At Surf Your Name, we pride ourselves in providing the simple solution first! Many of our clients come to us looking for a website or service that will do EXACTLY what they need in order for their business or organization to function correctly – and our team of web developers, graphic designers, and marketing specialists have the knowledge and experience to provide them with just that. So when Central Coast National Philanthropy Day organizers contacted us, looking for an event ticketing system that met all of their needs we were happy to help!
National Philanthropy Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of giving and all that it has made possible. Each year, more than 100 Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) chapters host NPD events and activities across North America to celebrate the endless daily contributions individuals and organizations across the world make to countless causes and missions.
Central Coast NPD hosts an annual dinner where awards are presented to individuals, corporations, service organizations, youth, and young adults who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the community as a whole, through direct financial support, development of charitable programs, innovative program development, volunteerism, and outstanding leadership in the field of philanthropy, from Monterey and Santa Cruz counties.
The organizers had been using a ticketing system that had a good foundation, but it lacked any of the premium features they were looking for. And the features it did have were vastly oversimplified and difficult to use or customize. The main point of contingency was their waitlist system. They needed something that would keep track of their waitlist and allow them to offer tickets privately to individual people on the list, as they became available. Most ticketing systems require that you change the number of tickets available for the event, and from there it’s “first come first serve”. Our team did the research and discovered a simple solution to their problem that offered them every feature and function they were looking for.
We installed an existing ticketing system, set it up on their website to their specifications and our development team programmed the system to add advanced functions that were needed by the client. We also made various styling customizations using custom CSS. The event organizers were ecstatic when we showed them the completed project! It was exactly what they were looking for, and it will make this year’s event seamless and intuitive in ways that past events have not been!
