Microsoft Dynamics 365

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a robust platform that excels in the sales and finance CRM market. With its highly customisable nature, it offers a wide range of options for building a platform that suits your needs. However, when it comes to specific considerations for volunteer management, it requires some creative solutions and workarounds.

Rosterfy stands as the unrivaled leader in volunteer management software, offering a cutting-edge suite of capabilities and features. Our platform boasts automated sequences and workflows, along with customizable communication tools and branded volunteer portals that set us apart from the competition.

Feature Summary

Both systems are great options for volunteer managers looking to streamline their administrative tasks, eliminate the use of spreadsheets, and dedicate more time to making an impact within their community.

While Microsoft Dynamics have a volunteer management sub-offering (Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofits) only with Rosterfy, can you gain access to features that have been specifically designed for volunteer management, and have been successfully utilized by mass workforce programs worldwide.
