Berkeley Castle have been with Tengo Software since 2015, using their visitor attraction EPoS and on-line ticketting platform TripGiving.UK. They have boosted ticket sales by using the system to sell tickets to their amazing charitable visitor attraction both on-line and in person on-site, as well as handling donations.
Jackie Pennington, Operations Manager at Berkeley, had the following to say about the service:
“TripGiving has been a great addition to our website, the system works seamlessly with our tills and enables our visitors to purchase their admission tickets in advance of their visit. This benefits us in many ways; it speeds up the admission process, enables UK tax payers to gift aid their ticket whilst making their on-line purchase and also gives us an indication of anticipated visitor numbers for upcoming events. We also take our online donations through the system, as it is cheaper than other options. I would recommend this facility to other attractions!”

“We had a charity shop at one of our hospitals for 25 years that used the very basic system of writing each item sold into a book and working out the totals and change in your head. This shop was run solely by volunteers and was doing very well but the system left people open to making mistakes and there was no gift aid being claimed in the shop. In 2017 we recruited a charity shop manager, rebranded the shop we had, opened a second shop and decided to implement retail gift aid into both shops.

It was announced on the 31st October by the ICO which provides clarity on the direction the UK is taking when it comes to the new data protection regulations. The Information Commissioner announced what many of us have been suspecting, that the UK is effecting the new GDPR regulations in May 2018 as originally planned.
Age UK first installed tengoPOS and tengoCloud charity Gift Aid EPoS and Back Office systems from Tengo Software in 2006. Since then sites all over the country have benefitted from the system that allows the organisation to claim Gift Aid on the sale of items that are donated to them.
The system is really simple to use, the donor simply gives their name and post code, and the items are tagged or labelled with a unique scan-able reference. When the item is sold, Age UK are able to claim Gift Aid on the donation with the original donor’s details. The system is integrated with HMRC so that Gift Aid claims can be made simply and quickly on line.
Tengo Software first installed tengoPOS at National Trust property Bodnant Garden in February 2009. The visitor attraction quickly saw benefits, clocking an increase of 34% on completed Gift Aid declarations. Following successful installation at Bodnant, a host of other National Trust properties also had the software and hardware installed, bringing not just a massive boost in Gift Aid revenue, but also significant cost-savings from reduced admin and paperwork.
Here are a selection of comments from people within the National Trust that were involved in the project:
