Tradewinds was developed to be user friendly as well as a powerful tool for managing current and future events. Tradewinds keep track of all past and current guests that have attend your events and allows your organization the ability to create a guest list for your current and future events. Tradewinds also creates a comprehensive list of all donated goods and services that donor have contributed for the success of your organization. We call this inventory system an "Atomic" inventory control system. Our "Atomic" inventory system allows you to assign items to your current event or event an event you may be hosting in the future. Items can be assigned to be a "Live Auction Item", "Silent Auction Item", or a "Basket Item". Basket items can be consolidated into a basket and sold as a silent auction item. If an item does not sell at your event, it can be put back into inventory and used at a future date.
Tradewinds also contains a very powerful tool for managing your guests and determining who is related to whom and who want to sit with whom.
Entering winning bids into Tradewinds is a breeze, items can be entered in singularly or a single item can have multiple winners assigned with a few quick key strokes.
Tradewinds guest management logic gives you the tools to easily manage your guests with a payment history and the ability to store multiple for a "split pay" senerio.
Everyone knows one of the key factors in hosting a successful fundraising event is the ability to get your guests in the event quickly and efficiently and at the end of the event, get your guests out the door with out standing in long check out lines. That is why we have developed the "Grab N Go" check In and check our logic in Tradewinds. When a guest arrives at the event, they can quickly store a credit card and enter the event. Since the guest has a "card on file", when it comes to check out time al they need to do is grab their goods they have won or purchased and head out the door!
Just a note.... guest credit card information is NEVER stored in Tradewinds! All guest credit card information it Tokenized and purged. Tradewinds is absolutely PCI compliant!
