What our customers are saying...


Hayley Wickenheiser
Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival 

“It has made an absolutely massive difference in logistically managing & coordinating all our volunteers as the week goes for 8 days over 2 weeks...we're going to continue using the system next year, keep growing our event, and keep helping women's hockey get bigger and better.” 


Danielle Boiston
World Economic Forum

“InitLive’s targeted broadcast feature made it easy to communicate a message with exactly the right group of volunteers, this made connecting with my team easy on event day!”

Bridget_InitLive Testimonial

Bridget Erlikh
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

“I was very satisfied with the communication features on event day. It was critical to be able to reach my volunteers; we used the broadcast feature in the app to do this. Additionally, I was able to adapt the Reports feature to not only help fill spots when we were short volunteers but also to track equipment we were using onsite. This [InitLive] helped us dot i’s and cross t’s in the conference Headquarters.”


Julian Selody
TD Ottawa Jazz Festival

"InitLive made volunteer scheduling and recruitment easy and the Broadcast feature provided a sense of security throughout the event."


Wolfram Lunscher
IEEE Ottawa Section - The International Electromagnetic Compatibility Conference

“This year, we decided to try something new: the InitLive Volunteer Management Software. I must say, this software greatly reduced the workload on the volunteer managers...[InitLive] made the process very much more streamlined than in the past - reduced the amount of labor considerably. So, all in all we had a great experience. InitLive really came through and really assisted in making this conference a tremendous success.” 


Veronica Sinnaeve
TD Toronto Jazz Festival

"InitLive intrigued me because it is unlike any other volunteer management system I'd read about; it had everything I wanted. The Check-in feature let my team know when our Festival bases were covered, ensuring smooth operations across our site."


Allison Young
Events Project Coordinator - Keller Williams

"I am staffing schedules for our large 17,000+ attendee events in which we fly out our 250+ employees from headquarters to staff. There’s customer service and registration, working booths in exhibit halls, human directional, lunch support, filming, basically tons of different volunteer shifts and a lot of moving parts. Avery, and the whole InitLive team really, are what we think of as customer service goals. When we discuss who we want to resemble as a company in terms of customer service, the answer is the level of support and consideration that Avery provides to us. When we discuss what other companies we work with lack, it’s things that InitLive provides. Avery consistently reaches out pre and post event to see how everything went, what’s coming up next, if she can help in any way, and to update us on their road map. She listens to our post-event review and puts in enhancement requests and helps us come up with solutions with a smile! And all of this is without even mentioning the physical product, which works like a breeze! Entering shifts is easy, especially now with their new copy shifts feature (thank goodness!). You can categorize and color code shifts which is really helpful for admin purposes. As an event manager I love being able to see the entire schedule at all times at my fingertips, and EVERYONE loves having access to everyone’s contact info (which we as managers can do right from the schedule). As a volunteer, shift reminders are great to have, and it’s really easy to contact your manager from your schedule as well! The documents tab is also very useful to put in emergency procedures, guidelines, and venue layouts. They are also transparent with things they are working on (like being able to add and remove shifts from your phone) and seem to be a very responsive and proactive company."


Andrew Donaldson
World Junior Girls Golf Championship

"I strongly support their system as it allowed us to know instantaneously where we stood with volunteer necessities along with having a clear overview of scheduling at any moment throughout the Championship."


Tammy Huber, CMP
American Hematology Society

“Our email system wasn’t working and the wifi was unreliable but InitLive never failed!”

"InitLive helps us manage our growing volunteer base at multiple festivals each year; it's great to have all of our volunteer information and schedules in one central location."
