Daventry Contact Case Study
Posted on 10th August 2021 at 13:17
Daventry Contact are a local charity that focus on helping struggling families and individuals in their local community. They collect and deliver furniture to homes and sheltered accommodation, to help those struggling with poverty, disability, domestic violence, mental health and learning difficulties.
They approached us to help by providing ongoing IT support and to keep their system updated.
We offer our services to Daventry Contact free of charge to help them in their quest to support the deprived members of their local community.
Migrating and maintaining their computer systems
When Daventry Contact approached us for help, they were running an ageing Exchange Server. As the support for Exchange servers ended in 2020, we facilitated their migration over to Office 365.
Also, as Microsoft Cloud partners, we were able to help them qualify for Non-profit subscriptions allowing them to benefit from Office 365 free of charge.
As well as their email and Exchange data, we also moved all their important files to Microsoft OneDrive.
Now, Daventry Contact have a secure and functional system that supports them as they work to help those around them. Keba Computer Services believe in the work they do and have pledged to offer any support we can.
And that has included our Managing Director Neil Barrett rolling up his sleeves to support them during lockdown, as you can see in this picture.
Daventry Contact is financed by a mixture of local authority grants as well as many donations from Charitable Trusts and Foundations and Local Business.
For example, our computer services are provided free of charge by Keba Computer Services. Keba MD, Neil Barrett, helped out during the first Covid lockdown in 2020.
Neil – many thanks for your excellent ongoing support to us.
