Announced at a gala dinner at Keele University’s Keele Hall this week (Monday 29 June) as part of the Charity Retail Conference, the Charity Retail Awards are the only in the industry that specifically highlight the work of those involved in the charity retail sector.
We fought off strong competition from a wide variety of suppliers to the charity retail sector, winning the award thanks to our ability to respond quickly to clients and adapt our CHARiot EPoS software to meet their needs.
We have supplied our innovative CHARiot EPoS system to The Children’s Society for five years and worked closely with the charity to develop new functionality for the system. Recent innovations include CHARiot’s Full Scan Mode (FSM), which enables automatic collection of Gift Aid to ensure no revenue is overlooked during a transaction.
We have also responded to The Children’s Society’s request for an EPoS solution to the issue of collecting Gift Aid on Rag (GAoR), leading to a current trial of CHARiot’s GAoR software.
Paul Tate, new business manager at The Children’s Society said: “We’re delighted to congratulate them on a very well-deserved win.”
Awarded by the Charity Retail Association, which represents 80% of the charity retail sector with more than 370 members operating across 8,000 shops, the accolades recognise charities, volunteers and the charity retail supply chain.
Martin Blackwell, chief executive of the Charity Retail Association, also added: “Many of our charity members voted for Nisyst because of their great work. The Charity Retail Association is very grateful for the support that Nisyst has given to the sector over the years.”
