Technology Challenges for Associations and Nonprofits

 Seeking an affordable IT service, this nonprofit organization reached out to Centre's partners to update their aged IT environment. There concern was enacting a smooth technological transition that wouldn't jeaporadize their current data or stagnate their productivity. After explaining the process, they felt confident about enacting cloud computing with Centre. 

"One of the reasons was affordability. The second reason was that it was a local company so we could have immediate access to personnel to address any local issues. The third was the redundancy [Centre partners] have overlapping service around the country. That provided a great sense of comfort knowing that, if there was a problem at the San Antonio location, the information we needed was being saved at other locations around the country."
