The Access Group snaps up provider of cloud-based volunteer management software

The Access Group, the Loughborough-headquartered providers of business management software for small and mid-sized organisations, has acquired DutySheet Ltd, trading as Assemble and DutySheet, a provider of cloud-based volunteer management software to hundreds of charities and public sector organisations.

The business will be incorporated into The Access Group’s Non-Profit and Education division, which delivers software that supports over 10,000 public sector, charity and educational organisations in the UK and Ireland.

Simon Baines, Managing Director of Access Non-Profit and Education, said: “The acquisition of DutySheet Ltd proves once again our dedication to supporting our customers in making a greater impact on their causes, offering end-to-end solutions that improve their core mission and operations, whether that’s greater awareness-raising, increased donations and other fundraising activity, better relationships with their volunteers, or more efficiency.

“Today’s charity leaders recognise the growing importance that technology plays as they recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. By integrating Assemble’s volunteer management system into our connected donor management software, Access Workspace for Charities, we can create an unrivalled technology proposition for the sector.

“Our continued investment into the charity sector is matched by our passion for Giving Back, including the Access Charity of the Year initiatives and The Access Foundation, which is focused on making a real difference in people’s lives by awarding grants to charities that make a valuable and measurable positive impact.”

Ben Hayes, co-founder of DutySheet Ltd, said: “Having met the team at Access we believe we have found a company with a similar ethos to our own and see exciting times ahead for our customers and all the team at DutySheet Ltd.

“We know that the organisations and volunteers that we support will benefit greatly from the broader range of connected solutions they will now have at their disposal through the integration of Assemble with Access Workspace for Charities.”

Simon Baines concluded: “Access’s strategy is to continue bringing new and innovative products to market, and the Assemble and DutySheet solutions are a natural fit within our expanding product set.

“We believe there will be a strong benefit to integrating Assemble into Access Workspace for Charities, which allows employees to collaborate easily, securely and confidently with their teams and external volunteers.

“We are also excited to work with DutySheet customers to provide support and enhancements to their solution. Adding the capabilities of DutySheet Ltd’s solutions to our current product range will play an important role as Access continues to deliver best-in-class software solutions that our customers have come to expect.”
