A Technology firm in Co Londonderry has signed a deal with a Nasdaq-listed US leader in software and services.

The partnership agreement will see Blackbaud using Portstewart firm instaGiv's mobile fundraising platform to provide organisations with an all-in-one programme to encompass text giving, integration with social media and regular giving.

Around 24,000 organisations use one or more of the fundraising services.

Brad Holden, Blackbaud's president of international business, said that mobile technology is exploding globally and praised instaGiv as a market leader in the field.

"We have entered into this partnership with instaGiv because we believe that the innovative platform and products which the company has developed are ideally placed to leverage this growth and assist charities to fully embrace mobile into their fundraising and engagement strategies," he said.

Michael Carlin, managing director of instaGiv, said that the major agreement will position the company for accelerated growth in key export markets.

"The agreement clearly demonstrates that instaGiv has established a strong reputation for innovation and service within this developing global industry," he said.
