Howard Lake | 15 July 2008 | News

TAAP (The Application Airtime Provider) working in conjunction with The League Against Cruel Sports, launched their hand held PDA’s* as a fundraising tool at the IoF Convention this week. Paul George, Sales Director and Jo O’Neill, Head of Marketing spoke at the Focus on Face-to-Face Fundraising session.

TAAP have been working with The League to make the process of data capture more time and money efficient The League realised through their fundraising that each campaign generated a slow trickle of forms that then had to be processed back in the office. Through the technology provided by TAAP, their fundraisers were able to directly input all the required information to the PDA’s and send it straight to the office. Most importantly follow up times were greatly improved whilst the interest to support the charity was still fresh.

Taap PDAPaul George commented: “The League needed an affordable means of data-capture that was secure, accurate and would enable a very quick follow-up to replace their costly paper method of collecting supporter data when face to face fundraising. Utilising our OnTAAP Data Capture product we delivered a system that not only met all their requirements but also improved engagement with their cause through the media facility on the PDA. I am pleased to see our product being used to support positive change and look forward to its wider adoption helping charities to turn data into donors.”
