Data is a powerful tool, but only when collected, saved, stored, and utilized properly.
Whether that’s donor data being entered into your CRM or ERP system, or properly managing sorting, and and filing important files for easy access. Data is how our nonprofits run in the the 21st century enterprise, and it’s imperative that your nonprofit is up on how exactly it can be more effectively utilized.
You’ve undoubtedly heard the term “data services” before, but without fully understanding what it means, much of the rhetoric surrounding the term can be difficult, or downright impossible, to understand.
You and your colleagues certainly understand the impact your organization has on the communities and constituents you serve. Data services, in a nut shell, help nonprofits share their impact, increase funding opportunities, and improve and streamline business operations.
When you think of optimizing your nonprofit's IT infrastructure, outsourcing your primary business functions to a managed services provider (MSP) doesn't always immediately come to mind. You need to spend time, money, and energy looking for the firm that provides all the services you need and all that work can detract from your capacity to complete your nonprofit’s mission.
