A Message To Charities: Get (Good) Tech On Your Side

The notion that tech is the solution, when for so many charities and social enterprises it has been the problem, can be hard to wrap your head around. 

Having decades of experience in the charity sector ourselves, we know all too well how frustrating it is when the very platforms you are paying for to enhance productivity and funding are hindering your ability to succeed. 

Imagine a (likely) scenario: your charity, like most, took a hit during the pandemic and is eager to get back on its feet. To get things up and running, you need a strong team - and lack the time to train volunteers and part-time staff, or the funds to hire more. 

Your organisation’s tech platform of choice should be straightforward enough for your team to manage files - except “it’s just a few pounds per extra user.”      (Said one, five, ten, fifty staff members). 

This had better be worth it, you think to yourself. After all, doesn’t everyone use these platforms? Days - or perhaps hours later - a file has been overwritten. Another has been lost. Later, after you’re home from work, it’s 10pm and someone can’t access a file they need. You try to help, only your laptop is at work. Or, you have your laptop, but the file is in a folder with 200 others.

We’ve experienced these headaches, and they needed to stop - for the simple reason that we are passionate about the charity sector, and sick of the tech that is hindering its potential…

...except for we also knew that tech is the secret to making it work. 

So we created GoodCloud - built on the need to make serious changes in the industry. There’s a lot more to us than meets the eye, but we’ll give you a brief downlow. 

  1. We have unlimited users, meaning you can give either full or limited access to as many colleagues as you’d like. Be it one or one hundred team members accessing one file or all collections,, the power to upload, download, update, delete and save is yours - and yours to share for free.

  1. What you see is what you get. No hidden costs, no need to pay for extra features. All benefits are the same, no matter how much or little storage you sign up for. 

  1. We’re easy-to-use and intuitive. You won’t have to trawl through files to find that one photo or document again. (Fun fact - we even designed our platform with users who struggle to read in mind). 

  1. ...on that note, we may be easy to use, but wow are we secure. Our files are protected under military-strength encryption, meaning we go further than any provider to ensure your files stay in the right hands. 

  1. We’re accessible from any device, anywhere, at any time. 

  1. 25% of our profits go to UK charities and good causes. Not only does our technology help your charity - our very profits do.

  1. We’re less expensive and more effective than all major cloud storage providers.
