Client Background

The client is one of the largest voluntary health organizations in the United States. With a mission to build a healthier world, free of cardiovascular diseases and strokes, the association also funds innovative research, advocates for stronger public health policies, and provides critical tools and information that save and improve lives.


With over 10,000 volunteers joining our client each year, onboarding each volunteer involved tasks that went through a sequence of operations. It also involved numerous approval cycles and reiterations before they finally got approved.

As they continued to grow, the process of volunteer onboarding over papers and emails became voluminous.

Simple tasks, like tracking the status of a process, where it had stalled, what was stalling, and the duration to complete a task, were a lot more complicated than one could expect.

The staff at the NPO had to run parallel processes to ensure that nothing fell through the cracks.

Our Solution

Beyond Key created a personalized volunteer onboarding add-in that was integrated within the client's existing Office 365 ecosystem. It provides smart onboarding tools to engage volunteers like information about their role, allowing them to view tasks and speed up productivity with learning resources through which volunteers learn their jobs faster and engage in a better way.

Innovation Creativity

Role-based access to admin, HR, department admins, reporting manager, and task assignees.

Resilience/ Reduced stress

Personalized look and feel of the add-in, features like color theme, company logo, and date format based on the location.

Encouraging paperless environment

Manage task categories: pre-joining, on-joining, post-joining.

 Effectiveness on the job

Easy standard tasks creation and assignment and group tasks into task templates for easy assignment.
