Hi, I'm Michael Nehring from ThriftCart. What can the donation pickup scheduling program do for you? It will help you in three large ways. Specifically, it will help you
- Save fuel
- Save staff time
- And improve donor relations.
Let's take those one at a time.
ThriftCart will help you save fuel in two main ways. First, it will set the pickup order on a given day to minimize driving time. Second, it will suggest the best days for new pickups to help geographically cluster pickups on any one given day. Here's a question: how much do you spend per mile driving your trucks? Remember, you have fuel, maintenance and repairs, tires, and insurance.
ThriftCart helps save staff time. ThriftCart automates a lot of tasks that staff is spending time on right now. Data-entry is simplified. No more copying and pasting between tables. With its simple user interface, you will spend far less time on the tedious data management tasks that come along with handling donation pickups. Here's something to ponder: How much does staff time cost you? What else could your donation scheduling staff be doing right now with some extra time?
ThriftCart helps improve donor relations. ThriftCart has built-in donor relationship management features, such as prompts for reminder calls, pickup confirmation e-mails, thank-you letters, digital receipts, and reports on repeat donors. These built-in features for donor relations remind the donor that you are a diligent organization, and that you care about their gifts to you and about them. Ask yourself this: How many more donations would you get, from existing and from new donors, if had an even greater reputation for being the best-run donation pickup service in the area?
So, how do you envision ThriftCart helping you?
