CivicPlus® has launched the newest solution in its portfolio of software systems designed exclusively for local government. CivicOptimize® Volunteer is an automated, mobile responsive volunteer management tool that local governments can integrate into their website or citizen engagement portal. Volunteers can use it to browse and apply for community opportunities based on their interests, and administrative staff or leaders from area non-profits can use it to approve and manage their placements with no paper forms and no delays.
Katrina Lewison, CivicOptimize Vice President and General Manager, says that, like with so many CivicPlus solutions, the idea for Volunteer came directly from its clients’ needs.
“We are inspired by the innovative ways our clients are responding to the increased needs of their citizens during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis,” said Lewison. “One particular area of need our clients brought to our attention is the ability to support the facilitation of community service projects led by area partners. Our clients told us that they needed a way to automate and streamline the pairing of citizens who want to give back to non-profits in need. So, we built it.”
CivicPlus’ engineers built CivicOptimize Volunteer on its Productivity platform, a solution that allows administrators to build custom mobile apps and forms or integrate any of CivicPlus’ existing ready-to-use applications directly into their website.
“CivicOptimize Productivity is the most powerful tool in our portfolio as we continue to support local governments rapidly working on migrating traditionally manual services online,” said Lewison.” It’s helping our clients continue to service their citizens and do it safely for their staff and their community—and it’s easy enough for anyone of any technical ability to use.”
