What is Microsoft Tech for Social Impact?
In 2017 Microsoft announced the launch of Microsoft Tech for Social Impact, with a goal to help not for profit organisations around the world achieve greater success by leveraging the power of cloud technology to accelerate their digital transformation.
Technology can be a powerful tool to help address the world’s most challenging issues. It can enable NFP organisations to be more productive, more innovative and ultimately, to drive greater societal impact.
Microsoft have a division dedicated to supporting not-for-profit organisations called Tech for Social Impact (TSI). The initiative focuses on the following areas to support charities in accelerating their digital transformation and increasing their capacity for change, allowing you to focus your attention on:
- Engaging donors and volunteers
- Empowering employees
- Optimising operations
- Innovation for impact
- Ensuring security and compliance.
Together with Microsoft, we're committed to delivering technology solutions that are accessible, affordable and relevant for NFPs everywhere, which is why donations and discounts are available for cloud solutions including Microsoft 365, Office 365, Power BI and Azure.
Which Solution is Best for Your Business?
Through extensive technological investments, Microsoft has enlisted preferential licensing frameworks and administrative structures dedicated to supporting this cause. Engaging donors, empowering employees, innovating operations and facilitating security and compliance are all key focuses of the initiative to achieve digital transformation.
When it comes to 365 for NFPs, we meet your individual requirements with a range of Microsoft products and services. These include:
Microsoft Office 365
A tried and tested software suite, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. In addition to its ability to streamline efficiency, non-profit organisations are entitled to 10 free licenses for the Microsoft suite with the 365 Business package.
Microsoft Dynamics 365
Offered to non-profit organisations with a substantial discount, Dynamics 365 is Microsoft's customer relationship management (CRM) service. It enables not for profit organisations to build their own cloud finance system or leverage existing solutions like the Dynamics NFP Accelerator.
Covering everything from mapping, to artificial intelligence databases, security and networking, Microsoft Azure offers a huge array of cloud computing services available for NFPs to engage with. Qualifying organisations will even receive credit to spend on these services, enabling further digital transformation.
Microsoft Power BI
Microsoft Power BI is an incredible tool for building dynamic and in-depth dashboards and reports. NFPs can receive the desktop app free of charge and gain access to the service for a discounted monthly fee.
We're here to help.
The demands on charities are perhaps greater than ever in 2020. As a Microsoft software partner, TES wants to make a difference using our unique opportunity to deliver value with Dynamics 365 for NFP organisations.
