Volunteer Management Software
Automate and Streamline
If you don't use volunteer management software, but you need to manage a large number of volunteers, then frankly, you're working too hard. Of course, there's nothing wrong with hard work. You and your volunteers do a lot of it. But shouldn't you save your hard work for the cause you volunteered for in the first place?
The point is simple: you can use Wild Apricot's online software to make your job easier. In fact, you can do a better job with far less work, because it will help you to attract new volunteers, communicate with existing ones, and keep track of them all more effectively.
Still Using Excel or Access?
If you're still using an electronic spreadsheet or simple database application to maintain your volunteer records, then you will find the following list of problems familiar:
- You struggle to ensure data is consistent in a single 'master' list. Multiple copies of your contact list are updated by several people at the same time - making it nearly impossible to which volunteer records are fully up-to-date.
- Combing through emails, faxes and payment slips to reconcile registrations and payments.
- No two people entering volunteer information classify common characteristics in the same way, so your list becomes very large and messy, and impossible for anyone to decipher.
- Duplicate and outdated records turn your days into waking nightmares.
- Volunteers are eager to help - but your current tools are hard to use (or nonexistent) and their capabilities go underutilized.
Is There a Better Way?
Well, that's better than a stack of paper or index cards, but even electronic spreadsheets and databases can get pretty messy if you're not constantly cleaning them up. It's a time-consuming job, but someone has to do it - right?
Not really. You could use Wild Apricot's software instead. It's been designed to store contact records and link them to your Website and other software tools to automate and streamline administrative tasks for clubs, associations and communities - including volunteer organizations like yours.
