Managing silent auctions can be difficult without the right software application. Pearl Bids will help you set up your auction and manage your donations and billing, quickly and easily.
With its iTunes-like interface, you quickly feel at home with the Silent Auction app. Pearl Bids provides tools to help you organize a virtually unlimited number of silent auctions, silent auction items, and contacts.
Organizing your silent auction with Pearl Bids is a breeze:
It is handy to organize your auction according to table name (Spa Table, Travel Table, Dining Table, etc.). The Silent Auction app, Pearl Bids, allows you to easily print out alisting of each item on a table, including a small graphic and donor recognition. Combined together, these table lists create the perfect booklet/catalog for your attendees.
Your guests will love the personlaized name badges that include their bid number as well as their name. You will love that no additional infomation is necessary for you to create these name badges. Simply pull up your attendee contact information and select Print Name Tags from the pull down menu.
Easily edit your donations. Copy and paste pictures to correspond with each donation. Enter the market value, starting bid, and minimum bid step; link the donation to the donor, even switch the donation to another auction.
It is handy to organize your auction according to table name (Spa Table, Travel Table, Dining Table, etc.). The Silent Auction app, Pearl Bids, lets you enter donations by table, move donations among tables, and enter bids by table. You can also close bidding for each table at different times. The table name is printed on the bid sheet to keep you organized.
Once you have finished entering the bids at your silent auction, you can see at a glance how you are doing for each auction - the potential amount to be raised and how much actually was raised.
Keeping a history of the silent auction: Because you can run many auctions over time, you can reuse your donor contacts and attendee contacts. You can easily duplicate a donation so it is not necessary to enter the description each year.
When guests sign-in, you can collect their payment information and thank them for donations they have made to this auction and bids made in previous years. This a great opportunity for your greeters to recognize the VIPs.
When you print your Sign In Sheet, a personalized sheet is generated for the attendee to keep. With the Attendee’s name and bidding number right on this sheet, great for their silent-auction bidding, the live-auction bidding (Hold up that number!) or raffle tickets.
Both your donors and attendees are important. They can be the same person - someone who donates to your auction might also bid at your auction. Pearl Bids keeps track of these great supporters of your cause. No need to enter them twice. We track what they donated and on which items they bid, making it super easy to get started when you start preparing for your next auction.
If you raise funds for a non-profit or NGO, a silent auction app needs to report who donated and what they donated to your auction. To help, we’ve built the accounting donation report! The accouting donation report can be emailed as a pdf or as a CSV file, for easy import in Mac OSX Numbers, MS excel, Quickbooks, etc.
