Embracing the constant technological advances for your charity can also welcome new ideas from your supporters. It is expected that any charity’s role in the coming years will be to channel those ideas from supporters to help make a bigger difference in the causes you care about.
How VoIP phone systems can benefit charities
With technology growing rapidly, embracing new technological advances can help make a big difference to your charity. This can range from holding conference calls through VoIP solutions or video conferencing to keeping your social following up-to-date via social media; it can all add a significant advantage to your charity.
The population is adapting to new technological advances daily, and it’s no surprise that they expect charities to do this as well! With many of the world’s population using online banking, job searching on the internet or browsing the world wide web, many people expect donating to charity to be quick and easy.
Is your digital transformation mobile-first?
The use of mobile phones can significantly add value to your charity, allowing you to take videos and pictures to tell your story. Video conferencing via web applications is becoming all the more important when managing multi-sites; however; ensuring you have stable connectivity is vitally important, whilst also making it cheap and easy.
