10 Reasons Why Your Charity Needs a Hosted Desktop

While every organisation wants to save money where they can, charities and not for profit organisations have a more critical job of being cost-efficient. To help their chosen cause as much as possible and truly make a difference, charities need to reduce their admin costs so that they can use more of the budget for charitable work.

One way to reduce administration costs is through IT. A hosted desktop solution can reduce IT costs for servers, set-up and support. With a cost-effective and manageable monthly payment, charities can better budget their income for their worthy cause.

It is not just a lower cost that makes a hosted desktop an idea solution for charities and not for profits. Here are ten more reasons why a hosted desktop is perfect for charities…

1. Software: Hosted desktops reduce the cost of software with no upfront licence costs. Furthermore, software providers will usually lower their software costs for charitable organisations too.

3. Data Security: With strict data security and ISO 27001 in place, you can trust that your data is safe.

5. Productivity: Working on any device, staff can get more work completed without needing to be in the office.

7. Energy Costs: Save on energy with no requirement for an energy-guzzling server.

9. Back-up: Your data and applications have back-up and can be retrieved if anything goes wrong.

2. Monthly Fee: Plan your budget carefully and tender for short-term contracts with ease without associated IT costs.

4. GDPR: Charities must comply with the GDPR, hosted desktops make it easier to store and manage data in one single place.

6. Overseas access: If staff are on assignments elsewhere in the world, they can still report back to the business securely with access to the internet.

8. Green: Support your green credentials with lower power consumption and energy use.

10. Volunteers: Volunteers can help with ease by using their own devices and supporting the charities by working at home or out at locations.
