At Atlas Cloud we’re experts at providing hosted services to organisations in the charity and not-for-profit sector. We work closely with them to get maximum IT performance without breaking the bank.
We understand that all charities need to keep their administrative costs to a minimum so they can focus as much money as possible on their charitable efforts. Many still require the same level of IT as other businesses but don’t have the budget. Fortunately, our cloud-based solutions can help charities get more for their money. Firstly, we are able to help with reduced licencing costs as many suppliers offer huge discounts for charities e.g. Microsoft Office 365 licences.
Secondly our Hosted Desktop service is the perfect way to get first-rate IT for less. As the hosted desktop is hosted in one of our UK based data centres all you need is an internet connection and you’ll get fast performance from a familiar Windows environment. This means you’ll get many more years out of your existing hardware and when you come to replace computers you can buy cheap thin-client devices which also use a lot less electricity. Also Hosted Desktops are ideal for Bring Your Own Device schemes with volunteers able to use their own devices (nothing is stored locally on their device so it’s all very secure). It also lets them work from home more easily, which is great if you don’t have the space in the office or don’t have the budget for more desks or PCs.
Not-for-profit organisations can also benefit from simple pay-monthly contracts which can be scaled up and down as needed. Our Managed Service customers get access to our award winning Support team. With many charities unable to afford expensive on-site servers or dedicated in-house IT resource, switching to our cloud hosted solutions allow them to have a productive IT setup without breaking the bank.
