Business Challenge

Nonprofit Organization in Need of Technology Solutions

Many nonprofit organizations have unique needs and challenges and require a managed service provider with comprehensive support and the expertise to tailor solutions. The nonprofit client was seeking a new partner to assist with their service desk, technology infrastructure, security, and monitoring. They were facing multiple issues with their previous Managed Service Provider (MSP), including lack of personalization, attention to detail, effective communication, and management support. This led to a host of challenges:

  • The service desk displayed a lack of flexibility in handling support requests, as well as non-responsiveness to the client’s specific needs, led to delays in resolving service tickets, and diminished user satisfaction.
  • The client’s infrastructure, predominantly based on Azure, demanded a provider with not only technical expertise but also the ability to manage and optimize the technology effectively.
  • The complexity of managing a global IT infrastructure across various regions and time zones compounded the challenges, requiring a comprehensive and streamlined approach.

The decision to transition to a new MSP was not just due to the limitations of the existing provider but also to proactively seek cloud solutions to enhance client satisfaction and address the unique requirements of worldwide monitoring and Azure-managed services.

The client recognized the need for a partner capable of aligning with its mission while providing personalized, efficient, and responsive managed IT services to ensure seamless global operations. In response to these challenges, the client strategically chose Auxis as its new MSP, marking the beginning of a collaborative journey to transform IT support and fortify the organization’s capabilities in delivering impactful programs worldwide.
