Does Volunteer Impact Work The Way I want it to?
We’ve put together over 50 minutes of demonstration video so that you can get a good sense of how Volunteer Impact works. If you have any questions based on what you see, you can book some one-on-one time with Cameron. He’ll be happy to learn about what you’re trying to accomplish, answer your questions and generally help you with whatever you need.
If what you see in the demonstration videos suggests Volunteer Impact is a good fit for your organization, you can give the software a try with a free 30 day trial.
CAN SOMETHING BE FUN AND WORK AT THE SAME TIME?
We'll try to make it that way for you.
When you sign up for a free 30 day trial, you'll have access to all our training materials and our personal assistance if you need it.
All of the implementation steps you take, content you add, and new fields you create can stay with you if you decide we're a good fit, or we can close the trial account down and start you off with a clean slate.
You’ll soon be the newest member of the Better Impact family.
