MicroEdge Delivers Major Advancement to Employee Giving Platform

New York, NY, Sept. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroEdge, LLC, the leading provider of solutions to the giving community worldwide, today announced a major update to AngelPoints Giving. This new version delivers significant improvements that make it easier for corporations to manage multiple giving programs, add greater flexibility to support the different ways that employees give, and enable better tracking and reporting of a corporation's efforts.

AngelPoints Giving is part of the AngelPoints suite of integrated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) solutions that currently helps some of the world's largest and most respected companies engage their employees to make a positive impact in their company and in the communities they serve. AngelPoints Giving offers a full spectrum of employee giving programs, including payroll campaigns, matching gifts, and disaster relief solutions. It also delivers an engaging user experience on an intuitive, easy-to-manage platform that is backed by secure administration of the donation process.

This latest release helps corporations increase participation in employee giving programs by making it easier for staff to make charitable donations in a variety of different ways. For example, many employees give to charities on their own, outside of established company-run employee giving programs. This kind of "offline giving" takes place when an employee gives directly to a charity via a personal check or cash. But these donations are not always accounted for in the company's overarching employee giving efforts. AngelPoints Giving now makes it simple for employees to incorporate all of their charitable donations--including those made offline--into the company's employee giving programs, helping to strengthen the overall story of the company's giving.

AngelPoints Giving also delivers the ability to run multiple programs simultaneously, including credit card giving, matching gifts programs, payroll campaigns, and disaster relief efforts. Plus, companies now have the ability to establish different matching donation rates for each individual program--as well as varying rates for individuals within each program based on employee information such as tenure, seniority, etc.--helping them run more dynamic programs and making it easier to track the results of each program individually. All of these enhancements add up to a system that enables corporations to increase participation across the board, maintain a better, more comprehensive understanding of all employee giving activities in the company, and more accurately report on them to the communities they support.

"Employee giving is an incredibly powerful way for companies to engage their employees, increase workplace morale, and give back to their communities," says MicroEdge CEO, Preston McKenzie. "With AngelPoints Giving, we're helping corporations get more employees involved in the effort, while making it easy for them to administer their programs and focus more time on strategies for strengthening their programs over the long term."
