Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations


Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations

Churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and other faith-based organizations have different theologies. But there are administrative challenges that your organization probably has in common with all of your peers: Taking care of computers. Making sure members' personal records are safe and confidential. Managing your organization's finances. And doing it all on a limited budget.

If your faith-based organization is like many, you may not have resources dedicated to looking after your computers. You may be relying on volunteers, or you may bring in third parties when something goes wrong.

But there's a better way: Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations can help you tackle your technology to-do list with speed, ease and a predictable monthly bill designed to fit your organization's budget. So you can focus more time on your organization's mission—and spend less time scrambling to fix computer problems.

Through remote monitoring, Ricoh spots issues with your network and computers before those problems affect your organization. We also take care of the ongoing software upgrades and patches that are so important to keeping systems up, running and secure. Ricoh's IT experts can even help you figure out what your organization needs to back up your data. So you can better protect important records about baptisms, mitzvahs, marriages and other milestone events.

Make IT costs predictable and affordable
You may be spending more on your network and computers than you think. Those costs come in the form of checks you write to third parties that fix your systems—but they also come in the form of productivity that you lose when your network goes down, as well as member records that may be at risk and communication opportunities that you may be missing. Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations gives you a single monthly bill—plus the assurance that your information will be available when and where you need it.

Build a platform for today—and tomorrow
In today's world of always-on mobile devices, your organization faces the important task of "modernizing" the way you communicate and engage with your members and the larger community. You need a technology environment that can support you in this new world of work. Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations can help you build a stable platform for not only tackling your current to-do list—but also positioning you for online storage, document management and cloud-based mobile printing.

Help keep your information safe
As an organization that gathers and stores personal and financial information about individuals and families, you have important obligations to keep such data safe and confidential. In years past, you could do that by simply locking up paper files. Today, computer-based storage makes it more complex and more challenging to keep information safe. That's why Ricoh IT Services for Faith Based Organizations include network firewall security and backup services, as well as software licensing updates and patches.
