Because many of Leading Edge’s customers are school sports teams, competition has always been a big factor in their fundraisers. Students are put on teams and compete against each other for prizes. Tracking standings and progress throughout a fundraiser was tedious and slow when paper forms were the crux of the ordering process. But with the online portal, students can see their team’s performance in real time and bring the true spirit of competition into the fundraiser.
Leading Edge is by no means done with their portal. They have big plans for enhancements and new functionality. They’ve already experienced benefits from using the system, the most noticeable being a decrease in time needed and errors made now that orders aren’t being manually typed into a spreadsheet. Plus, since they’re no longer using printed forms, they’re saving on printing costs and are helping out the environment a bit.
