MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- People seldom carry large amounts of cash, or their checkbooks, to church. That's why ServiceU (http://www.ServiceU.com) has developed giving kiosk software to enable churches to lock down any existing PC in order to create a custom giving kiosk. With the launch of TransactU kiosk features, an addition to the popular TransactU™ online donation and event registration software for churches, any organization can easily turn any Windows PC into a giving kiosk without purchasing expensive hardware.
Churches can easily provide their members and guests with a secure and convenient way to use their debit or credit cards to make donations or register for events onsite through these new donation kiosk software features.
"Because people rarely carry cash or checkbooks when they attend church services, churches are eager to look at different ways to encourage faithful tithing and giving," says Tim Whitehorn, Founder and CEO of ServiceU. "The TransactU kiosk features provide church members and guests with an easy way to give onsite, while giving is on their minds, with just a swipe of their debit or credit card."
To turn any Windows PC (Vista or 7) into a kiosk, ServiceU recommends that churches position the computer screen so that it faces a wall or private area. This way, givers still have privacy while making their gift.
"Because ServiceU is a software development company, we focused on developing the best software to allow church members and guests to give onsite with their debit or credit cards," says Whitehorn. "This way, a kiosk enclosure is not required. Churches can purchase a commercial kiosk that fits their budget or simply turn any Windows PC into a secure giving kiosk."
In addition to being in compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS) as a Level 1 Service Provider, ServiceU has also installed numerous security features to ensure the security of the financial data. Because givers will be swiping their credit cards, there are no numbers to be entered, making the locked down PC impenetrable to keystroke logging software to which other programs fall prey.
The kiosk features of TransactU also allow for church members and guests to register and pay for events with their debit or credit cards.
