“I like working with FOS.net because they are very responsive and proactive“
Locality supports local community organisations to be strong and successful. Their national network of over 600 members helps more than 400,000 people every week. They offer specialist advice, peer learning and campaign for a fairer society.
An early adopter of Microsoft SharePoint, Locality took the decision to migrate their infrastructure to the cloud back in 2016. At that time, they were employing a full time IT manager to support a head count of 50 staff. After a review their IT costs, the board took the decision to partner with an MSP and reached out to FOS.net to help them develop a strategic roadmap. FOS.net were not only able to fulfil the role of their IT manager, but they also provided a range of managed services to bolster Locality’s security, which in turn delivered considerable savings.
The partnership is now into its fourth year and goes from strength to strength. Locality regularly survey their staff and the feedback is always extremely positive and complementary. As a registered charity Locality benefit from Microsoft’s non-profit pricing which allows them to embrace the full functionality of 365 Business platform at heavily discounted rates.
