Karl welcomes to the show Dan Webb, Vice President of Technical Solutions and Services at TechSoup Global. Dan talks about the wealth of technology resources MSPs can help their non-profit clients access through TechSoup.
Dan explains that TechSoup aggregates vendor donations and donation programs so that not-for-profits can readily access the resources. He says they have 650,000 NGOs all over the globe in their system. He says last year they helped deliver $900 million fair market value in tech support, software, hardware, and service donations to those NGOs.
Dan mentions that they administer many large tech company philanthropic programs, such as the Microsoft Donation Program. He says they have resources from Skype credits, Intuit programs for PC and Mac, multiple language options, and more. He notes that Dell, HP, Lenova, and Apple are a part of their Refurbished Computer Initiative.
Dan also walks MSPs through the first steps they need to take to get their non-profit clients connected with TechSoup resources. He notes that fulfillment can often be digital and immediate for organizations that register and qualify.
Karl is also joined by MSP Mark Moreno, Owner of C&M Support Services & Consulting. Mark has been servicing non-profit and church organization clients for many years and has extensive experience in working with TechSoup.
Mark says they have been able to access amazing resources for clients, to include exchange servers in the low hundreds, Office suites in the $10-12 range, and licenses for servers at ridiculously low prices.
Mark also offers advice to MSPs looking to service non-profits. He encourages MSPs to take time to learn and understand the particular non-profit space you wish to approach, whether it be servicing churches, schools, or something else.
Manual Palachuk also joins the show in our Oddballs
segment to talk about building a repair & restoration catalog for your IT service delivery business.
