About Smartdesc

Smartdesc has been providing IT services to the not-for-profit sector for 10 years, placing a strong emphasis on IT strategy and leadership  especially valuable where organisations have limited or no in-house IT expertise. Their ethos is to listen, understand, improve, enhance and secure the IT systems they look after, to help charities ensure technology enables staff to deliver their missions smarter. 

They hold long-standing and trusted partnerships with charities of all shapes and sizes, ranging from large national bodies and NGOs to small start-up organisations in the UK. Sharing best practice and innovation across the sector is a founding principle of the company, and they work closely with the Microsoft Tech for Social Impact team to help non-profits maximise the grants and donations they are eligible for.
