IT Support for Not For Profit

Qbit are specialists in working with the not for profit sector. Our aim is to support, simplify and streamline IT systems in a way that enables NFP’s to run efficiently, securely and on budget. We like our NFP’s to let us pay attention to their IT, so they can focus their attention on the outstanding work they do for the community.

Infrastructure Measured

Qbit commences its engagement process by conducting a comprehensive IT business audit and business technology review. The review provides a benchmark against which existing infrastructure can be measured, as well as providing an analysis of your business goals and the technologies that will support them. 

The review also addresses issues at an operational level, as well as strategic technology recommendations that are ITIL compliant and support your business objectives.

As part of our not for profit IT support, we use an advanced network detection software, which enables Qbit to generate a number of reports, graphs and statistics about your network’s current state. This allows Qbit to provide NFP’s with evidence-based data, in an easy to understand format. 

This data is prepared along with the relevant recommendations, for direct presentation to your board and funding providers. Thus minimising the workload and simplifying the approval process for not for profit Directors and Managers.

Data includes:
  • Network & Security risk scores and graphs
  • Network & Security issues and recommendations
  • Network & Security policy assessments and recommendations
  • Security and operating system patch status
  • Active & inactive user status, and permissions matrix
  • Endpoint security analysis
  • Backup analysis

We have recently been reviewing how we work given all the changes that COVID-19 has created in our working patterns. We decided to seek two quotes for our IT support and we were impressed by how much time and thought went into the quote and the conversations we had to talk about our needs. John gave us all the time we needed to ask our questions. It’s been the smoothest changeover and we are looking forward to a long productive working relationship.
