Digital Hub now good to go

July 30th, 2021

A set of digital capability tools for Australian NFPs to help strengthen their post-COVID operations has been launched with Infoxchange Group’s Digital Transformation Hub going live.

The need for such a hub was identified in Infoxchange’s 2020 report on digital technology in the NFP sector, that revealed an increasing number of organisations needed to invest in digital technology but lacked time, capability or budget to move swiftly to resolve those issues. Only 30 percent of organisations surveyed had the systems, software, and infrastructure in place to adapt to their changed circumstances. And the pandemic only exacerbated many of these digital problems.

The Infoxchange Group is leading a cross-sector partnership to deliver the Hub, which was established with seed funding from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation and Gandel Philanthropy.

The Hub resources are created by experts to help organisations accelerate their digital transformation, whether they are getting started or looking to build on existing capabilities.

Resources include:

  • A digital capability quiz to assess strengths, with tailored recommendations for opportunities to improve.
  • Access to donated and discounted hardware and software for the NFP sector from Google, Microsoft, Adobe, Amazon, Zoom, MYOB, NetSuite and sector-specific providers.  
  • An “expert bar” where organisations can book one-on-one consultations with experts on subjects like grant applications, digital marketing, data security and much more.
  • Training for technology leaders, staff and volunteers, including self-paced online learning with course content designed specifically for the sector, as well interactive group events and regular webinars.
  • Engaging guides and how-to content for the sector on key areas of interest including tech foundations, IT management, information systems, digital marketing or cyber security.  

Delivery of the Digital Transformation Hub is being supported by a range of partners contributing funding, resources and expertise.These organisations include: Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Gandel Philanthropy, Wheelton Philanthropy, NSW Government through the Social Sector Transformation Fund, Victorian Government, PwC Australia, Google, Microsoft, Griffith University, Swinburne University, Beaker & Flint, Communiteer, Isgood.AI, HumanIT, Tyne Solutions, CSnet, PN Digital, Comunet, Engage4Change, Nova Smart Solutions, Digital Purpose, Strategic Grants and Insight 38.
