Four Reasons Why Nonprofits Need Managed IT Services

There are 1.5 million nonprofits in the US that perform critical mission-driven work. These organizations are responsible for supporting their missions on tight budgets, which can be difficult when they are notoriously understaffed and forced to wear many different hats. From accounting to marketing to communications, nonprofit teams have enough on their plates without worrying about IT. Nonprofit organizations need their IT to work so they can better support their mission, and it’s often easier to work with a managed services provider than do it all yourself in-house. Here are four ways managed IT services can allow nonprofits to stay focused on their mission and work.

1. Managed IT Services Fill a Resource Gap

Nonprofits typically aren’t flush with money, so operating on slim margins is common. Unfortunately, IT is one of the first departments to fall by the wayside when there is no internal team. Managed services can augment the internal department, providing expert IT services when nonprofits lack the bandwidth or resources to do it in-house. Additionally, nonprofits don’t have to hire people with a specific skillset needed to run their IT. A managed services provider can address a skills gap and any turnover issues you may be experiencing.

2. Managed IT Services Strengthen Cybersecurity

With American donors giving roughly $484.85 billion dollars a year to nonprofits, these organizations receive and store significant amounts of sensitive donor and financial data. It’s critical that this information be kept secure. Data can easily fall into the wrong hands thanks to ransomware attacks and phishing schemes. Nonprofits need to be proactive when it comes to protecting their infrastructure from cyberattacks, but it’s expensive for nonprofits to keep cybersecurity specialists on staff full-time. An experienced managed services team provides nonprofits with the services they need to keep their organization secure. From monitoring and detecting threats in your infrastructure to installing the latest security patches, a managed services provider can provide 24/7/365 oversight of your infrastructure.

3. Managed IT Services Are Cost Effective

Maintaining hardware, software, applications, and staff for an in-house IT department adds up extremely quickly. By outsourcing or augmenting your existing team to an expert-managed IT provider who acts like a true partner, your business can tap into IT at scale. Managed IT services can be more affordable and help you stay on top of the latest trends and updates without the burden of managing everything in-house or incurring large capital expenditures. This cost stays predictable and within budget.

4. Managed IT Services Provide Peace of Mind

Keeping IT running, improving cybersecurity, minimizing downtime, installing updates, and navigating new regulations can be a lot to keep up with – especially you’re your job is to support your mission. If anything is missed, it can be a massive failure for your nonprofit organization. A managed services provider offers peace of mind with 24/7/365 access to support and proven experts — so you don’t have to worry about your employees having to try handle it all.
