Foodbank’s IT given a boost by Island technology company
Innovative technology company Wight Computers have been proud supporters of the Island’s Foodbank since 2013 when they created some bespoke software for them to help organise their volunteers.
The latest improvement to the charity’s IT system has been created and installed for free to support the Foodbank in running their ‘holiday voucher scheme’.
This separately run scheme supports those families who experience additional pressure during holiday times as they are usually able to rely on school meals to help feed their children.
A massive thank you to Andrew and his team for creating this database for us. We are so grateful for the time and expertise spent on making our lives easier.
We were using a very basic spreadsheet before, but we are finding this new system incredibly efficient with inputting our information.
It is intuitive in remembering details and we now have the ability to generate reports on certain data which helps us to plan for upcoming trends and submit reports to our Trustees.
Hannah Jones, Isle of Wight Foodbank
As an Island based company, we are delighted to support local charities such as the Foodbank who provide such an incredible service to the community.
It’s part of our day-to-day work to create bespoke software solutions for businesses but to be able to add value to the Foodbank is extra special and means that their precious resources are not wasted.
We were more than happy to donate our time and expertise to help develop their systems which in turn helps to enhance the lives of others.
