People’s Choice Award: AlligatortekWinner in: 2014
alligatortek developed a custom web portal to allow donors to submit offers and review their offer history on any device. The portal allows the non-profit organization’s staff to review offers and quickly decide which offers to forward on for bids. Real-time reporting provides immediate feedback on donation targets for the week, month and year. Importing into the bidding system is done with a click of a button. A process that could take potentially a week has been reduced to minutes. By reducing the amount of time from donation to bidding, this non-profit is able to take better advantage of highly perishable fresh produce donations. Three parties directly benefit from this innovation: the donors have an easier time submitting offers; Feeding America reduces the amount of time it takes to process offers, and reduces errors; and the recipients of the produce receive fresher produce faster.
