POINT is a life changer for non-profits!

POINT has been a life changer in terms of keeping track of my volunteers' hours. I can do so much with POINT that we have not been able to do as efficiently before.

Pros

-POINT is accessible on both a downloadable app as well as in a browser, making it accessible to volunteers at all different levels of tech knowledge. -POINT has awesome giving features, such as the ability to add an Amazon wishlist. It also encourages volunteers to donate. -POINT keeps track of volunteer hours according to event and/or program. It allows volunteers to manually input hours, as well as check in to an existing event. It saves so much time! -POINT allows me to send emails to specific departmental groups of volunteers. -POINT keeps track of the average volunteer worth, this is helpful for grant reporting. -I can add multiple admins. -POINT has the ability to make events virtual, which is helpful because many of our events have been virtual. -POINT offers a graph for each volunteer to show volunteering trends. -POINT offers the ability to export data. -POINT gives each volunteer a resume of all of their completed volunteer work, including manually input time. -The aesthetic of POINT is great! -So much more...

Cons

-I would love to see an addition in the future to allow the capability to see the breakdown of programs for each volunteer when exporting the data. i.e.: Jane Doe worked 7 hours in Crisis and 7 hours in Outreach - we should be able to see that, instead of 14 hours total in the spreadsheet.

Reasons for Choosing POINT

-POINT is free for non-profits. -The customer service is amazing, I had a great demo that answered all my questions. -Other software only checked some of my boxes, but POINT checked all of them.

POINT has been a lifesaver

Pros

POINT has helped me efficiently schedule and manage volunteers for fresh market. The app allows our volunteers to see when we need the most help and then sign up for those shifts easily. Before I used POINT, volunteers would email me to schedule shifts which became an unmanageable practice when the number of volunteers we needed tripled at the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for POINT and recommend it to any nonprofit volunteer coordinator.

Cons

The POINT app already has all the features I need for my role.

Point review

a powerful product. Innovate regularly. Strong support and service.

Pros

Volunteers like to use it to discover opportunities and track their efforts. The platform attracted us to a group of eager volunteers. Innovate regularly. Multiple administrators. Notice about registration. The ability to send emails to volunteers.

Cons

As the visibility of the app increases, we look forward to attracting more volunteers and entering more markets commensurate with our national footprint

Point- Great for non-profits

Pros

We use Point to recruit volunteers for our upcoming events, such as fundraising events, tabling/community events, and more. Point is always effective at promoting our events to new categories of people that we otherwise would not have been able to reach. Their interface is extremely easy to use on our end, and very straightforward for users as well. The clean design makes volunteering a snap. We couldn't be happier with Point.

Cons

Honestly, there are no cons to the PointApp that jump out to me. When first using the app, the volunteers skewed very young- almost all high school students. Over time though, this has been rectified and we have a wide range of ages for volunteers- great work expanding.

Reasons for Switching to POINT

VolunteerHub was great for management and data, but did not have great reach. The only way people could find our postings was through our own website. With PointApp, we have data and management, as well as expanded reach.

Excelent app

Not only have we been able to keep all of our volunteer hours in one place, we've also gained a lot of new faces from our events being posted on the app. It's very user friendly and saves a lot of admin time.

Pros

We love that it's free for us to use, it's easy for the volunteers to use, and we've been able to reach more people at the same time as we manage our own events.

Cons

Maybe if admins would be able to manually add volunteer hours for those that do not have access to app or computer.

Reasons for Choosing POINT

Before we used POINT, our volunteers submitted their hours monthly to our volunteer coordinator via email and then we tracked it in a spreadsheet. This is sooo much easier and we're able to better see where volunteers hours went.
