Get your Nonprofit Ready for Tech Challenges in 2016


From Biz Tech Magazine

Technology is rapidly changing. It is hard for growing non-profits to keep up with the current trends. Biz Tech Magazine recently featured a great article reviewing trends and opportunities for the non-profit sector this year – The Top Technology Trends Confronting Nonprofits in 2016.

Whether you are a new or an established non-profit organization, it is important for you to consider these items when planning out your budget for your digital communications:

  1. Security – Does your organization have a strong password policy? How secure are your online sales/donation tools? Then there are issues that may lurk a little deeper. Do former employees still have access to your systems? Is the support system for your software sufficient in case of a breach?
  2. Mobile Optimization –If your website is not optimized for mobile devices, you risk losing business or donors. We reviewed this topic earlier on our blog.
  3. Data Usage – There are more ways than ever to collect data and while this is a benefit, it’s often hard to truly make the best use of all the information you receive. For more information please review our previous blog on integrating your marketing plan.
  4. Cloud Integration – Cloud services are increasingly ubiquitous from accounting to data management. These services can both aid in organization and reduce overhead. Have you looked into what services might benefit you?
