/ SignUpGenius Equips Schools for Back-To-School Success
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — August 11, 2015 — This fall, leading online sign up provider SignUpGenius will play an important role for schools across the country. Educators, parents and community members rely on the site as a one-stop organizational tool to coordinate everything from the classroom to the boardroom.
“Recruiting, scheduling and keeping track of 80 volunteers each month to work in our school cafeteria used to take hours! SignUpGenius simplifies it all. Our parents like it too because it's easy to sign up with friends and they don't have to wait for me to get back to them to get on the schedule,” says Shari Hartman of Wilmette, Illinois.
In June, SignUpGenius was an exhibitor and sponsor of the National PTA Conference where more than 1,500 attendees represented 54 state caucuses. “It was so rewarding to meet some of our key PTA users and learn how SignUpGenius has enabled them to increase their volunteer numbers and expand their overall impact across their school. Several users mentioned they are excited to try collecting payments on SignUpGenius this year for things like carnival ticket sales and school fundraisers,” says Kirsten Mayers, SignUpGenius support and testing analyst.
The North Carolina chapter of the PTA also used SignUpGenius to organize volunteers for the event. “We received many positive comments on the features offered by SignUpGenius,” says Nellie Taylor, office coordinator for the North Carolina PTA. “Volunteers said the site was user friendly and provided the opportunity to easily make changes to their volunteer commitment — updating, adding and deleting volunteer times. Additionally, SignUpGenius customer service is exceptional.”
SignUpGenius also has launched a Back-to-School Boost Giveaway. The sweepstakes encourages users to nominate their favorite school for a chance to win $5,000 to be used in whatever way the school chooses. The company also is offering a discount during the fall rush for organizations that want to upgrade their subscriptions to one of three Pro-level options. Prices start at $99.99 per year. Both the giveaway and special Pro promotion end September 15, 2015.
SignUpGenius simplifies the process of coordinating events and people by providing online sign ups for non-profits, schools, sports, churches, families, colleges, businesses, and organizations. By enabling up to 10 million unique visitors per month to sign up for tasks online, SignUpGenius has done away with the need for paper sign ups, "reply all" emails, and phone trees.
