"An incredible fit!"
"In our experience, [Rosterfy] has been an incredible fit," Hendrickson said. "The partnership, the flexibility, the level of attention-to-detail. It's graphically appealing and easy to navigate. We have volunteers who run the full gamete of ages 18 and up - and to be able to connect with that entire audience is really important to us and something that Rosterfy has been able to provide."

"It is cost-effective, scalable, and is not only easy to navigate administratively, but is quite attractive to the Gen Z students too"
"Though we have access to other online, electronic resources, we extensively researched volunteer management systems that would specifically fit our needs in versatile and valuable ways. Rosterfy quickly rose to the top. It is certainly cost-effective, scalable, and is not only easy to navigate administratively, but is apparently quite attractive to the Gen Z students we work with regularly. They find it visually appealing, and enjoy the volunteer portal, where they can find all communications, as well as certificates of completion, and words of gratitude before, during, and after volunteering. Overall, we look forward to optimizing our Rosterfy experience, and would suggest it for other higher education institutions looking for time-saving technology that is secure, innovative, and effective!”

"It’s made our lives so much easier!"
“Rosterfy has changed the face of how we run Daffodil Day. It enables us to manages the volunteers en-mass in a way that keeps them engaged and keeps them feeling loved. Managing 1,600 to 1,800 people on spreadsheets didn’t give our volunteer team any capacity to look at the volunteering experience – it was all focused on the act of rostering.
“We can retain our volunteer database year-on-year because we’ve improved the technology, their experiences and their training – it’s made our lives so much easier”

"A unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform"
"This year we have set a new bar for the NFL and successfully delivered the largest ever volunteer workforce for a Super Bowl with over 10,000 volunteers. Rosterfy has been at the core of every single touch point. From initial registration, screening, training, interviewing, assigning roles and shifts, through to game time check in and post event thankyou’s. The platform offers a true end-2- end solution to managing a complex, large scale program. I'm delighted that the success of this program has resulted in Minneapolis for SB LII, partnering with Rosterfy. With the team at Rosterfy being experienced event practitioners they offer a unique combination of knowledge and experience with a world leading platform."
