How Nonprofits Can Stay Connected With Remote Workers


Nonprofit organizations often rely on the support of employees, volunteers and others that work from remote locations. Staying connected to people and key data is difficult and time-consuming when relying on manual methods and outdated software. Strengthen communication and collaboration by replacing outdated software with a modern cloud-based management system.


What happens when your employees or the other supporters of your nonprofit organization spend more time out of the office than in it? For those organizations that rely on outdated systems or specialty software, chances are good that remote workers aren’t able to access or easily share important information. Reduced communication and collaboration often results in wasted time and resources, as well as delays that quickly lead to bigger problems. As a result, more nonprofit chief financial officers (CFOs) are investigating cloud-based systems. As indicated in “21 Questions Every Nonprofit CFO Must Ask When Evaluating Cloud Financial Management Solutions,” an eBook, a cloud-based financial management solution supports mobility and provides added functionality, both of which encourage greater teamwork and improve productivity.


Improve Communication and Collaboration with Cloud-Based Management Systems

A cloud-based financial management solution offers workers easy access to key data from any location, at any time, through a web browser on a computer or mobile device. While meeting with members or other supporting businesses, your employees are able to enter or access data on the spot. Grant writers working remotely can access the data needed to complete a thorough, accurate grant application. Cloud solutions also offer seamless integration with other important business applications, either on-premises or in the cloud. As needs evolve or change, your cloud provider can add other features and functionality to improve the performance or security measures within your system. Focus on improving processes and productivity by optimizing management systems and making it easier for your employees and supporters to enter, access and analyze key information.


Staying connecting to your people and data is challenging when relying on outdated software or legacy systems. Deploy a cloud-based solution and your team can work together with greater efficiency to provide quality programs and services for the membership and the community, whether they are located in the office, at home or on the road.  Download the eBook and contact JMT Consulting Group for more information about deploying a cloud-based financial management system that strengthens connections and improves collaboration with remote workers and supporters.
