Anne Frank – IT Strategy Consultancy
IT Strategy created to support & enable the Anne Frank Trust 2020 Vision & Business Plan. Including a 12-24 month action plan of cost effective modernisation.
To complete a Strategic IT Review of the IT budget and future direction of the trust to ensure they were making best use of the latest technologies available to charities.
The IT Strategy review was completed by Greenlight MD Gary Dodson who has experience as a Non-exec Chairman in the Charity sector. The process of review starts with gaining a detailed understanding of the business strategy & existing IT strategy/budgets/partners/desires. The review centres around 3 aspects: IT Infrastructure, Line of Business Applications & Sales/Marketing IT with an overview of data security & skills. We assessed the current technologies used and reviewed the proposals of existing IT partners for significant 2014/15 developments. The outcomes were quite revealing showing the long term partner was not charity sector knowledgeable and highlighted significant missed opportunities. The 12-24 month action plan recommended presents opportunity in both improved performance of IT and savings in excess of 50% in the £10,000’s over the forthcoming budgetary period.
Having been recommended to work with Gary, I was not surprised by the quality of his approach, thoughtful considerations and knowledge of the not-for-profit sector. I was delighted with the recommendations he proposed which have helped enormously in our deliberations about our future IT and business strategies.– Robert Posner – Chief Operating Officer
