1st July 2013: Interact –  leading intelligent intranet software company, today announced the launch of its global competition, open to charities to win a free charity portal intranet software package worth £40,000/$60,000.

The competition called, Interact 7, Pick Me! runs until July 31 and is open to all registered charities world-wide. The winning organisation will be awarded with the latest version of Interact Intranet – Interact 7 as well as a complete support package.

This is the second consecutive year for the competition – 2012 winners were U.S based premature baby charity, March of Dimes and North Devon Hospice who are based in the UK and support individuals and families who are faced with the impact of a life-limiting illness.

To enter, charities need to submit seven reasons they think their organisation needs a new intranet before July 31st.

Entries can be submitted via video, PowerPoint, Prezi or a Word document. The winning entry will be selected by a board of judges including external influencers and thought leaders as well as Interact senior leadership.

Nigel Danson, CEO of Interact comments, “I’m really excited that we are launching this competition for the second year running that celebrates the invaluable work of charities world-wide. It’s brilliant to see how last year’s winners, March of Dimes and North Devon Hospice continue to see massive improvements to the way they work.

“Securing funding is harder than ever, so not only will winning this competition ensure the organisation saves on the costs of installing the software but a successful and well-built charity intranet will continually help to save money by improving governance, accountability, efficiency and effectiveness in a unique industry made up of head office workers and a scattered workforce of volunteers, trustees and remote workers.”

  • Dedicated Project Manager
  • Blogging Tool
  • Custom Theme
  • Event Calendar
