Custom online registration app for volunteers triggers 20% increase in applications

Mercy Ships, which owns and operates the world’s largest charitable hospital ship, has chosen OutSystems, the enterprise Rapid Application Delivery (RAD) platform provider, to create a custom online application that has led to a 20% increase in volunteer registrations for the charity in just two months.

With no packaged applications available and a need for deep integration to existing systems, Mercy Ships chose a RAD platform to quickly deliver the custom application and streamline its volunteer registration process.

Before implementing the platform, the Mercy Ships Human Resources Department reviewed and entered data from the hundreds of applications they received each year by hand.

Chris Gregg, Chief Information Officer, Mercy Ships, said: “OutSystems Platform gave us the ability to respond quickly to a key business need and deliver a high-quality product in record time.”

Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO said: “We’re extremely pleased to partner with Mercy Ships in bringing world-class healthcare to people in desperate need of these vital services. OutSystems is committed to helping organizations rapidly create, deploy and manage enterprise mobile and web applications to further their business goals and keep pace with end-users rapidly changing needs.”
