Eligible charities can now access the latest Microsoft Office suite through CTT's charity technology donation programme
London, 29 January 2013 - Charity Technology Trust (CTT) has announced that the latest version of Microsoft Office is now available through CTT's technology donation programme, CTXchange. Eligible charities and not-for-profit organisations that are registered to the programme can now obtain the new Office Standard and Professional editions at a discounted rate.
Charities with remote workers or staff that travel frequently can benefit from Office's integration with the cloud. Its direct link to online storage drive, SkyDrive, allows users to sync their documents and work across several devices, saving it as they go. This means they can start a document on their desktop and pick up where they left off on a tablet without any disruption. Microsoft's Office 365 web apps will also allow staff and volunteers create, edit, and share documents online.
"Having access to the most up-to-date software helps charities to run at optimal efficiency," said Richard Craig of CTT. "Our partnerships with companies like Microsoft mean we can offer eligible members of our CTXchange programme the advantages that access to the latest technology brings."
Eligible organisations are still able to request donated upgrades of Windows 8 Professional and Windows 8 Enterprise through CTXchange, which have been available since October 2012.
Charity Technology Trust's CTXchange programme enables eligible charities and charitable housing associations to receive hardware and software products, donated by leading brands, to improve the efficiency of their operations. It is part of a global partnership operated by Techsoup, headquartered in the USA. The programme has helped donate hardware and software to over 12,000 charities.
