One of the big highlights at the Nonprofit Technology Conference is the Science Fair, where tech vendors get a chance to show off their latest and greatest products and services.

Here are some vendors of note:


• Provides audio and web conferencing tools to nonprofits
• According to ReadyTalk’s brochure, they deliver “a service that is easy to use, highly available and backed by our friendly expert support staff.”
• This is part of the “cloud computing” revolution, where you can meet anytime, anywhere, while generating more qualified leads for less
• Plus, its economically and green; you “save money and travel less with web meetings”


• Simple website management tool for nonprofit folks with little to no IT experience
• According to Gulo’s postcard, it “offers organizations powerful, yet intuitive website publishing at an affordable monthly price”
• “Edit content right from your browser, and use virtually any design or layout”
• New media friendly – “publish search engine-friendly content, and maintain a calendar, blog and RSS feeds”


• Online backup for nonprofit professionals
• According to Mozy’s flyer, it is “the trusted leader in online backup, save you time and money with simple, secure and affordable backup solutions that allows you to focus on your organization’s future”
• “Manage multi-user environments from the convenience of a web-based administrative console”
• “Backup solutions start at less than $5 per month, with no setup fees, no hardware to purchase, and little management required”

Amazon Payments

• With the millions of people who use Amazon.com to buy almost everything these days, the company has created “an easy-to-use and secure way for US-based, IRS-certified 501c3 nonprofit organizations to collect donations” using their Amazon.com accounts, according to its flyer
• “Easy to configure, cut-and-paste HTML code (and buttons) for collecting donations”
• “Flexibility to set a fixed, minimum or donor-determined donation amount; also accepts micropayments or micro-donations…as small as $1.00 while enjoying Amazon Payments’ low price for transactions less than $10”
• How it works – “set up your account, place Amazon Simple Pay Donations button on your website, donors donate by clicking Amazon Simple Pay Donations button and Amazon transfers donations to you” - simple

I like the idea of ReadyTalk but unfortunately video conferencing software comes with every Windows and Mac computers: MSN Messenger for PC and Ichat for Mac. To be marketed and geared towards businesses will separate it from the integrated software, but the premise is the same.
