20th May 2021, London, UK, Smartdesc, a leading charity IT specialist, is proud to announce they are now Microsoft Gold Partners.
This is the highest tier of the Microsoft partnership, and is testament to their breadth and depth of skills and qualifications earned through supporting so many charities and non-profits imagine, design and move to the Microsoft cloud, including 365, Teams and Azure.
The partnership goes hand in hand with the work that Smartdesc undertakes in the non-profit sector along with the work that the Microsoft Tech for Social Impact team carry out, whose mission is to ensure non-profits gain access to free and heavily discounted software, which can transform their operations.
James Field, Customer Strategy Director, Smartdesc said; “Reaching Gold Partner status comes off the back of an incredibly busy 18 months helping so many charities either migrate to, or optimize and drive adoption of Microsoft technologies like Teams and SharePoint. We recently shared some knowledge and insight about ways to optimise your IT around Microsoft 365, and the platform is an incredibly powerful and cost effective way for non-profits to optimise their ICT around remote working; removing the need for servers and VPN connections, allowing staff to have the same IT experience at home, in the office, on a personal device or a mobile. Features such as Autopilot, Intune and Teams move cyber security to the cloud, allow organisation’s complete flexibility to work anywhere and scale up and down, as well as providing a platform to integrate your other applications to.”
Microsoft Gold Partner status means that as an organisation, Smartdesc has direct access to the highest level of partnership at Microsoft. This includes solution architects, Teams specialists, automation and integration consultants and more. All of this knowledge can then be shared with their non-profit customers and network.
Smartdesc is an ACEVO Premium Partner, NCVO Trusted IT Supplier and a Charity Finance Group Partner.
Non-profits can book a Complimentary Technology Consultation to discuss how to optimise IT and reduce operating costs.
