DIY Solutions | Auction Fundraising Software

We provide the auction fundraising software, training & support. You manage the event with your staff/volunteers.

Auction & Event technology for less

Our “Do It Yourself” mobile bidding platform package is perfect for clients that don’t require AES staffed registration or checkout services. Get full access to our auction fundraising software and product suite, and either use your own equipment or rent ours for an additional fee.

The package includes a dedicated AES Event Manager to guide you through the process, train your event staff/volunteers, and provide fundraising event best practices. They’ll be on-call and guaranteed to be available for tech support on event day. We have decades of experience with nonprofit fundraising tools, and your success is our success!

You’ll enjoy the benefits of our full nonprofit event software suite and fundraising tools, including Auction Conductor, Event Conductor and Event Manager. The AES platform allows you to track and inventory auction donations, manage RSVPs with drag & drop table seating, utilize paper or mobile bidding, send SMS text alerts, show big screen leaderboards, process outstanding payments, produce comprehensive reports, and more!

All DIY service packages include:

Optional Equipment

While some organizations may have everything they need to run a successful event in-house, others may need some help. For that reason, we can include configured laptops, printers, and tablets complete with the latest system updates, virus & threat protection and PCI compliant configurations.

If you want plug-and-play reliability for the most critical parts of your event, look no further. We can help!
