Gesture is a nonprofit management solution suitable for charities and organizations of all types and sizes. Key features include mobile bidding, guest management, registration management, donation management and reporting.
Gesture is mobile-responsive and enables guests to bid in auctions from their smart phones. Donors can even bid remotely. The solution is able to process credit card payments through mobile devices.
The solution is able to manage pre-registration as well as automated registration. When a donor registers, Gesture automatically sends a welcome message and gives them the ability to begin bidding, buying and making donations. Users can also monitor ticket sales for events and attendee activity.

Aside from the comprehensive report, everything else with gestures was fairly simple and easy to use. The staff from gestures that helped during the event was knowledgeable and able to help and respond quickly and effectively during the event went on which made it less chaotic feeling for us.
I love that gesture was easy for our guests to use at our gala. We used it for check in and the process was simple and easy to understand for our volunteers at registration to find info. We used it for our silent auction and guests were able to see the items from their phones and bid very easily and they received notices when they were outbid or when they won. We used it for general donations, selling centerpieces, and checkout. Overall pretty easy to use during the event.
During the check in process we were unable to search by table number which would have been helpful because sometimes we are asked who is sitting at a certain table and it would be nice to look up by table. Also after the event we needed specific reports to be able to input all of the money we received and record all of the info and gestures did not yet have one comprehensive report to give us what we needed, instead I had to modify and combine several reports to make it work for our needs.

Ease of registration, implementation, overall ease for our guests and check out was super easy!
The ease of loading images and descriptions. Customer support and training was excellent as was on-site, day of support.
Character limitations on certain fields. It would have been helpful to have a comment about the fact that no decimal points should be used when entering dollar amounts in FMV, opening bid, etc.
