For the last two years I have used eSP’s Online Volunteer Management Program to manage the volunteer needs for our annual %K.

The site is easy to use, with a lot of information and options to give your volunteers an easy and informative experience!  The attention to detail the staff provides is impeccable!  They are prompt to respond and quick to resolve any problems you may have.  I would highly recommend  this program for small or large scale projects!  I will definitely continue to use their services!!

“Jeani and team from eSP made an inaugural event a little less daunting. With immediate email support and desire for perfection, I not only could count on eSP to make sure our necessary number of volunteers was met, but knew I’d have their support from event start to event follow-up. eSP made our small event management team feel as if we had the experience of a large organization. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a personalized and dependable experience!”

I think this piece is missed all too often on large scale events – a strong volunteer system is imperative to the overall success of the event. Without our volunteers many events would not be the great success they are!

VoMaSmart has provided a complete and comprehensive volunteer system that allows for easy sign up, simple volunteer tracking, reporting and communications.

Can’t thank the VoMaSmart team for the countless hours and customer support – they care as much as we do about our volunteers!

VoMa helped the Washington West Film Festival manage our 100 volunteers this year.
We are a nonprofit prestigious film festival in our fourth year. Every year we grow more and more but our volunteer staff’s size does not grow enough to keep up with the rate of the festival’s growth. As the Volunteer Coordinator and Venue Manager, having to manage the growing number of festival volunteers has become a monster task.

Wine in the Woods, one of the largest wine festivals on the east coast, attracts between 20,000 to 30,000 visitors annually.  450 to 500 volunteers are necessary to run this event efficiently.

Ann Combs, Manager, Volunteers & Special Projects for Howard County Recreation and Parks has managed the volunteers for over 12 years.  The event is hosted on the third weekend in May on Saturday and Sunday.  In previous years, Ann has been required to spend 5 hours daily in April and 6 hours daily in May to register volunteers, move volunteers to positions, answer questions, create spreadsheets for group emails and more.

This year Howard County Recreation and Parks used VoMaSmart online registration and management tool.  Ann has received at most, three phone calls a week.  450 volunteers have registered with only 13 requests for online support which were handled by VoMaSmart customer service. She was able to create group emails in 10 minutes and download spreadsheets in 5 minutes.

Ann Combs saved 270 hours this year. The monetary value to HCRP was between $11,000 and $12,000.   The value doubles when you consider the other projects Ann Combs and her assistant were able to complete during that same period of time.  Extended Value – $22,000 to $24,000.

Volunteers were surveyed after the event and all volunteers liked the program.  “Next year we will start advertising the VolunteerBuz contest, sponsor prizes and raffle for all volunteers in February.  The volunteers have to show up to win – this will help in attracting more volunteers, retention and show ups.”

When asked, Ann stated “I would pay $100,000” for this program, it made my life so much easier.
