npCloud: Affordable Technology

npcloud-by-techimpact-5Technology plays an important role for non-profits. Yet, replacing old outdated technology isn't always possible for non-profits. In an effort to change that npCloud, a service of Tech Impact, offers non-profits a way to have current technology at affordable prices.

npCloud offers npBase, npOffice, npTalk, and npVault. npBase gives non-profits access to virtual servers and desktops for a flat monthly fee. npCloud works with them to determine their needs and then helps them connected to the cloud. It doesn't matter what technology the non-profit is currently using, desktops (even old ones), iPads or thin clients all are compatible with npCloud.

With npBase the non-profit gets access to a virtual desktop, that runs Windows 7 with Office 2010. The application is customizable and it is possible to install other software just like a regular desktop. Also included are file sharing and Microsoft Exchange.

For non-profits looking to upgrade their email and calendar functions npCloud has npOffice, which is built on Microsoft's Office 365 solution. It includes eMail, Word, Excel and Powerpoint along with a shared calendar feature.

Nonprofits looking to upgrade their PBX phone system can connect to npTalk, which offers extension forwarding to cell phones, emailed voice mail messages, the ability to take the office phone anywhere and several other key features.

The npVault is a secure, reliable online, off-site data backup solution for non-profits. npVault staff monitors backups.

Pricing for npCloud and its various components are based on size of the organization and the components being used. Smaller organizations can get started with minimal configurations to get their operations up to speed, then add capabilities as needed. This may be a prime option for small nonprofits trying to get involved in cloud based operations without having to make large commitments to infrastructure.
