The City of Fort Collins had a problem. They had a robust, rapidly growing volunteer program and a new off-the-shelf volunteer database that couldn't keep up. The staff was spending so much time trying to make their multiple systems work, they weren't able to dedicate the time they needed to engage their valuable volunteers. The Natural Areas Department took action and began their search for a VMS that checked all the boxes.
Not able to find an existing solution, Fort Collins Natural Areas partnered with local software development firm, Squarei Technologies, to build and support a state-of-the-art volunteer management system. Offero is the result of this collaboration. Motivated to earn a coveted Malcolm Baldridge Award, the highest presidential honor for performance excellence, City of Fort Collins leadership recognized the need for unified city engagement and expanded Offero into an enterprise-wide system which serves as the hub for everything related to volunteering and public participation for residents and city staff. The City of Fort Collins won the Malcolm Baldridge Award in 2017.
