Invest in lower costs and enhanced capabilities
When the pressure is on to dedicate every last penny to the core mission, it’s all too easy to under-invest in technology. This is a cross-industry issue, even when studies have shown a 12-fold return on IT investment.
Industry surveys consistently put the Charity and Not-For-Profit sector at the bottom of the pile when it comes to technology investment. However, under-spending on IT is a false economy. By making smart investments, you can not only save time, boost productivity and reduce costs, but also gain new capabilities and increase your visibility to donors.
92% of digitally focused charities expect to increase their measurable impact due to investment in technology, not only through enhanced productivity but also by increasing incoming donations. For example, digital projects at Age UK delivered a 50% uplift in volunteers and a 16% rise in unique visitors to the website.
With long experience of selecting, deploying and supporting IT solutions for all sectors, Northdoor can advise you on every step of your digital journey. We can help you choose solutions that transform your capabilities and deliver a rapid return on your investment. Our solutions focus on helping your teams to be more productive and more effective, saving time and money but also unlocking innovative ways to execute your core mission.
