Microsoft’s cloud solution now available to UK charities

Charity Tech Trust (CTT) has announced that Microsoft’s cloud solution, Office 365 for NonProfits, is now available free to UK charities of any size.

Created especially for the not-for-profit sector, the software simplifies charities’ IT offerings. The solution helps to boost productivity by ensuring charities have access to the most recent software.

Staff will be able to access their Office applications, documents, email and calendars from any location, helping to support a mobile and remote workforce. The software also supports online video-conferencing, saving on travel costs and phone bills.

Richard Craig, CEO of CTT, said: “The cloud has long held promise for the charity sector, as it supports the remote and flexible working practices that are so vital for charities and not for profit organisations to operate. We are excited to see Office 365 made available to charities, making it easier than ever for them to take advantage of all the cloud has to offer.”
