As a start-up nonprofit, Samasource needed low cost resources to get off the ground
quickly. This not only meant having a streamlined workflow for daily operations, but
also a way of finding donors to help them achieve their goals.
Samasource operates in five countries, so it's crucial that they have a way to
communicate quickly across the globe. To do this, they take full advantage of G
Suite. Their employees use Google Docs so that everyone can collaborate on a single
document, no matter where they are in the world. Additionally, they communicate via
Google Hangouts, sync calendars daily and store files in Google Drive. Samasource
also uses AdWords to connect to potential students and donors, and Google Hangouts on
Air to host a quarterly 'learnings call' and to build more public awareness of the
work they do.
The suite of Google products has really helped us get off the ground and not have to
pay too much money to do that.'
Leila Janah, Founder & CEO, Samasource
As a growing and global nonprofit, it's crucial that they connect teams frugally and
effortlessly through the suite of Google products. Secure file collaboration allows
for streamlined workflows across multiple geographies, ensuring that an ecosystem of
over 1,000 workers is able to access the appropriate files and documentation.
And as a start-up with big ambitions, Samasource benefited from advertising solutions
from Google for Nonprofits. AdWords helped Samasource reach thousands of potential
customers, educating technology companies about the power of impact sourcing.
Additionally, AdWords was the primary driver in the enrolment of over 25,000 students
from 87 countries in Samaschool, an online digital skills training course.
