Enter Virtual Badge. By using smartphone ID cards, Buffalo Valley Youth Association is able to allow their coaches to register remotely. Rather than take the time required to show up in person to get a badge, prospective coaches and volunteers download the Virtual Badge app, create their account, and request a Buffalo Valley Youth Association badge.
Once the person's background check is processed, staff will approve the Virtual Badge request, and the coaches badge will be issued. All they have to do is open their Virtual Badge mobile app and display their badge when they arrive.
Remove onboarding provides several benefits beyond saving time and being a convenient way to issue ID badges. With an association-wide policy that prohibits parents from going onto the field without having a background check and badge, problems used to arise during game-days.
Now, if a parent or volunteer needs a badge, they can download the Virtual Badge app, request a badge, and a Buffalo Valley Youth Association staff member can instantly approve or deny the badge request instantly.
