BiddingForGood Presents AIRS Automated Item Request System at Mass Innovation Nights
Cambridge, Mass., May 13, 2010 —BiddingForGood, the leading cause-related e-commerce platform connecting consumers and marketers to nonprofit auction events, had the pleasure of being one of the chosen companies to present at Mass Innovation Nights (MIN) at the Waltham IBM Innovation Center last night.
Showcasing their new product AIRS (Automated Item Request System), BiddingForGood was one of four companies chosen by online voters to showcase their companies at the event. The other Massachusetts-based innovators who were selected by a voting poll to speak were JitterJam, Boomerang and WebinarLisitings. AIRS revolutionizes the manual process that businesses undergo in trying to respond to the demands of local charities. AIRS speeds up and organizes the time consuming process of handling donation requests and offers comprehensive tracking. Business charity donations fuel the $16 billion charity auction market where items donors often receive little or no marketing exposure. AIRS enables businesses (donors) to have all requests submitted and administrated online at the fraction of the cost.
Held once per month and open to the public, the Mass Innovation Nights provides innovators and entrepreneurs the opportunity to connect with the main stream media, the marketplace and each other. "Mass Innovation Nights is a great place to feel the energy and excitement of upcoming entrepreneurs in the Boston market," says Aaron Rissler, AIRS Account Executive at BiddingForGood. The event allows companies to unveil new products to an audience of social media enthusiasts, mass and industry media, potential customers and prospective partners.
"BiddingForGood realizes how technology and innovation can catapult companies in these economic times," said Jon Carson, CEO of BiddingForGood CEO. Mr. Carson adds, "BiddingForGood offers AIRS to businesses for FREE to help better manage and ease the administration tasks of the donation process." AIRS has been implemented in businesses including hotels, restaurants and retails stores across the country with a strong customer base in Boston, MA.
