We love helping our customers get the best out of their IT so we’re delighted that Manchester Pride, the UK’s leading Pride event, has asked us to help it out.

We’ll be helping the charity overhaul its digital presence by providing more reliable hosting for a new CRM system which will enable it to communicate better with the thousands of supporters who help it campaign on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues.

As you know Manchester Pride runs a fabulous award-winning festival every August but more importantly it supports a range of charities and organisations in delivering projects with direct impact on the LGBT community and those living with, or affected by HIV, across the North West of England.  Since 2003 it has raised and distributed over £1.1million.

Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive of Manchester Pride, says, “We’ve grown as a charity over the past few years and are now at the stage where we need to streamline our systems as an organisation. Part of this means looking closely at how we manage our IT. We currently have a number of different and cumbersome systems in place for back up and data management. We will be working with the experts at Melbourne to improve that and bring it all together.”
