Nonprofit organizations have unique technology requirements related to membership management and fundraising. The core challenges that many face concern portability, accessibility, and affordability. However, with secure and reliable technology infrastructures, many are overcoming these challenges. Plus, with tech companies like Microsoft, providing either no or low-cost solutions like their Microsoft Office 365, nonprofits are now embracing technology more than ever.
Although your nonprofit functions like many businesses, your operations are different, and, because of this, you have different technology requirements. You face unique business challenges. But, just like other businesses, you can realize your goals and better serve your members and community with the right, cost-effective IT solutions. To do this, you need an IT Partner who simply understands your requirements and can provide for them.

You’ll benefit from cost-effective IT solutions that are customized to meet your unique needs. We’ll assess your current IT system and conduct interviews with your staff to determine what you need to accomplish your mission. Then we’ll work to detect any deficiencies in your network that are impeding positive outcomes, efficiency, productivity, and security. We can also procure software and hardware to improve your business functions at a more reasonable cost than you can on your own.
You’ll benefit from data protection and secure access to your IT assets. With our secure cloud solutions, you and your employees can safeguard your data and access it from anywhere you are via the Internet. Plus, your data, both in transit and in storage will be secure.

When you outsource your IT services to us, you’ll have 24/7 access to our help-desk attendants who will quickly forward your problem to professionals who are trained in the software and hardware that you use. No more waiting for a tech to come to your office. In many instances, our tech engineers can resolve your issues remotely. If not, your ticket will be escalated, and someone will visit your office to get you up and running again.
You’ll benefit from expert IT advice for nonprofits. Most nonprofits need proper IT guidance. It’s been proven that the nonprofits that leverage technology in a smart and strategic way reap the benefits to further their missions and reach their long-term goals.

Have You Transitioned to the Cloud? With cloud computing, your nonprofit will benefit from enhanced productivity and data security. Cloud computing provides the following benefits:
As a nonprofit organization, your primary goal is to serve your members and/or community. If you manage large databases with membership data, this typically requires expensive servers and storage technology. When you use the Cloud, you can house your data remotely, securely and cost-effectively. Plus, you can reduce the amount of computer hardware you need, which also leads to a reduction of electricity, licensing, and hardware maintenance costs. With cloud computing, you’ll have access to the most recent technology capabilities for a small, user-based monthly fee.
Cloud computing lets you access your databases and other information securely from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection. Your employees may work from a non-centrally located area. With cloud computing, you don’t need to set up VPNs (virtual private networks) to allow remote access to your servers. Designated employees and volunteers can access your data from anywhere.
When your nonprofit organization works with outdated or inadequate hardware, it takes more time to access the files and programs needed to run your organization. Plus, this increases the chance of program or computer crashes. You’ll have less time to focus on your mission and spend more time on IT issues. However, when you choose to store your data in the Cloud, and you use cloud-computing services, you can free up your time and work more efficiently with access to your data at all times.
The Tektonic team members are experts in migrating nonprofit organizations to the Cloud. This isn’t something you should do on your own. To do this properly requires knowledge and expertise.
Take advantage of the benefits you’ll receive when using our managed services and support. When you do, you’ll be able to achieve your mission and realize your vision in a cost-effective, efficient and secure manner.
