The Problem

The most common goals of a human being are to live a stable, peaceful and secure life. But not everyone has these. Landing a hand is within every person possibilities, but not everyone knows actually how to do this or from what to start. So, we provide the solution.

The Solution

BID4GOOD solution is what you need. B4G is a tool implemented on Salesforce® platform for organizing auctions for non-profit goals. The main idea of the application is to involve employees in charity, to build brand awareness and to give a chance to help people, animals and the environment. Enterprise, small business, schools, non-profit organizations or anyone who is interested in making the world a better place can use the application.

How does it work

The first step is to find a person that needs help and create his story in the application. Now it’s up to your employees: they can create lots and make bids in the application of the organization or community. Lots may be basically anything, for instance, hugs, pictures, books, handmade sweets and so on. After the online auction, the goods are exchanged for money, all gathered funds are collected and transferred to the person in need.

Visualforce solution

We provide two solutions based on your preferences and budget. Firstly, we provide a simplified solution based on Visualforce that can be used and adjusted to your preferences almost right away. Here is an example:

We improved product functionality to make it easier to navigate, monitor and review history on all created lots and bids.

List of adjustments:

  • You can monitor current gathered funds;
  • Navigate and sort across all available lots;
  • Review lots statuses, which keep your expectations up to date.

We also improved the ability to customize the lots:

  1. Min bid is a step for all bid following initial;
  2. Initial bid is a minimum requirement to start bids on your lot;
  3. You can set your username visible/invisible to users based on preferences.

My profile

“My profile” is done in order to help to operate through the bids and lots and make your profile unique.

You can change your profile logo, name, see your contribution. Switch on “Email notification”- this feature will notify you when your bid is outbid by someone.
