Cloud Communications is YOUR Solution.
Find out how your organization can become better connected and experience rapid growth.
The purpose of any nonprofit organization is to conduct business in a way that serves the general public; whether it be health, culture, aid, awareness, advocating for a great cause, bringing peace, etc. The sole purpose of a nonprofit organization is to benefit the world around them. As the driving force behind most charitable programs and culturally beneficial initiatives, nonprofit organizations posses a great deal of societal responsibility. While it is clear nonprofits are at the core of goodwill, it is also very clear that nonprofits struggle with regards to technological progress and advancement for many reasons.
It is necessary for a nonprofit organization to operate with the same resources as a large enterprise in order to achieve the same results – only nonprofit progress directly correlates with the sustainability of our society and cultural relativism. While in a perfect world this would be easy for nonprofits, organizations face many bottlenecks when choosing the right technology to match the needs of their mission.
There is a way. There is a solution that is transforming nonprofit organizations into connected communities and helping them survive and thrive.
4 Reasons How Cloud Communications Helps Nonprofits Flourish
1. Cost savings – When Unifying Communications in the cloud, nonprofits no longer need to pay monthly expenses to several different vendors. Fax, e-mail, conferencing, phone, video and all the advanced features are all unified under one vendor; lowering monthly expenses for the nonprofit. Additionally, nonprofits avoid large initial investment requirements when switching to the cloud, as well as eliminating maintenance and the technical management costs of a legacy phone system.
2. Advanced but simple to use features – Nonprofit organizations need to focus more on their mission. Cloud Communication’s advanced features including an “auto attendant” that eliminates the need for a receptionist, “mobile-twinning” that allows volunteers and employees to maintain response time by twinning their cell phone to ring simultaneously with their desk phone, and “hot-desking” which allows employees and volunteers to be issued a pin code to use any phone in the office, are just the cloud’s foundation for empowering an organization.
3. Green technology – Aside from primary cost savings, cloud communications is cost effective for nonprofits through it’s peripheral savings. Features such as “fax-to-email” which enables organizations to eliminate fax machines entirely, reduce paper expenses and organize all fax in their e-mail of choice, not only lowers operating expenses but also reduces the organization’s carbon footprint. Moreover, with cloud communications, less tangible equipment is necessary to operate a fully functional, feature-rich telecommunications system. Less raw material is needed to empower communications and collaboration in the cloud, therefore reducing the organization’s landfill contribution and promoting a healthier environment. Additionally, due to cloud communications “mobile workforce” capabilities, employees and volunteers can work from anywhere in the world with the same connectivity as in the office. This helps reduce air pollution by allowing workers to work from home rather than commuting to and from the office daily.
