The Evolving Digital Nonprofit Technology Landscape

Last month, Forbes posted an article titled “Why Enterprise Software Will Be Forever Changed.” Within the article, software executives commented on the future of technology. One of these executives, Adam Mansfield, the Practice Leader at UpperEdge, highlights Microsoft:

When it comes to the goal of achieving the most optimal digital workforce, Microsoft is going to benefit the most. They have long standing relationships in place, often at the top of these enterprises (CEO, CFO), and their portfolio of solutions can be geared towards enabling a truly optimized digital workforce. Microsoft is the most expansive, providing the productivity solutions (Office 365), the collaboration functionality (Teams) and a cloud platform solution (Azure).”

What does it mean to be an “optimal digital workforce?”

As the future of the workplace evolves, professionals need the flexibility to work from anywhere, anytime. Cloud-based technology such as StratusLIVE 365 provides this flexibility, so nonprofit professionals have secure access to their business applications whenever, wherever. This ensures business continuity.

In addition to seamlessly accessing your CRM solution, it’s important that nonprofit professionals gain efficiencies and work collaboratively with colleagues. The Microsoft platform allows users to work efficiently through the use of Microsoft 365. With Teams, users can share files, chat, and video conference with colleagues. This all-in-one solution allows fundraisers to work effectively both in their individual roles and collectively as an organization.

StratusLIVE believes nonprofit organizations deserve access to the same enterprise-level technology as the Fortune 1000; that’s why StratusLIVE developed StratusLIVE 365 on the Microsoft Dynamics platform. Not only does our platform harness the power of Microsoft, it’s adapted to meet the unique needs of nonprofits with data-centric visibility.   

However, don't just take our word for it. TechSoup recently released a list of their favorite cloud technologies for nonprofits. They recognize cloud-based technology as “a good investment for years to come in terms of flexibility, security, and the ease with which they can be used remotely." Additionally, they tout Microsoft's productivity apps, communication, and collaboration tools. 

As mission-driven work increases in importance throughout the globe, leveraging the power of integrated, donor-focused technology is critical. Let us know how StratusLIVE can support your work in transforming into an “optimal digital workforce.”
