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 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 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.
People at branch offices can use Volgistics simultaneously without dedicated network connections to your headquarters. All they need is an internet connection.
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.
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.
You can use Volgistics from any computer, anywhere, as long as it has an internet connection and any popular web browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

If you plan to use Volgistics regularly from a particular location (such as your office), a 'broadband' or high-speed connection such as DSL, cable modem, or T1 is recommended for that computer (if your connection to the internet fails you would need to restore the connection or move to a computer that has an internet connection available to access Volgistics).
