Singlepoint (www.singlepoint.com) has officially secured rights to sell the powerful Text2Bid™ Mobile Auction Platform to ISOs (Independent Sales Organizations) and individual clientele, while providing Text2Bid™ with a streamlined text messaging platform and credit card gateway for its users.
Utilizing software from Maestro (www.maestrosoft.com), the premier provider of comprehensive event management software for non-profit organizations, Text2Bid™ makes it easy for groups of all sizes to raise money through mobile auctions. Maestro’s current client base includes American Cancer Society, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, The Ronald McDonald House and the US Olympic Committee to name a few.

As well, Singlepoint now has an additional revenue stream as a seller of Text2Bid’s powerful mobile auction platform.”
Ken Kleve, President and COO of Maestro, located in Bellevue, WA stated “It’s always been a focus of Maestro to include the best available technology within our products and services used by clients located around the world. Partnering with SinglePoint adds an additional best-of-breed technology to our offerings. The combination of Maestro’s industry leading fundraising expertise and SinglePoint’s advanced understanding of mobile technology bring to the charity fundraising market a superior level of mobile bidding technology at the lowest possible price.”
Eric Lofdahl of Text2Bid™ agrees, “SinglePoint’s technology is the perfect addition to our industry leading Text2Bid™ and MobileMaestro products.

Text2Bid’s events have proven to increase funds raised by an average of 30% over traditional auctions.
