International aid agency GOAL has deployed cloud computing technology to some 1,500 aid workers in 13 of the world’s poorest and most deprived countries. The deployment by Ergo is one of the biggest Microsoft 365 deployments to go live so far.
Since its inception, GOAL has spent in excess of €720m on humanitarian programmes in more than 50 countries. More than 2,300 GOALies and many thousands of local staff have worked in the developing world on GOAL's behalf and the organisation has responded to every major humanitarian disaster since 1977. A combination of out-of-the-box applications and customised Ergo solutions have seen aid workers improve their personal productivity by as much as 20%, according to Rob Lacey, IT manager in GOAL.
