LAN Infotech GIFT Program
Your nonprofit faces unique challenges and a major one is funding. You can’t afford to waste money on technology that doesn’t work for you or that crashes when you need it most. With Managed IT Services, you’ll have the cost-effective technology solutions you need to achieve your mission. And with LAN Infotech’s GIFT Program you can find the grants that you’re missing out on.
What Is The Right Technology For Nonprofits?
Managed IT Services
You need to use technology in a cost-conscious way. And you need effective, productivity-boosting IT solutions so you’ll have the reliable and secure running technology you need to achieve your mission. Managed IT Services are an affordable, cost-effective solution. They’re available for a fixed monthly fee that you can easily budget for.
What Are Managed IT Services?
Your Managed Service Provider (MSP) will provide comprehensive server and computer management services that proactively update, manage and backup your information technology. When issues crop up, they can be resolved remotely before they cause interruptions or downtime.
When you subscribe to Managed IT Services, you’ll have access to enterprise-class technology without buying, configuring or maintaining it yourself. Some of the services you’ll benefit from include:
- Setup of network infrastructures, Internet, firewalls, wireless, phones, antivirus, backups and more.
- Unlimited support for computer hardware.
- A Helpdesk staffed by IT professionals.
- Automatic data backup and disaster recovery services.
- Automated patch management and system optimization.
- 24/7 Remote Monitoring and Management of your network and systems.
- IT asset inventory and license management.
- Cybersecurity and compliance services.
- Web content filtering and threat protection.
- Mobile Device Management for BYOD devices.
- Email service and encryption.
What Are The Benefits Of Managed Services?
Fewer Technology Expenses:
Many nonprofit organizations experience a reduction in IT costs when they use Managed Services. Not only because they pay a fixed, monthly fee, but because they experience less downtime and IT interruptions. When your staff can’t work, that’s money out the window– and money that you can’t afford to lose.
Hackers and malware viruses are growing at an alarming rate, victimizing businesses and nonprofits like yours. You can’t afford a data breach. If your members’ confidential information is exposed, you may end up in expensive litigation, not to mention a reputation that’s ruined. No one will want to fund your projects. Take advantage of what managed services provide–the IT security you need.
Data Backup & Recovery:
Designing a data strategy takes knowledge and experience. It all starts with identifying the data to back up and implementing hardware and software backup procedures. You must schedule and perform backups both onsite and in a secure cloud-based solution. This way if your hardware is destroyed, your data will be accessible over the Internet. A good backup and recovery plan includes periodic validating that your data has been accurately backed up and is quickly recoverable. Your Managed Service Provider will assure this.
24/7 Support & Fast Response Times:
With managed services, you’ll benefit from remote management and monitoring (RMM) of your IT system that can respond to issues in minutes rather than hours (or even days). In many instances, IT problems can be repaired remotely before you know anything has happened.
Peace of Mind:
You’ll know that your nonprofit’s IT assets are protected and up-to-date. Everything will be provided for, so you and your staff can focus on your core responsibilities. With the support of a highly trained IT team, you won’t have to worry about your technology so you can focus on your mission.
