Eliminate Barriers to Engagement: Background Check Integration
Getting a new or returning volunteer on-boarded as quickly as possible while assuring a high degree of safety and security is a major priority for VolunteerMatters and our customers. Streamlining the criminal background check process for volunteers is no exception. VolunteerMatters will be offering a new method for performing varying types of background checks that can be performed in-line with a volunteer’s registration or sign-up. The integration will be completely seamless, will only require 2 steps, and will not require the volunteer to leave the volunteer portal (to go to the background check provider’s site). We will be starting the new integration method with Intellicorp and move to other providers quickly thereafter.

VolunteerMatters is always looking to improve the user experience for our volunteers. This release focuses on the sign-up process for existing and new volunteers - especially when the application for credentials is required (e.g., electronic agreements, certifications, background checks and online training). The new approach will incorporate artificial intelligence to eliminate steps as well as improve messaging along the way so the volunteer feels 100% confident in the steps necessary to engage with your organization.
Zapier integration allows API subscribers to integrate with any of the 700+ SaaS providers that participate in the Zapier community whenever a someone registers, signs-up, withdraws, checks-in, or checks-out of a volunteer assignment. This latest release will extend/expand on the information available with each "Zap" so that you may better respond to each occurrence within VolunteerMatters.
