Why Should Non-Profits Outsource IT?

Changing the world for the better is your business. Managing technology is not.

Your passion is limitless, but your IT resources may not be. Equip your nonprofit with cutting-edge technology tools and training without busting your budget. From 24/7 network monitoring to help desk and IT project management, Eaton & Associates is here to help you take your mission to the next level.

It’s crucial that your network, computers and systems are in good standing, always.

Non-profits have a great opportunity to leverage technologies like cloud storage and project collaboration to increase the number of clients you can serve, and improve the quality of services you provide. Similarly, handing off technical processes like monitoring and maintaining your network to a trusted IT partner can help you reduce your operating costs, and the cost of services you pass onward.

Outsourcing part, or all, of your organization’s technology management and support to an experienced, well-trained team – called IT “Managed Services” – is increasingly popular among non-profits. Managed Services brings technology expertise and experience to your organization, ensuring you can stay laser-focused on meeting the needs of your customers and delivering on the promise of your non-profit.

Why should non-profits partner with an IT firm?

  • Your team is growing.

    New people, computers and office locations require more IT support.

  • IT infrastructure is difficult to manage.

    As your technology needs grow, they become increasingly time consuming and complex to manage.

  • Your IT Department is maxed out.

    Your IT Department (i.e., the most technically-adept person in the room) is maxed out.

  • Business continuity planning calls for secure and reliable backup management.

    Your data store is growing and requires better storage, retention, and business continuity policies (e.g., a solid backup and restore plan).

It is important to understand your business goals to maximize the value of your relationship with your Managed Services Provider (MSP). If any of these examples hits home, it makes sense to consider moving to a MSP. There are additional benefits in working with a LOCAL provider like Eaton & Associates, such as our abilities to warehouse and hand-deliver your equipment, as desired. Being local, we’re also able to visit your office if an issue calls for it. Give us a call and we’re happy to expand on the benefits of doing business with a local partner.
