Red Cross offers Office 365 globally to improve communications

Microsoft cloud e-mail and collaboration suite available to millions of the relief organisation workers.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) now offers its more than 180 National Societies the option to adopt Office 365, Microsoft’s cloud-based suite of e-mail, collaboration and productivity software.

The IFRC’s decision to make Office 365 available to its in-country organisations is part of its effort to help those of them which have fallen behind in technology — estimated at more than a third of all National Societies.

It will be up to each National Society to decide whether or not to adopt Office 365. However, with about 200,000 employees and about 15 million volunteers at these national operations, the global Office 365 roll out could very well exceed 1 million end users, and maybe hit several million users.
