Fundraising More Time to Bid: The silent auction can be open throughout the cocktail hour, dinner, dessert and even later if you choose. This leads to more bids, driving up the revenue and market value of the items Mobility: Guests are able to enjoy the event from anywhere in the room without having to hover around the item sheets Control: One database can collect bids, pledges, raffle tickets and live auction items and create a comprehensive report post-event of all donations from the event Convenient, Simple & Fun: Handsets and tablets add an extra interactive level to your event that your guests will find intuitive and easy to use

Page 11 When a guest has been outbid on an item, a notification simply pops up on the screen of their handset which allows them to re-bid, wait or ignore the item. These instant outbid alerts enable competitive guests to re-bid on their favorites immediately, driving up the winning price and increasing revenue. Outbid Alerts
