Bob and Dave Chunilal of Nisyst and Tony Hilton of Charity Fleetcare and Gone for Good, have formed a partnership with the aim of bringing charity retail more in line with the services available from commercial retail. The partnership will allow development of a technology platform that focuses on donor experience by linking the Gone For Good app to the charities’ collection vehicles and ultimately into the charity shops, helping reduce costs and increase revenues for charity retailers.
Gone for Good, an app aimed to make giving to charity shops easier, has received more than 50,000 downloads since its launch in 2014. It also enables the efficient pick-up of a donation by the charity chosen on the app. The Charity Fleetcare software aims to reduce fuel costs, lower emissions, enhance driver safety and improve efficiencies.
Dave Chunilal, Technical Director of Nisyst, commented: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Charity Fleetcare to deliver an end to end solution for charity retailers which will help streamline their operational processes when it comes to receiving donations remotely. It will also ensure that they do not lose out on valuable Gift Aid. This will be available on every single item donated, whether it is a piece of clothing or a large item of furniture and will make a huge difference to the amount of funding charities are able to receive.”
Tony Hilton, founder and CEO of Charity Fleetcare and Gone for Good, added: “This new partnership is an exciting and much needed development. We hope to bring the sector up to the same standard of service experienced in commercial retail. For charities, it will make the donor journey more efficient and environmentally friendly and ensure that income is maximised whilst costs are reduced.”
