But don't take our word for it. See how our customers are using SignUpGenius to change the world... one sign up at a time!

Great job creating a full-service, easy-to-use product! I am sorry to say that I created a HUGE sign up for our church's Vacation Bible School on another group's sign up site. It was cumbersome and difficult to use. It was so hyped in lingo and didn't clearly lay out the necessary steps to get your sign up created and email sent… I created another sign up for our Sunday School classes in a fraction of the time, and with one million times more ease!
