Nonprofits & Cloud Computing: Tools, Services, and Opportunities in the Cloud for Operations and Programs

It’s easy to get caught up in how the cloud can help us communicate or fundraise, but some of the most useful cloud tools can help us manage our operations and deliver our programs more efficiently. This webinar will discuss some of the most popular cloud-based tools that support operations and programs by allowing us to collaborate across distances, manage and share documents in a central location, manage our constituents, and store or back-up files so we can access them anywhere at anytime as long as internet is available. We’ll explore you how these tools can be used and talk about their strengths and weaknesses. Tools covered include:, Cloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Docs, Office 365, and iBackup.
