Chacne lead them to 2010 strong> Slovakia, where they met Andrej Kiska strong> and the Slovak GOOD ANGEL strong> project.
This organization has impressed them so much that they have decided to found THE GOOD ANGEL strong> in Czechia. It happened in 2011 strong>.
Both founders strong>work for the GOOD ANGEL strong> foundation , and they cover their operations and other organizational costs from their own resources.
All donations are divided to the last penny strong> into families with children.
one of the successes of the foundation is the support from many companies.
The main partners are: Google, who helps with online presentations and provided a $25,000 grant; Raiffeisen Bank, whoprovided free bank accounts and T-Mobile, who developed a system for payments through SMS and is preparing a mobile app.
Petr Sýkora was lead to GOOD ANGEL through a long business journey. In 1993 he together with his friend, Jan Černý, founded the company Papyrus, that delivered office supplies to companies. The company was a success. Deliveries of paper and office supplies to companies and offices were completely new in the Czech Republic in 1993 .
First orderes were brought to the customers by the associates themselves, carried in a backpack. As the firm grew bigger, new branches were established in Slovakia and Hungary. It ebcame the most significant company in this sector in central and eastern Europe.
Thanks to strong marketing, the foundation has grown at a high pace since its early days. We had to adapt to such rapid development and solve the automation of some steps. For example, manual edits of each new Angel registration were no longer manageable, they were slowing down the whole process of donation. We therefore decided to move from the originally acquired system from a Slovak company Asseco to a new system that should process real-time data directly on our website.
ABRA Software has been chosen to implement strong> the new web-based information system to deliver an online donor and recipient management system and all other data covering the fund’s agenda.
ABRA Software developed the web system strong> within a few months. It had to be deployed ahead of the planned marketing campaign, which predicted an increase of 10,000 registrations. ABRA has also been able to convert the history of registrations, recipients, and payments to around 50,000 records strong>.
ABRA unified strong> all data into one database strong>, automated strong> data management in the online environment, delivered custom API and cloud space, on which the system is running. The system has been linked to www.dobryandel.cz , which is under management of the company Play.cz .
