In business since 1985, NWSoftware's staff has extensive experience in computer technology and business application development. Our firm develops and provides the pioneering and premiere suite of event fundraising management software applications to the the nonprofit and educational vertical markets in the U.S., Australia and Canada.
A History of Excellence!
In 1985, NWSoftware began offering its products and services as a "Value Added Reseller" to the legal and financial markets. Projects were planned and implemented using proven industry standard methodologies, thus providing our clients with practical, easy to use systems and applications in a minimum amount of time.
NWSoftware began development of what was to become the flagship product in 1987/1988 of what is known today as the "Tracker-Series". Originally designed for a local Camp Fire Council's Fun Run benefit fundraiser, "Event-Tracker" became an excellent seller and introductory product for many charities around the United States holding sponsor-based pledge events.
Since 1992, NWSoftware has been the pioneering and leading developer of Event Fundraising Software to the nonprofit and educational vertical market sectors. On an International level, our applications have helped to raise nearly $4 Billion dollars for children's charities, private education, hospital care, the arts and more!
In 2010 NWSoftware celebrated its silver anniversary and we continued our mission of enhancing software technology to increase productivity and revenue levels of the event fundraiser. For example, our "One Source" data management design eliminated multiple data sources for event fundraising management; Integration of electronic hand-held bidding technology from IML gave our user community the next generation in silent auction bidding that enhanced the patron's focus on giving while substantially reducing, and in many cases eliminating, multiple volunteer data entry tasks; Integrated online auction event management eliminated the need to manage goods and services procured from multiple data sources while providing absolute integration to the virtual (online) benefit auction. The resulting solution provides a level of comprehensive, long-term data management analysis and federal tax reporting compliance not provided by other online auction sites to their users.
In 2015, we celebrate a milestone that few software publishers in the computer industry achieve; 30 years in business. How does our application suite differentiate itself from the market? Its starts with listening to the end-user and responding to their needs. Today's event fundraisers are far more competitive than they were 20 years ago. With more nonprofits competing for the same procurement dollar it takes smart, long-term data management and planning to be consistently successful. Our applications have proven themselves time and again to help our end-user community be successful today, while placing them in the position to turn event participants into long-term contributors of the nonprofit. Hence the art of exponential event fundraising!
