Do I Need An Onsite Tech At My Fundraiser?

GalaBid's number one aim is to help you raise as much money as possible for your cause. It's why our fundraising digital platform is available as a self-run service or with a GalaBid onsite tech to help you at your fundraising event. But how do you know which service offering is right for you? Here's when an onsite tech can be a big help:

  1. It's Your First Fundraising Event

If you're using a digital platform for the first time, it can be a good idea to have an onsite tech available. In addition to peace of mind, your technical support can help you establish the optimum process for setting up your event. From platform download to auction payments, it's a great opportunity to get comfortable with what needs to be done and when it needs to be done by.

  1. You Don't Have Access To Tech Savvy Support

Our platform really is super easy to use, however, a degree of tech know-how will help you get the most from the system. Some fundraising organisations have large committees and can find a tech savvy volunteer within their midst who can help out. But if you don't have access to an in-house tech guru, our onsite tech is a great option.

  1. You Need An Extra Pair Of Hands

If you're responsible for running the fundraising event in its entirety you may find organising the auction tech is a job too far! Our onsite tech could be the extra pair of hands you need to free up more of your time.

  1. Your Guests Need Some TLC

Helping guests get up and running with downloading the digital auction platform can take up lots of time. An onsite tech can help guests get to grips with the technology. They can also brief your volunteers on the platform and how they can help guests register.

  1. You Need Help (And Some Extra Equipment!)

Our onsite tech will arrive with 2 laptops and 5 iPads. If you don't have ready access to additional technology, our tablets are perfect to give to volunteers to help them register guests.
