Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) September 23, 2011
Volgistics, Inc. reached a milestone as it recently passed the 2,000 customer mark. This milestone solidifies Volgistics’ position as the leader in web based volunteer management software with over 2.3 million volunteer records tracked by its clients. The Michigan company launched its current product in 2004.
Company officials state the business is currently growing at over 33% a year and that the current customer base is now double the size it was in 2009. This growth is fueled by the program’s ease of use, feature rich environment, unlimited online support and low start-up and maintenance costs. Because it is completely web based, organizations do not have any initial costs associated with purchasing software or paying licensing fees. They also do not need IS or IT department support to install the software or maintain back-ups.
To ensure customers continue to enjoy reliable and secure access to their volunteer information, Volgistics continues to upgrade its equipment and facilities. Recent server upgrades were introduced to increase the reliability and capacity of the system. The company will also move its physical operations to new facilities that will allow room for additional staff. The new location will feature direct access to a backbone ISP provider as well as in-house hosting of additional standby backup servers.
The majority of Volgistics’ customers are located throughout the United States and Canada, but the program is also rapidly expanding worldwide with approximately ten new trial accounts a month coming from countries outside of the United States. Customer accounts range in size from those with over 41,000 volunteer records to those with fewer than fifty. The customizable features of the software allow it to be used by a wide variety of volunteer organizations including medical centers, museums, animal shelters, zoos, libraries, schools, parks and recreation departments and much more.
Organizations interested in learning more about the Volgistics software can visit the company’s website at http://www.Volgistics.com. Free thirty day trial accounts are available and online staff is available to answer sales and support inquiries thirteen hours a day on weekdays, between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm EST on Saturdays and at three points throughout the day on Sundays.
