Why Use The Cloud
Having previously been the preserve of large enterprises, cloud services are now a simple and cost-effective way for the Third Sector to communicate & collaborate. Cloud computing is ideal for charities looking to negate hardware purchasing while providing access to data wherever and whenever you need it.
Many organisations require staff and volunteers to work remotely, often throughout the country. One of the biggest benefits of the cloud is its ability for remote users to work seamlessly with staff based at a central location – greatly improving their work efficiency while ensuring no time is wasted on additional admin tasks.
Flexibility is paramount in the charity sector, with your organisations staff and volunteers fluctuating at short notice. The cloud offers the possibility of controlling your costs through predictable OpEx pricing and instant access to powerful products as and when you need them.
Premier Charity Solutions has helped hundreds of charitable organisations integrate the cloud into their IT infrastructure. We use our knowledge of industry specific discounts and offers to help us select the best product at the best price. We have an in-depth understanding of the challenges facing charities and the legislation around security and compliance which governs the protection of your data.
