Retail management system provider, Cybertill, is innovating its mobile point of sale (mPOS) solution to help improve the charity retail experience for staff, customers and donors.
As one of the UK’s first cloud hosted, modular multi-channel retail platforms, Cybertill developed a Gift Aid module in 2008 with longstanding customer British Red Cross, which was then launched as part of their charity software solution, helping charity shops claim an extra 25 per cent on donations.
Working with Brother UK, Cybertill has further developed its offering to streamline the often-laborious process of labelling donations and products for sale, and to enhance the way in which Gift Aid is captured with the new Electronic Donor Sign-up module, an add on to the CharityStore platform.
When a donor brings items into store, they can quickly and easily sign up to donate with Gift Aid by inputting their details into the Cybertill system on a tablet, with the data then stored securely on the cloud. The solution can now be integrated with the Brother TD-2120N desktop label printer, enabling charity shops to easily produce barcodes for each product’s label that contain its price, category and donor ID.
Digitising the labelling of products eradicates the potential for hand-written errors, ensuring charities can reclaim the tax on 100 per cent of eligible donations.
Elaine Scott, Business Development Manager, Cybertill said, “charity retail has changed beyond all recognition over the past decade. Many charities, including Sense, Cancer Research UK and Barnardo’s, have adopted high street retail best practice in the way they design, merchandise and manage their shops, which has seen widespread investment in charity retail systems that combine a cloud-based POS system with Gift Aid software.
“This partnership with Brother means we can save time for shop attendants and volunteers, while improving customer and donor engagement, and ultimately helping charities capture up to 100% of the Gift Aid they are entitled to.”
