Door to Door Module


Door-to-Door module

Ideal Fundraising created a revolutionary Door to Door module to form part of the Ideal Fundraising solution. Our door-to-door module allows you to create door sets quickly and easily from the portal. Simply click on the street and add it to your ‘basket’. Routes can then be planned and allocated instantly to the fundraisers, so they can access them on their tablets, and plan their day. They can even see where they are in relation to the streets they have been allocated, view car parks, toilets and more! All door outcomes are recorded on the tablets in real time so teams can work on the same street and view other’s outcomes as they happen. The outcomes can then be analysed on the portal, so you can determine door-to-door ‘hotspots’, making door-to-door fundraising easier, more efficient and more profitable.

Why use the Door-to-Door module

Efficiency – easily ignore “bad doors“ and save valuable time. Don’t waste time knocking doors marked as ‘No cold calling’, and spend more time returning to doors that were marked as wanting them to ‘come back later!’

Profitability – allows managers to understand activity on doors; more time to prioritise ‘open’ doors, therefore increased chance of successful signups.

Simplicity – makes the administration for door knocking much simpler for both portal and tablet users.


Simple to configure

Create door sets – use our sophisticated map system to quickly and easily add doors to you door set.

Assign door sets to your fundraisers – provide your fundraisers with designated routes.

Create and assign blacklists  – no more wasted time on ‘closed’ doors.

Create as many ‘door outcomes’ as you like – they could include, nobody home, vulnerability concern, come back later or anything you feel is relevant for your team!

Easily set up cool down periods –  keep your fundraisers knocking on ‘open doors’!

Analyse your door sets – keep an eye on how your door sets are progressing as data comes in.

Save time and effort, increase productivity and gain donations for your cause!

Record door outcomes

Record everything that happens at the door to allow your fundraisers to keep knocking ‘open doors’ and make the most of their time.

The fundraiser will select an outcome on their tablet depending on what happens at the door.

Whether its ‘come back later’, ‘nobody at home’ or ‘vulnerability concern’, your fundraisers can record it. A door will show as being available to knock again depending on the cool-down times you’ve set on the portal. So if no one is home, your fundraiser can try back in 30 minutes perhaps. It’s up to you.

With door 2 door, your fundraisers can prioritise addresses, plan their routes and make the most of their time fundraising.


Plan the most efficient route

When your fundraisers download their door set, they can see where they are in relation to the addresses and can therefore plan their route in the most efficient way.

They can even see where the nearest car park and toilets are!

What Our Clients
Say About Us

We have used IFS to support our regular giving and lottery campaigns for around 8 years now.  The actual software itself is super easy to use, quick to complete and is built with fundraisers in mind. With the portal, the standardisation across it, makes the system really easy to use. KPI’s are at the forefront and visible within seconds. It’s very accessible for our field managements throughout every day, which is something we really like about it.

IT and Venues Director,

We assessed many solutions when looking for a partner to provide our digital data collection/canvassing solution. The Ideal Fundraising solution stood out for many reasons, their experience within the sector, their knowledge of what works and what doesn’t within field-based communications, and the fact the system did not rely on being online, that our fundraisers and supporters would experience the same level of service from the system, with the same level of data security even when out of signal.

The solution continues to provide us with a completely data secure, easy to navigate scalable solution for our fundraising. Managed through the main portal, we are even able to give our charity clients access to allow them to monitor activity on a real time basis.

As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising providers by volume we can’t recommend Ideal Fundraising enough.

Company Director,

Since 2013 we’ve used IFS to process far in excess of 225,000 new members on behalf of our six charity clients. The system is secure, smooth and user-friendly, and hiccups are non-existent. The live reporting is a really useful feature too! IFS certainly comes highly recommended from us.

Compliance Manager,

The security of personal information is also extremely important to us and having IFS really helps us with this. As soon as a lottery member is acquired, their personal information transfers off the tablet and into the secure Hub. Also, if a PDA tablet is lost or stolen it can be locked down in minutes.

Managing Director of SEC Fundraising,

We have been with IFS for a couple of years now and now have 6 campaigns up and running which are a mixture of lottery and regular giving campaigns. What we love about the system is that the portal is available on the go.
