Volunteer based non-profits contribute hours of work to their cause. Documenting these hours can be challenging and burdens an already hefty workload for both staff and volunteers.
With VolunText, organizations can prompt their database of volunteers via SMS to reply to the message with the number of hours they contributed that month.
For volunteers, reporting couldn't be simpler: type a number, send, done.
Using MongoDB, responses are stored by month in an annual log for each volunteer along with a calculation of their total contribution for the year. The organziation can view live updates of total volunteered hours on the administrator dashboard page. Volunteers can log in to their dashboard to submit hours, opt in or out of SMS messages, and connect to their Facebook page. Once a volunteer has connected VolunText to Facebook, they can build awareness for the organization by sharing their progress to their Facebook feed.
