Proud To Be A Microsoft 365 Partner

Varsity has been proud to partner with Microsoft 365 over the years, and we’re thrilled to continue sharing our knowledge and expertise with our clients. Not only have we become experts on the Microsoft 365 suite of tools, we have also become well-versed in supporting Microsoft Azure, a powerful cloud computing that benefits many of our clients. We’ve seen first-hand how nonprofits can reduce costs and improve efficiency by leveraging Azure’s expansive set of integrated services.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Microsoft 365 and supporting organizations integrate these powerful tools to increase their mission impact.

How Microsoft 365 Benefits Your Organization

With Microsoft’s suite of cloud-based productivity tools, here are some key ways your organization can benefit:

Allows Collaboration From Anywhere: With tools like Teams, SharePoint and OneDrive, your team can collaborate effectively from anywhere. Your team can create and share documents, work on them simultaneously, track changes, and provide real-time feedback remotely. This enhances teamwork and streamlines the collaboration process, all while your team can enjoy the benefits of working in a flexible, remote environment.

Improves Communication: Microsoft Teams serves as a central, easy-to-use hub for communication. With instant messaging, audio and video conferencing, and screen sharing tools, your team will improve internal and external communication. Teams also integrates with other Microsoft 365 tools, allowing users to collaborate even more seamlessly on shared projects.

Provides Scalability and Cost-Effectiveness: With flexible plans customized to your budget needs, Microsoft 365 is an important investment. Their subscription-based model eliminates the need for significant upfront investments in software and hardware. You can easily scale their licenses up or down as per their requirements. Microsoft also offers grants and discounted licenses for nonprofits, making it a cost-effective option for mission-driven organizations.

Enhances Security: Microsoft 365 provides robust security features to protect organizational data. It includes built-in threat protection, data loss prevention, and Multi-Factor Authentication. Microsoft regularly updates and patches the software, ensuring your organization has the latest security features. Microsoft 365 also supports compliance with various industry standards, such as GDPR and HIPAA.

Offers Centralized Data Management: With Microsoft 365, organizations can store their data in SharePoint and OneDrive and benefit from a centralized location for file management. This reduces the risk of data loss, improves data organization, and enables efficient search and retrieval of information.
