How nonprofit organisations (NPOs) enhance cost savings and agility?

Funding limitations, inadequate technology infrastructure, and lack of support from stakeholders are biggest pain points of nonprofit organisations (NPOs). However, outdated technology and limited resources as well as data security and privacy make it difficult to address these challenges.

So, how NPOs enhance cost savings and agility?

The answer is: through the utilisation of Low-Code / No-Code platforms. Fast, agile, cost-efficient, and scalable.

Platforms like ServiceNow.org leverage their expertise and capabilities gained from transforming corporations to benefit nonprofit organisations. It allows teams to work faster, simpler, and more efficiently when solving the world’s greatest challenges.

Nonprofits can enhance cost efficiency and agility by harnessing low-code/no-code platforms. These tools simplify the application and portal development process, eliminating the need for extensive coding knowledge. They provide convenient drag-and-drop features, pre-built templates, and customisation options, enabling organisations to streamline operations effectively. You also avoid big investments into your hardware and software and simply leverage the benefits of the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) approach. Because such platforms are also developed for highly sensitive and critical businesses and operations, they the offer highly secured and resilient environments.

What are the biggest pain points that low-code / no-code platforms can solve?

Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) often face challenges related to operational efficiency, costs, and achieving their missions. Technology can help address these challenges by simplifying the process of building solutions and providing outcomes fast.

Non-profit organizations can accelerate their transformation efforts by introducing low-code solutions for internal processes and external communication. These platforms allow users to create applications and solutions through a graphical user interface. Subject matter experts, such as fundraisers, crisis managers, and logistics experts with technology proficiency, can create fully functional apps on platforms like ServiceNow. They can drag and drop the necessary components, connect data sources, and test applications immediately.

What are the major benefits?

Digital platforms enable NPOs to increase the impact of their social objectives by reaching wider audiences, improving communications, and facilitating donor and volunteer relationships. The technology also enables organizations to enhance stakeholder interaction and engagement, both internal and external. By leveraging social media, email campaigns, and other digital tools, NPOs can create a more engaged community, fostering stronger relationships with their stakeholders and ultimately focusing more on their core missions and the people they serve.
