Supporting the UK Charity Sector Here and Now.

With both time and money being a scarce resource and the challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic, the charity sector continues to face unprecedented challenges.

Phoenix Software want to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the UK charity sector and help those charities that need it the most to continue providing their vital support and services for many years to come.

One practical way that Phoenix can help, is by offering to support the sector with a completely free of charge Azure Managed Service to alleviate financial pressures, improve security and free up staff to do vital work.

With many organisations having already invested in Microsoft technologies we see that they are now looking for a safe pair of hands to assist them with Microsoft Azure as they start to move some of their workloads to the cloud. However, accessing the resources and expertise to handle the configuration of Azure, the management of workloads, security and more can be a daunting task and one that can distract from an organisation’s core mission.

Our Managed Service mixes technology and automation with our team of experienced IT Consultants who will deliver ongoing management, configuration, cost optimisation and security. Put simply, you gain access to our Microsoft-certified engineers and architects, we manage your Azure environment, your teams focus on more strategic projects rather than the daily management of Azure and you get the most out of your cloud investment.
