IDENTEX SUPPORTS THE BLUE CROSS ANIMAL WELFARE CHARITY Monday 18 February 2002 PDF Print Donation Management Enables Charity to Refocus Resources towards Fundraising Identex, a specialist in customer management and marketing automation solutions, today announced that The Blue Cross, the animal welfare charity, has selected Identex to support its donor fundraising marketing campaigns through the implementation of a donation management solution. Through the outsourcing of donation management The Blue Cross are able to redistribute valuable and often limited in-house resources to be focused on driving proactive fundraising activities across the UK. The Blue Cross is one of Britain’s oldest animal welfare organisations, providing advice, practical care and veterinary treatment for thousands of companion animals every year. It has 11 adoption centres and four hospitals located around Britain from North Yorkshire to Torbay South Devon. Recognising that its in-house resources were becoming stretched to capacity by the processing of inbound responses to donor campaigns, Identex was recommended to deliver a flexible donation management service to process the inbound responses, payments and thanking of donors. Direct Marketing Officer at The Blue Cross, Helen Murray comments, “The Blue Cross relies solely on donations from members of the public, charitable trusts and companies. It is vitally important that we have a reliable campaign management system from initial mailing to payment and thanking. By working with Identex to manage the inbound campaign responses from our donors we are able to focus extra time and resources on essential fundraising activities.” Client Relationship Director at Identex, Geoff Downer comments, “We are able to offer charities such as The Blue Cross a complete solution for campaign management. As well as managing postal responses Identex is also able to manage emails, website responses and telephone call handling. Through our work with many UK charitable organisations Identex has been fully audited for security, safety, quality and staffing and has successfully passed every audit. We are also fully versed in the new ‘gift aid processing’.” About Identex Identex is a specialist in the customer management and marketing automation market.
