Professional Jeweller Award’s sponsor, Cybertill, has introduced a new ’round-up’ feature to its retail software, which is predicted to raise over £1m for charity this year.
The Round Up feature, which is exclusive for users of Cybertill’s cloud-based retail and Gift Aid software, enables retailers, charity stores and visitor attractions to give customers the choice to round up the value of their purchase to the nearest pound with a tap of a button, and donate the extra money to charity.
For retailers, Round Up is an opportunity for companies to align with charitable causes and encourage loyalty and footfall to store. Retailers can opt to choose a local charity, national or a mixture of the two across their retail estate.
Cybertill predicts that this feature will raise in excess of £1 million for charity over the next 12 months.
Chief executive at Cybertill, Ian Tomlinson, says: “Never has retail and charity been so perfectly aligned to support one another on the high street. With the modern consumer’s pound being spent more and more with retailers with a purpose beyond profit, we wanted to give retailers an easy way to increase charitable giving. We’re proud to offer the software that can enable this.”
Cybertill is committed to helping retailers make small changes that can make a big difference and is proud to provide software to help charities spend less on IT and raise more for their causes.
