The Thai Red Cross Society recently adopted Office 365 to enhance speed and reliability in its communication systems and mission-readiness, the Thailand-based nonprofit has announced.
To date, the Thai Red Cross Society has successfully migrated 3,000 staff and volunteers to Office 365 Enterprise E3 edition and plans to expand Office 365 usage to its remaining 7,000 users.
Office 365 was implemented by the organization under Microsoft's Office 365 for Nonprofits, a software donation progamme for non-governmental organizations and non-profits (NGOs).
The adoption of Office 365 allows the Thai Red Cross Society to be more responsive in carrying out their social missions, leveraging the same cloud-based technology that enables Multi-National Corporations (MNCs), small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and public organizations to more productive and collaborative anytime and anywhere.
"With Office 365 supporting their day-to-day work, the Thai Red Cross Society no longer has to worry about maintaining complex and costly IT infrastructure needed to make its staff and volunteers productive and collaborative," said Clair Deevy, Citizenship Lead, Asia Pacific, Microsoft.
Previously, the Thai Red Cross Society utilized an email system that was plagued with many issues, including unstable internet links, limited data storage, and various complexities associated with maintenance. This led to a considerable strain on their IT staff who had to deal with numerous IT support requests. These problems were significantly reduced once they started using Office 365.
