The challenge

Christian Aid was already outsourcing their donation processing and response handling when their existing contract was drawing to the end of its term, Christian Aid embarked on a tender process for a new provider.  DDC OS’s experience within the Charity sector led to a successful win of the bid for providing financial and non-financial response handling and donation processing.

The solution developed enables efficient and cost-effective management of a range of campaigns and incorporates every aspect of response handling; receipt and sort, scanning, data capture, banking and thanking and image hosting with dynamic reporting. An extension to the service offering for donation handling is the provision of an inbound call line which provides real-time credit card donation processing.
