Fast Transact, Inc. and StarSoft Technologies Team Up to Manage Donation and Fundraiser Transactions

July 15, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Non-profits can now offer a convenient option when it comes to accepting online and traditional mail-in donations, easily manage tracking and accounting reports, and automate various types of emails and donation notification information. Package options can be tailored for organizations of different sizes and budget limitations to include merchant account fulfillment, payment processing gateway, shopping cart system, automated recurring transactions, and more.

“We believe that a key ingredient to success is partnering with organizations that have complementary strengths,” said David Solomon, CEO of Fast Transact, Inc. “The partnership offers a fully integrated, user-friendly solution for payment acceptance and donor management. By combining our expertise and technology, FAST TRANSACT® and StarSoft provide a way for non-profits to immediately accept all major forms of payment and simplify their fundraising efforts. We bring together customized services for organizations without the challenges of developing this capability themselves.”

"Our DonorWorks™ clients will be able to further streamline their workflow using FAST TRANSACT to process their credit card and EFT gifts. Full integration means that staff and volunteers will be able to enter gifts more efficiently. We have always done all we can to free our non-profit clients to do what they do best. After all, their business isn't business, it’s people," said Scotte Meredith, President and CEO of StarSoft Technologies.

"Integration with FAST TRANSACT lets our users enter credit card and donor information one time only … in DonorWorks. From there, DonorWorks talks to the FAST TRANSACT servers to complete the process. This cuts down on data entry and reduces the possibility of errors in the process. It also allows our clients to process monthly and recurring gifts with no additional effort from their donors. We expect this to increase revenue, giving our clients the resources to extend their mission," Kristi Murray, Operations Director for StarSoft, added.

“When it comes to accepting donations, FAST TRANSACT’s Sustaining Donor Solutions (SDS) program helps organizations to reach out further than just their neighborhood community,” stated Solomon. They can accept payments without worrying about whether or not checks will clear, and constituents have the convenience of using their credit or debit card if they would like. We provide a processing system that exceeds the security requirements set forth by Visa and MasterCard so both non-profits and their donors can be assured that all transaction data is safe and secure.”
