Helping non-profits help those in need.
A nonprofit organization needs to carefully manage its information technology (IT) as much as any for-profit business. After all, both types of organizations must leverage technology in order to achieve their stated vision, mission, goals, and objectives.
Many charitable organizations, while rightly putting their focus and attention into those they serve, don’t pay enough attention to IT strategy and the critical role it plays in their ongoing success.
Outsourcing technology management to an IT managed services provider with experience serving non-profits can be the key required to unlock new levels of mission-driven achievement.
We’re proud to help organizations thrive, and we’d love to tell you more.

Passion for Technology in Service to People and Organizations
We’ve always been passionate about technology because when managed strategically and thoughtfully, aligned with organizational goals, it is a powerful catalyst for achieving a nonprofit organization’s mission and vision for its stakeholders. An IT solution that includes a Managed Services Provider such as Resultant means bringing all the benefits of our technology services to your organization, making the difference between status quo and success.
With Resultant as your IT Managed Services Partner (IT-MSP), your organization will receive day-to-day operational support in the form of an IT helpdesk to address technology concerns and issues so you can stay focused on your organization’s mission-driven work without interruptions from technology problems. Perhaps even more importantly, you’ll also receive proactive big-picture technology management guidance on IT strategy to meet future needs. Below you’ll find some of the most common elements of an IT managed service solution developed by Resultant to support nonprofits.
An ever-growing number of nonprofit organizations are interested in the many cloud services available in the digital era of the twenty-first century, and for good reason. It’s one of the fastest and most effective ways to move away old technologies no longer meeting your needs while gaining access to powerful applications you would otherwise not be able to afford as standalone on-premises solutions. Resultant can offer a nonprofit organization the following types of guidance on cloud solutions:
Cloud Readiness Assessment: The first step in the process is assessing the level of cloud readiness at your organization. We’ll carefully examine your current technologies and processes relative to your goals to see if a migration to the cloud is right for your organization.
Platform Choice: Resultant is unique in that our team has expertise across all the most powerful cloud platforms, including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services. If we think one platform is better suited to your organization than another, we can make that recommendation to you.
Cloud Migration: Making the move into the cloud can easily become messy and complicated. The expertise of our team is ready to make the migration a seamless transition into a whole new world of technological capacity at your organization and for all your staff.
Network security must be top-of-mind for nonprofit organizations as it is among for-profit businesses. Whether your charitable organization facilitates disaster relief, is researching cures for persistent diseases, or provides human services to people in need, there are all kinds of data you want to protect from the theft and abuse perpetrated by cyber criminals. Research data, donor data, client data—it should come as no surprise that nonprofits are tuning in to data security concerns like never before to prevent threats from becoming crises. All your IT resources need adequate protection. We’re experts at making that happen.
IT departments in robust businesses with plenty of resources can handle much of the IT needs relating to network infrastructure, network management, server maintenance, and intranet development. Most nonprofit organizations don’t have full-blown IT departments to do this for them, which is when an IT Managed Services Partner such as Resultant can be invaluable. The following aspects fall under this broad category of on-premises technology consulting:
Identity Management: Creating, managing, and protecting employee digital IDs.
Data Center Design: We’ll help you modify, enhance, or overhaul your server infrastructure to ensure you have the data center your organization needs, presenting you with a range of options to fit your needs and your budget.
Virtualization: Server infrastructure issues may be best resolved through this innovative combination of software and hardware engineering to use your servers in new ways.
Backup Solutions: This is one area where you want to be 100% sure everything is being properly backed up often enough and securely stored in the event a restoration is needed.
Email Management: Still a primary channel for communication in any nonprofit organization, we’ll make sure your platform operates at peak performance, integrating multiple email solutions when needed.
Connectivity Planning: Your network infrastructure needs to give the right people access to what they need when they need it, and that means planning for a variety of scenarios that could interrupt connectivity.
