CTT provides new Office to charities
1 February 2013
Charities can now access the latest Microsoft Office suite through Charity Technology Trust’s (CTT) charity technology donation programme.
Eligible charities and not-for-profit organisations that are registered to the programme can now obtain the new Office Standard and Professional editions at a discounted rate.
Having access to the most up-to-date software helps charities to run at optimal efficiency
Charity Technology Trust Charities with remote workers or staff that travel frequently can benefit from Office 2013’s integration with the cloud.
Its direct link to online storage drive, SkyDrive, allows users to sync their documents and work across several devices, saving it as they go.
This means they can start a document on their desktop and pick up where they left off on a tablet without any disruption. Microsoft’s Office 365 web apps will also allow staff and volunteers create, edit, and share documents online.
“Having access to the most up-to-date software helps charities to run at optimal efficiency,” said Richard Craig of CTT. “Our partnerships with companies like Microsoft mean we can offer eligible members of our CTXchange programme the advantages that access to the latest technology brings.”
Eligible organisations are still able to request donated upgrades of Windows 8 Professional and Windows 8 Enterprise through CTXchange, which have been available since October 2012.
