Many Nonprofit Organisations in Africa run smoothly with classic on-premises software such as Microsoft Office Standard. However, it’s important to know that in the not-so-distant future, Microsoft will be ending its mainstream support of these offerings. It will usher in an exclusively cloud-based fleet of products like Office 365 and Microsoft 365.
Cloud-based tools can support your nonprofit, with advantages in security, organizational control of data, ease of use and increased agility.
This means that you will be able to work remotely, secure your important databases and increase operations and productivity! Many NPOs work with highly sensitive data and need to ensure that their security and management systems in place are secure, reliable and robust.
Knowing this, Microsoft have created an exclusive Nonprofit offering that provides eligible NPOs with: 2 donated plans and 2 heavily discounted plans. They understand that NPOs need to spend more money on their programmes, to further serve their communities.
Thanks to our partnership with Microsoft, we have recently launched a dedicated department to help your NPO move to a cloud-based solution. Starting today, 24 January 2020, our cloud department will be delivering digital tools and resources on a weekly basis to help your organisation transition smoothly to the cloud. Best of all, our cloud resources and consultations are free of charge! (The countries we will be serving these resources to: Angola, Botswana, eSwatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, São Tomé and Príncipe, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.)
