Does your organization need to better manage your data? Do you struggle with antiquated and out of date technology? Is it difficult to balance keeping your donor and client information safe and effectively manage costs? Due to budget constraints are you reactive or proactive when you have IT problems? Did your last audit have an increased focus on your data security and disaster recovery plans? Is your staff constantly suffering from downtime or an inability to access reports? Is it difficult to balance keeping your donor and client information safe and effectively manage costs?
At the end of the day, non-profit organizations just want something that works. They want to focus on their mission, not spend their valuable time, energy and resources on technology issues. Many organizations have inherited legacy systems or old and donated hardware that leads to increased downtime, missed opportunities and additional often unplanned expenses when those systems stop working or being supported.
Additionally, nonprofit leaders often mistakenly believe they aren’t of interest to cyber criminals, but the amount of personal data they store from donors and employees, and the tendency to underinvest in cybersecurity measures, make them prime target. It can be difficult to maintain up-to-date technology and hardware, keep pace with technological changes and navigate the shifting regulatory landscape with limited funding.
