Accelerate your mission with secure and reliable Microsoft solutions

Enable your organisation* to digitally transform, accelerate its mission and drive greater impact. Get started today with Microsoft cloud solutions.

Microsoft have introduced their Tech for Social Impact (TSI) Team who are dedicated to supporting organisations in the charity sector on their journey towards digital transformation. However, for many of our customers in this sector it is not always clear as to how they can leverage some of the non-profit offers from Microsoft in order to support their cloud strategies. Over the last couple of years Microsoft have offered those in this sector $3,500 credit in their Azure tenancy, Office 365 E1 licences free of charge and Office 365 Business Essentials free of charge.

Microsoft’s Commitment to Charities

Partnerships

Microsoft believe technology can be a powerful force for social good, but we know technology alone won’t solve the world’s challenges. That’s why they partner closely with governments, charities and the private sector to foster collective action.

Support

Microsoft work with organisations and their global network of worldwide partners to deliver services that help charities get the most out of technology.

Get Microsoft 365 Business free

Microsoft 365  (M365) brings together the best-in-class productivity of Office 365 with simple device management and security to connect people and information in an intelligent new way.

M365 is a suite of products that includes Office 365, EMS and Windows 10. While many will be aware of Office 365 and Windows 10, for some organisations EMS is a licence that they have not come across before. The Enterprise Mobility + Security suite provides:

  • Azure Active Directory Premium for Multi-Factor Authentication and Single Sign-On capabilities
  • InTune for Mobile Application and Mobile Device Management
  • Azure Information Protection for classifying the sensitivity of documents across the Office stack

The release of the M365 Business donation licences from Microsoft means that charities can now run small-scale proof of concepts (with no licensing costs to the business) to determine how they could transition from their existing environment to Microsoft’s cloud-based solutions. By using each of the components in this suite, users can start to collaborate and increase productivity in a secure way.

Microsoft 365: A secure solution that brings together Office 365 and EMS

Many charities are using technology to embrace digital transformation so they can extend limited resources and empower employees and volunteers to work together more efficiently and securely. By enhancing collaboration and teamwork within a highly secure framework, charities are benefiting from increased inspiration and dedication among the staff and reducing the risk of data breaches.

To make it easier for your charity to create such an environment, Microsoft has combined Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security into Microsoft 365. This comprehensive, intelligent solution provides the foundation to enable your users to collaborate more securely, while allowing your IT staff to control the integrity of your data and access to it.

Download the ‘Microsoft 365: A secure solution that brings together Office 365 and EMS’ eBook to get an overview of Microsoft 365 and a more detailed analysis of how its components work together to provide an intelligent productivity, security and mobility management platform.

We will manage your Microsoft Azure for you

Many charities have already invested in Microsoft technologies and 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 running in Azure, security and more can be a daunting task and one that can distract from an organisation’s core business.

We mix technology and automation with our team of experienced IT Consultants who will deliver ongoing management, configuration, security and 24x7x365 operations.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Charities

Engage with donors and volunteers, connect with beneficiaries and manage your finances

Charities are consolidating their systems in order to reduce complexity and cost and the extensibility and affordability of Microsoft Dynamics 365 is making it a clear technology choice for organisations. Charities are able to decommission multiple legacy systems that had previously been used for fundraising, events management and marketing, as Microsoft Dynamics 365 can comfortably provide this functionality from one single system.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 breaks down silos of data to provide a single view of each supporter across all engagement with the charity. This enhanced insight helps organisations to track the success of their campaigns, identify how to best connect with different kinds of donors, and adapt their processes to maximise their reach.

Working with our strategic partner, Pythagoras, we have built the following packages to help charities get the most from Dynamics 365.

Exploration

The Phoenix and Pythagoras Exploration engagements are designed to give charities deep understanding of the possibilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Organisations will also have a clearer understanding of their high-level requirements for their CRM system, and how Dynamics 365 can support them to achieve their strategic goals.
