Sailability Forum UK: new forum reply to IT provision for Sailability clubs

New reply from Simon Whiteley

<p>While looking into this, I came across this site Cheap versions of standard software for charities. </p>
<p>It does look as if Google has caught up with Dropbox on file syncing, which was the main reason we went with Dropbox, so maybe we will look again in due course.</p>

IT provision for Sailability clubs

<p>I know this is perhaps a topic to cure insomnia, but at the Woolverstone Project we have decided to try and update our IT provision. Increasingly a lot of our activities lead to more and more electronic files, and we wanted some way to centralise things and make sure that we could make everything available to the right people as volunteers, trustees and so on, change over. We used to store documents and so on through our website, but we have moved across to Google for non-profits:</p>

<p>As charities we can access all the Google services for free. As a non-profit, you can set up as many users as you need and each user gets 30GB of free storage. You can also handle all club email through the service and get free access to all the Google apps – Google docs, calendars, Google sheets etc.</p>
<p>How do other clubs manage their electronic files? Has anyone got an alternative way?</p>
<p>I'd be happy to provide further details or discuss this all further if any other clubs are interested.</p>
