What is the Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator?

At QUANTIQ, we prioritise communication, efficient system management and data consolidation wherever possible. This is particularly important for Not for Profit organisations, who require close, careful management of each of these elements in order to run their organisations in the most impactful way. Not for Profits can struggle with a lack of resources, often including a shortage of assigned IT personnel or dedicated platforms through which to facilitate real technological change. But we believe Not for Profits shouldn’t be left behind from accessing the most modern technology for complete organisational management.

As a leading global Microsoft Partner, we generate this change through revolutionary Microsoft products like Dynamics 365. Dynamics 365 offers a wealth of potential for real change in Not for Profit organisations, by streamlining processes, allowing for increased analytics and providing effective donor and volunteer management systems.

Within Not for Profits currently using Dynamics 365, these benefits can signify real change on the horizon: particularly in terms of their capacity to inform strategy and donor campaigns. However, not every Not for Profit has the resources or technical knowledge to be able to implement and maximise the value of Dynamics 365.

Microsoft have designed an accelerator pack, to facilitate the easy implementation of Dynamics 365 within a Not for Profit environment, designed to address common problems.

Make it easier to adopt and maximise the value of Dynamics within a not for profit organisation, by using the Dynamics 365 accelerator.

The Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator is a suite by Microsoft, consisting of sample apps, templates, and connectors which are designed specifically for Not for Profit organisations. Indeed, these aspects of the accelerator are designed to solve the pressing challenges that Not for Profits tend to face when using Dynamics 365, which can result in stunted growth or limited impact.

Not for Profit organisations can use this Nonprofit Accelerator when developing solutions to reduce cost, allow for impact measurement and management of components. Microsoft have designed the Nonprofit Accelerator to assist such organisations to drive their missions, by analysing their effective strategies and applications. These solutions will additionally be added to the Microsoft Common Data Model for Nonprofits.

The Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator additionally contains installable solutions, which have within them standard entity attribute extensions, not for profit entities and attributes, pre-built dashboards, workflows, and sample data, amongst other tools. The Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator can either be used in conjunction with Microsoft Dynamics 365, or can be used independently with the core solution layer that is not dependent on Dynamics 365.

What are the benefits of the Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator?

Though it can be used independently, the real advantages to Not for Profits are apparent when the accelerator is used in conjunction with Dynamics 365 software throughout the organisation. Thanks to this seamless integration between the platforms, Not for Profit organisations can then optimize many of their operational processes including donor management, volunteer management, fundraising, program delivery and impact tracking, based on the IATI standard. This additionally offers Not for Profit organisations the opportunity to leverage the entire constituent-engagement solution within Dynamics 365.

This accelerator prevents inequalities in resource from holding back Not for Profit organisations, making it easier for all team members to follow digital best practice and generate a foundation for real growth and change.
