SoftwareONE collaborates with Microsoft to accelerate digital transformation for Nonprofit Organizations worldwide
Stans, Switzerland I 23 April 2021 - SoftwareONE Holding AG, a leading global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, today announced it will collaborate with Microsoft Tech for Social Impact to accelerate the digital transformation of Nonprofit Organizations (NPOs) globally. This collaboration represents a commitment to jointly enable NPOs to deploy leading-edge, innovative technology to have a greater impact on the world's most critical social issues.
SoftwareONE's global dedicated ONEImpact team offers digitalization and transformation solutions to enable its +3,000 non-profit customers to adapt to an increasingly digital world. ONEImpact makes it easy for NPOs to access Microsoft enterprise-grade technology at low or no-entry costs, while offering a wide variety of services, advice and support to NPO IT teams who are typically understaffed and overstretched.
Microsoft Tech for Social Impact is committed to building technology solutions for the nonprofit sector and offering affordable and accessible tools to help NPOs of all sizes accomplish their missions. This ranges from donations, grants and discounts of Microsoft products and services to eligible NPOs globally, including cloud solutions such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, and PowerApps, as well as tailor-made solutions for NPOs.
According to a digital NPO member survey by NetHope, many NPOs lack a comprehensive digital transformation strategy and struggle to envision, design and deploy technology to optimize their missions. The alignment of SoftwareONE's ONEImpact team to the sector and collaboration with Microsoft's Tech for Social Impact team represents a commitment to provide solutions that can help solve the technology challenges for NPOs.
For example, Helen Keller International provides life-changing healthcare in remote places. When Covid-19 struck, the organization needed a reliable, simple and secure way for workers around the world to sign on, collaborate and communicate regardless of location. SoftwareONE helped the Helen Keller team to develop an Azure Identity Management strategy to better manage its future workplace environment using Microsoft 365, while reducing its costs and management time. Helen Keller staff can now better focus on delivering care to vulnerable families.
"SoftwareONE's mission is to empower organizations to transform. This transformation is critical in the non-profit sector where the use of technology to raise funds, the improvement of productivity and the acceleration of innovation has a genuine impact on the lives of others. By combining our solutions and services delivery with Microsoft's technology, we believe we can have a greater impact on the world's most pressing issues," said Dieter Schlosser, CEO of SoftwareONE.
"Today more than ever, the nonprofit sector has proven critical for civil society serving as the backstop in this time of unprecedented need for nonprofit services. Together with SoftwareONE we are committed to meeting NPOs where they are, delivering the innovative and affordable solutions that allow them to tackle the world's biggest challenges by combining Microsoft's industry leading commercial products with SoftwareONE's best in class solutions and services," said Justin Spelhaug, Vice President, Head of Tech for Social Impact, Microsoft Philanthropies at Microsoft Corp.
