Microsoft chose StratusLIVE because of our deep-rooted commitment to the nonprofit sector. In Microsoft’s words, companies like StratusLIVE “demonstrate an ability to develop innovative technologies, methodologies, and outstanding customer service.”
As with all Microsoft partners, we’re tasked with tailoring Microsoft’s many complex, cloud-based enterprise technologies. These technologies are built to meet the diverse and growing demands of today’s nonprofit industry. In keeping with Microsoft’s rigorous partner standards, we do so with cost-effective, flexible solutions.
This presents StratusLIVE with an enormously important responsibility – and opportunity – to represent the rapidly evolving needs of the nonprofit sector. This is particularly true, with Microsoft’s launch of the Dynamics 365 Nonprofit Accelerator and the Common Data Model for Nonprofits. With these innovations, nonprofits drive greater impact and leverage open data standards which improves interoperability and transparency.
“The launch of the Common Data Model for Nonprofits is an unprecedented step that aligns software providers like Microsoft with nonprofits and donors to encourage interoperability and data transparency. The Nonprofit Accelerator brings together solutions built with and for nonprofits by our innovative and global partners [like StratusLIVE] who are committed to collaboratively designing systems that embrace shared data standards to deliver true end-to-end solutions for nonprofits.”

As we not only play a role in influencing design and development choices, our Microsoft partnership allows us to introduce these new tools to customers.
The net result of all this mutual partnership? A suite of technologies that integrate with all Office products that we are already familiar with.
