The automated lettings payment platform PayProp has revealed that it comes from charitable roots.
PayProp is part of Humanstate, a private technology services group that also owns GivenGain; this is an online donation processing platform providing tools that enable companies, individuals and sports events to fundraise for charity.
“Our link with GivenGain is a strong theme for us,” says Neil Cobbold, PayProp UK’s chief operating officer.
“In fact, few people know that the first PayProp rental processing platform was based on GivenGain’s automated donation processing platform.”
Now PayProp has also revealed that throughout its 14-year history, it has remained true to its ethos of giving back.
The company provides ongoing commercial and operational support to the charitable work of the GivenGain Non-Profit Foundation, and its staff regularly engage in fundraisers for various charities – by fundraising individually or in regional office teams, or by donating or volunteering their expertise.
Like PayProp, GivenGain’s unique value proposition is in streamlining the online payment process with maximum efficiencies, speed of settlement, security, world-class support and powerful account management tools.
“In the same way that GivenGain removes obstacles for fundraisers, PayProp eradicates barriers between tenants, landlords and letting agents through bank integration, automation payments and communications and proactive arrears management” says Cobbold.
“We’re proud of our non-profit roots and firmly believe that fundraising and giving back should be an important element of every business. Many companies start life with a solely commercial focus before going on to give back in the future. However, non-profit activities have been important to us right from the very start.”
PayProp reminds property professionals - especially at this time of year, when many firms are giving to charity - that using global platforms like GivenGain to carry out fundraising campaigns can help them to raise even more money for good causes.
“We've seen many examples of agents and property professionals going above and beyond to raise money for important causes all year round, not just at Christmas” says Cobbold.
“Fundraising is hugely rewarding, good fun and can help a workforce to bond with each other and forge stronger connections with the community.”
