Tour

Volgistics is a cloud-based system that helps you manage your volunteers. Instead of installing software on your computer, you use the Volgistics system through your web browser. Volgistics operates from a centrally located, secure data center.

You don't need to worry about:

  • Installing or maintaining any software - simply login online.
  • Software updates - new features are added automatically.
  • Hardware upgrades - a computer with Internet access is all you need.
  • Losing valuable data due to computer error - your data is backed up for you

Volgistics gives volunteer leaders mobility

You can use your volunteer information anytime, anywhere: from the office, at home, or on the road. All you need is a computer (PC or Mac) with an Internet connection. High speed Internet connections are recommended for the locations you work from regularly.

Integrate

Integrate Volgistics with your own web site to advertise volunteer opportunities, and collect volunteer application forms online. Just add simple HTML links to your web pages where you want to post volunteer opportunities or provide volunteer application forms. Volgistics does the rest.

Across town or across the world

People at branch offices can use Volgistics simultaneously without dedicated network connections to your headquarters. All they need is an Internet connection.

Involve volunteers

The Internet offers volunteer leaders exciting new opportunities for volunteer interaction, and two optional Volunteer Information Center components called VicNet and VicTouch can make it happen.


Volunteers use VicNet online to check their schedules, sign-up for openings, post their interests and availability, communicate with you, and report and monitor their volunteer service. Volunteers access VicNet online from home or anywhere they have an Internet connection.


VicTouch
offers similar features, at touch-screen equipped workstations or kiosks you locate on-site in your facility. VicTouch includes a check-in and check-out system ideal for on-site volunteers.


Both VIC options integrate seamlessly with your Volgistics database, reducing or eliminating your need to post volunteer service information manually. The also help to keep volunteers informed and involved.
