CALGARY, AB, June 23, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Benevity Inc., the leading global supplier of workplace giving and volunteer management software solutions, announced its release of an unqualified SSAE 16 report, which confirms the company’s ability to provide service and data security assurance. The company also announced the release of a number of new product features that further enhance the user and administrator experience for its growing portfolio of enterprise clients.

“Security is vitally important to us and our enterprise clients,” says Bryan de Lottinville, CEO of Benevity, Inc. “This report serves as an endorsement of our data security and infrastructure. We are proud to be one of the only vendors in our space recognized for meeting these rigorous standards.”

Benevity also released an impressive array of new features for its award-winning workplace giving solution, Spark, this past week. The latest quarterly enhancement delivers advanced features to Benevity’s enterprise clients, users and charity partners, and demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to bring its clients the best available tools to increase the level of engagement and impact of their programs. New features include:

  • A major update to the user ‘Giving Account’ that provides options for incentivizing participants in creative and cost-effective ways
  • Customized matching amounts so users have more control over how their company-matched gifts are applied
  • Improved flexibility for users to schedule ongoing payroll deductions to support their favorite charities

By aligning with the international audit standard ISAE No. 3402, SSAE 16 provides confidence in the security of companies operating globally.
