There are around 200,000 charities in the UK, employing nearly a million people. This sector has been a conundrum for the IT channel because, whilst there are opportunities for professional service fees, ongoing revenue and margin are depressed by heavily discounted licenses and low commission rates.
For example, Microsoft’s E1 license is free up to 2000 users and E3 is only £4 a month. To add Phone System to either of these is only £2.40 but at £9.10 pcm (and no reseller commission), resellers and their customers have been put off by Microsoft’s Calling Plan (needed to make and receive calls outside the Teams environment).
Now resellers of Jola’s Direct Routing call plan for Teams can offer their non-profit customers the full suite of Office products, including Exchange, Teams, Phone System, and Unlimited UK calls at a competitive price.
Not only will the customer save on the rental of a traditional/hosted phone system, they will also no longer need telephone lines or ISDN.
The IT reseller will be making at least ten times the ongoing margin per seat that they would make on the standard licensing alone.

Besides traditional resellers and dealers, we service IT VARs, MSPs and Microsoft Partners, trusted by their customers to deliver and support solutions.
