Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) aren’t about making money—it’s right there in the name. However, just like a business, they want to improve efficiency and lower costs.
Whether it’s strategic planning, budgeting, or compliance, NPOs face many of the same challenges as a traditional business. On top of that, nonprofits must focus on lowering overhead in order to ensure that their money is going to the right place. Using software like Spotfire Analytics, tibbr enterprise social, and TIBCO Business Process Management, nonprofits have the tools to minimize overhead, optimize operations, and deliver the most good to the cause they serve.
Using Mobile to Stay Connected in Remote Areas
For many NPOs, delivering help in the field can be a major challenge. Many of the areas being served lack the connectivity that will help an organization achieve its goals. In order to access company resources while in the field, a lot of NPOs are turning to mobile devices. With a tablet or smartphone, you can capture data, access information, and request support—all remotely.
Delivering More Care More Efficiently
When someone in the field finds a sick child who needs help right away, they don’t usually have the tools to help them then and there. However, with the right technology, they can dramatically shorten the amount of time it takes for that child to receive care. The field agent reports the child’s symptoms, and the information is relayed to the NPO’s main office. From there, the NPO can send measured support while correlating the information with other reports from the area. If they were to notice an upswing in dehydration, for example, they may think about sending water to the entire area.
Such a system relies on robust messaging services like TIBCO Web Messaging and TIBCO Managed File Transfer to deliver information when it’s needed most. With tools like these, it’s possible to send files from remote locations that may not have adequate connectivity.
