November 19, 2021 – Moorestown, NJ – GiveSignup | RunSignup announces the launch of its volunteer check-in capability as part of its volunteer management capabilities. Event organizers are now able to efficiently monitor their volunteer staff ‘s arrival and task assignment using the free RaceDay CheckIn app. At-a-glance reporting gives organizers an understanding of those actively working assigned roles at any given time, and allows them to adjust resources as needed. This new check-in capability rounds out GiveSignup | RunSignup’s existing volunteer registration and management feature available for current customers. The volunteer check-in feature is a natural addition to the RaceDay CheckIn app. The app is one of the most highly used technology products offered by GiveSignup | RunSignup and has processed more than 1.1 million participants already in 2021.
“Volunteers are a fundamental part of producing an event from stuffing bags to handing out water to working the course or the expo. Given this importance, we offer a complimentary volunteer signup and management system for our events to use. The check-in capabilities is something our events are already very much appreciating and it will improve the efficiency and bypass previous issues by ensuring the appropriate level of volunteers are covering each role. In the end it just makes for a much better experience for participants and that is a win-win for everyone,” said Bob Bickel, CEO and Founder of GiveSignup | RunSignup.
The new volunteer check-in capability is now available in GiveSignup | RunSignup’s free RaceDay CheckIn app. The RaceDay CheckIn app is a mobile app designed to provide efficient processing of incoming event participants and now volunteers. Available for Android and iOS devices, event organizers are able to set up pre-set volunteer roles for an easy volunteer check-in process. The reporting on the backend provides an at-a-glance view of current volunteers that have checked in for specific roles in order to identify any gaps or to respond to fluctuating conditions.
GiveSignup | RunSignup’s volunteer sign up and management features are integrated into the registration platform. Event organizers are able to set up volunteer categories and teams with descriptions and any special qualifications, the number of volunteers needed for a specified role, and dates and time slots needed. Volunteers then sign up for various open roles from the event’s website. In addition, event organizers can then use the platform to communicate with volunteers any instructions and important information and monitor areas needing additional resources.
