MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- No matter what type of organization, providing a way for people to do business via their mobile phones is critical. According to the Pew Research Center, six in ten adults - 59% of all adult Americans - now access the Internet wirelessly. This research demonstrates that more adults of all ages are wirelessly accessing the Internet than ever before, and much of that online activity includes financial transactions.
ServiceU (http://www.serviceu.com), one of the leading providers of online giving, payment, and registration software services to the nonprofit and church market, has now added free mobile functionality that enables people to give, register, and pay for events securely from their cell phones. Best of all, these mobile devices are supported automatically through the company's solution - the organization does not need to do anything or pay anything extra for mobile pages, unlike many mobile church apps on the market.
"With the ability to pay your mortgage, your electric bill, and even make money transfers on your mobile phone, adding the ability to make a charitable donation to the list is a logical addition," notes Tim Whitehorn, President and CEO of ServiceU. "We are excited to be leading the way for churches and nonprofits to connect with their communities wirelessly."
TransactU donation and registration forms and web pages have been redesigned and are now completely compatible with mobile viewing. Secure giving web pages are now optimized to fit on small screens, with fewer clicks necessary to make online donations. Even if an organization's webpage is not yet mobile friendly, when using TransactU, donors will be able to easily and clearly navigate to the online donation page where they can safely and securely give online.
Mobile giving functionality will dramatically enhance the user experience when a church member or visitor navigates to your website on their cell phones. By making the donations page easier to view and access on a mobile device, churches and non-profits can embrace the new mobile lifestyle of their congregations and communities.
From the secure donations page, visitors are able to make a onetime payment, schedule a future or recurring payment, or opt to receive a reminder to make a future payment themselves at a later date. All this can be done via the optimized mobile donations page for giving on the go. As always, this feature is supported by the security of a PCI-certified compliant payment environment, meaning that your donors' financial data is safe and secure, even as they make their charitable donation from their mobile phones.
