As a small charity, you may not have made the move into the cloud just yet. Maybe you don’t have the time, resource or funds, or just don’t know where to start. Maybe you made the switch over to Microsoft Teams during COVID to enable you to continue delivering your essential services, but still use personal emails accounts or other non-Microsoft email solutions. Whatever your situation, now is the perfect time to get everything centralised and compliant, which is where we can help you.
Here at m-hance we work with charities of all sizes, helping them to find the right Microsoft solutions for their organisation. Because we’ve worked closely with the sector for almost 20 years, we really understand the challenges you face and how technology can help you overcome them. For smaller charities, the first step to digital transformation is always the hardest, so we’ve stripped our solutions right back to help with this seemingly overwhelming challenge, to make it as straightforward as possible for you.
If you are using personal emails within your charitable organisation, this can present a whole host of security, compliance and governance issues. We have therefore put together a package which will help you to move onto Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365) in just one day. This means that you can bring together all your colleagues/volunteers, etc onto the same secure system.
Microsoft 365 is so much more than the suite of Word, Excel and PowerPoint tools that we are all familiar with, its an entire collection of cloud-based apps, all specifically designed to improve your charity’s productivity and collaboration.
Our “Cloud in a Day” packages start at £950 depending on whether you want to migrate your existing email accounts over to Microsoft 365 or start afresh. This cost covers the services required to set up your Microsoft 365 tenant (which is the instance for your organisation). On top of this, as a charity you will also be entitled to 10 free Microsoft 365 Business Premium licences, courtesy of Microsoft and the grant they have set up specifically to support charities (please visit the Microsoft website for terms and conditions).
Once you’ve taken that first step into the cloud with Microsoft 365, you can then continue your digital transformation journey with our fundraising and donor management CRM solution – NfP 365 Accelerator, where you can:
So now you are set up on Microsoft 365, you are in a great position to consider the best option for moving your charity finances to a cloud-based system, which is where our NfP 365 Finance packages can really help.
As a Not-for-Profit organisation, it is critical to keep up to date with new accounting legislation. Many smaller charities are questioning whether to continue to use third parties to manage and record their financial transactions or to adopt a simple finance system of their own. Generic finance implementations can be too costly for smaller charities who have a low number of users, therefore it is essential for any solution to be affordable, quick to implement, have a full reporting output which is SORP compliant and also have all associated training materials readily available for the general user. This is where our NfP 365 Finance packages could be the perfect answer.
Our NfP 365 Finance packages are built on the framework of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and tailored to the unique needs of the charity sector. They have been developed to help you with all your financial needs so your organisation can focus on growing and delivering your mission, safe in the knowledge that your finance solution will grow with you. You can reap all the rewards and benefits that having a Microsoft-based solution brings at an affordable cost.
Are you interested in moving to the cloud?
By moving your charity into the cloud, you will have taken the first and most important step in your charity’s technological transformation. Once you are up and running with Microsoft 365 you are then ready to start thinking about step 2 or step 3 of your journey – i.e. bringing your supporter database and/or charity finance processes onto affordable systems built on Microsoft Dynamics 365.
