Advanced Gift Aid is changing the way charity retailers manage their shops and charity retail divisions. Advanced Gift Aid delivers unparalleled control to charity retailers as they are able to speed up the gift aid process and manage their donated stock more effectively.
Brings best practice to Charity retail by introducing a single bar code, which is scanned at point of sale, this then automates the gift aid and records the sale.
Gift Aid eradicated all missed gift aid sales. All other charity gift aid software systems have multiple labels and tags, there is one for price and one for gift aid. The separate gift aid tab also need recording (often manually with other gift aid systems). If it is not properly recorded then the gift aid cannot be claimed. Advanced Gift completely eradicates this with a single bar code, and once scanned this begins the automation stage of reclaiming gift aid.
The Advanced Gift Aid Barcode means that mis-keyed transactions at the point of sale are a thing of the past. The staff simply scan the barcode and this automatically brings the price up on the Cybertill system, so all products are sold for the correct price.
Advanced Gift Aid eliminates ticket swapping, as every item is bar coded it is readily identifiable as to what item it should be and its price. This helps further reduce a charity’s level of lost revenue.
Transaction times at the point of sale are speeded up as staff are simply scanning barcodes at point of sale.
As no gift aid sales are missed and tickets cannot be swapped on goods Advanced Gift Aid generates more money for charity retailers.
As all goods are bar coded (even items that do not have consent for gift aid) and allocated to specific departments and categories. This allows charity retailers to introduce stock control on donated goods. This in turn means charities can monitor which shops sell which lines particularly well and allocate the right type of stock to the right stores, optimising sales and sell through times.
Unlike other companies that supply gift aid systems for charity retailers, Cybertill doesn’t take a cut of the gift aid that a charity raises. So 100% of the gift aid raised goes to the charity.
Advanced Gift Aid like all Cybertill’s retail software is cloud based. So charities do not have to invest in expensive back office servers. Nor do they need to load often stretched IT resources with further responsibilities, as Cybertill manage ongoing data back ups and provide free bi-monthly software upgrades.
Advanced Gift Aid integrates with Cybertill’s Charity EPoS system making it a complete charity retail system.
Other Gift Aid Options
Almost one in three charity shops in the UK are signed up to Cybertill’s Charity Retail System (Link to charity sector page). Many of Cybertill’s charity customers have progressed from using manual gift aid systems to Cybertill’s retail system that integrates the gift aid systems and the retail EPoS system. This makes it easier to manage and grow the retail division of the charity.
