Vanco Services, LLC Announces New Donor-Managed Option for Organization Web Sites
MINNETONKA, Minn., May 27, 2009 — Vanco Services has released a new version of e.service(R) by Web, its widely-used online giving solution for churches and nonprofit organizations. The new version has an optional feature that allows donors to log in and self-manage all aspects of their donation activity. By placing more control into the hands of individual donors, organizations save valuable staff time and all parties benefit from greater security.
As a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Level 1 Compliant Service Provider, Vanco thoroughly understands the need for organizations processing donations to mitigate back office risks.
The new version allows churches and nonprofits to transfer the risk of handling and storing sensitive data to the secure online systems of Vanco Services. Banking and payment card information are always masked in reports viewed by the organization and a secure online authorization process can be used in place of paper authorization forms.
"To be effective fund raisers, churches and nonprofit organizations need to keep pace with donors who are accustomed to using a variety of electronic payment methods," said Jeanne Spencer Rose, CEO of Vanco Services. "This feature will appeal to the growing number of donors who prefer to make and manage a wide variety of payments online." Bill Learst, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, added, "We anticipate strong interest in this new feature -- especially among churches and nonprofits with a mandate to strengthen their procedures for handling and storing sensitive data. Our goal is to make it easy for current and new clients to implement the new donor log-in feature."
