With Kudos, your organisation can become first choice for furniture donations.
Donors can book appointments 24/7, directly into the calendar, and sign up for retail gift aid at the same time.
If you collect from Local Authorities, they can have access to your calendar too. And the team that take the calls in-store (or in an office) all have access to the same calendar – no duplicates, no errors, any number of shops and vehicles, anytime of the day or night.
Manage your vehicles efficiently with our collection and delivery tool.
Access the software online or instore to use postcode-based planning and set up SMS appointment and Gift Aid signup reminders. Using Kudos means making fuel savings, more appointments per shift and maximised Retail Gift Aid.
Kudos acknowledges and recognises that managing furniture reuse involves more than meets the eye, which is why we’ve developed a solution specifically designed with reuse in mind.
With Kudos you can:
- Add standard weights to your stock categories to understand how much your organisation is saving from landfill and make sure you’re not overloading your vehicles.
- Account for solidarity vouchers, record PAT tests and warranties, add labour and part costs for repairs.
And what’s more, Kudos helps you do it all electronically and effectively, saving you time and effort.
A delivery service is all part of our reuse solution.
Kudos will prompt your team to offer delivery at the point of sale and then the available slots appear based on the customers’ post code. You can take a delivery charge and send an SMS reminder of the appointment. It’s simply professional retailing for reuse.
