Looking to the Cloud?
Is your organization in the non-profit space and considering moving to the cloud? Centrality has the non-profit cloud solution for you. An all-encompassing solution provides a complete hardware refresh, connectivity and 24/7 support all in a monthly per-user basis! Below are some of the more common issues we find that our non-profit customers face when it comes to managing their technology.
Limited Budget for Capital Expenditures
We’ve found our non-profit clients frequently have restricted capital expenditures because it’s difficult, if not impossible, to predict contributions from donors. This means that you most likely have older IT equipment, and may not have upgraded because of the extra cost. Thus face a slower, outdated workflow, such as a lack of basics like enterprise email and shared calendars.
Part of our CompleteCloud Solution includes refreshing equipment at no additional cost. What does this mean for you? We’ll come in and replace all of your old IT infrastructure—servers, switches, computers, monitors—with new, state-of-the-art virtualization machines, each running the most up-to-date operating system. With our package, you don’t pay per machine; you only pay per user. And with Dedicated Exchange, we also give you all the benefits of enterprise exchange email for a fraction of the cost.
Limited IT Resources
Another commonality between our non-profit clients is a lack of IT resources. Many times, IT support and maintenance is dependent on a volunteer – who may be have a contractual obligation to other clients. If an issue arises, how long does it take for the problem to be remediated? Are there times when immediate support is critical, and your IT guy is scheduled out for the next 2 weeks?
With CompleteCloud, support is always available. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whether you are working in the office or are working from home and encounter an issue, a member of our helpdesk team can troubleshoot wherever you are.
Scalability & Retention
One of your other biggest challenges as a non-profit is employee retention. Non-profit employee turnover rates are among the highest across the board, not to mention interns coming in and out regularly. This irregularity of employees presents you with a whole, unique set of IT challenges, one of which is scalability.
Our CompleteCloud Non-Profit Cloud Solution is priced on a monthly per-user basis. For instance, let’s say you are needing to hire 5 new interns for the summer. Our streamlined IT services make it easy and convenient to add and remove users based on the actual IT resources being used. In addition, this makes budgeting for your IT needs a breeze – so you know exactly how much each user is per month with no surprises.
