GiveSmart appoint independent staffing agency Kru Live as their sole partner in a three year agreement. GiveSmart is a full service fundraising solution for electronic bidding, donating and voting at fundraising events, balls, gala dinners and auctions.
This collaboration marks the beginning of a promising alliance between two organisations who share in similar values and standards. Both Kru Live and GiveSmart are committed to delivering a best in class service and purposeful experience for their guests.
Ted Robinson, Director at GiveSmart said, “We managed things in house successfully for a number of years but our success has meant that it was time to handover to specialists known for fantastic service. After a detailed selection process and trial period we felt that Kru Live and their very high standards were the best fit for our brand and our clients”.
Sarah-Jane Benham, Managing Director at Kru Live comments “Early conversations highlighted a clear synergy between our two companies; both ambitious in our outlook, passionate about looking after our people and committed to delivering a service of excellence; we are confident our partnership will only strengthen each other’s business further. As GiveSmart continue to win the market share of online fundraising at events, our agreement will see Kru Live delivering a very significant number of staffing days as well as the provision of bespoke entertainment and celebrity auctioneers through Kru Talent”
Kelly Armstrong, GiveSmart’s appointed Kru Live Account Manager said, “We first came to work with GiveSmart after one of our frequently placed Ambassador’s recommended us; this is the most flattering of recommendations we could wish for and are thrilled to have developed things into a long term partnership”.
