Episode #004: Why Volunteer Software Matters with Tony Goodrow

#004 – In this episode, we’re ditching the spreadsheets and talking about how the right volunteer management software can actually expand your organization’s reach, add value, and maybe even attract new volunteers.

This week’s guest is Tony Goodrow of Better Impact. With years of experience and a wealth of knowledge, Tony shares nine good reasons to replace your manual scheduling and data tracking with dedicated software, and he addresses how to overcome some of the barriers holding you back from taking that leap. Tobi shares her experience as a local volunteer in her community, and the difference good volunteer management software makes from that perspective.

We’re addressing budget concerns, fear of change, and what software automation really means for volunteer managers. (Hint: it helps, not hurts!)

If volunteer management software seems a little scary, or you’ve wondered how to take that next step, this podcast is for you!
