Partners sought for volunteering programme

volsWe’re looking for partner organisations to receive free training and support during a pilot programme for a new and innovative model for engaging and growing volunteers for arts, charities and museums.

From January to March 2016 Tickbox are providing free support and training to a limited number of organisations to create or build on their Volunteer engagement.  This is part of our Volunteer Makers pilot project to understand demand for the new Volunteer Makers platform before a national roll-out from July 2016.

Volunteer Makers is an online volunteer engagement platform that helps organisations to harness the creative, social and intellectual capital within a volunteer community – adding economic, social and creative value for any organisation, as well as long-term sustainability.

The platform operates as a challenge database, automatically matching volunteer opportunities with skills and allowing extremely flexible levels of volunteering activity to encourage a wider volunteer community. It actively encourages volunteers to take ownership of their own volunteering activity and to help drive and support volunteering across the organisation.

For more information visit the Volunteer Makers website.

To take part in the programme, or to find out more, contact us here.

App R&D project kicks off in London

8348989885_e6ed96e478_zWe’re excited to be beginning a year-long research and development project to develop our prototype cost-modelling application with one of the world’s biggest technical support and management companies.

The innovative app allows the company to efficiently project costs for multi-million pound projects in a user- and client-friendly way and has been used in prototype form for the last 18 months.

Following a technical workshop with the company at their UK HQ in central London, we are now taking the app to the next stage with enhancements to its data-processing, UX and design to make it what will be the most powerful client-facing cost modeller in the industry.
