SAVANNAH — The Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia has selected Speros, a technology company headquartered in Savannah with an office in Hinesville, as its technology partner.
The nonprofit organization serves most of Georgia, including Liberty and Long counties.
“Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia has over 80 employees working in more than 15 different locations, who all need to be able to access the same data sources as well as communicate effectively with over 18,000 girls and adults,” said Sue Else, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. “We felt Speros, having the expertise in telephone communication as well as technology, could make that happen.”
Girl Scouts staff will have access to data on the “Speros Cloud” whether they are at their desk or in the field, serving members.
Speros also negotiated and installed a new Toshiba phone system throughout the scouts statewide locations and is providing support features including monitoring, staff assistance and technology updates.
“We work hard to ensure all of our customers have the right products at the best prices, but we take extra care with nonprofits, such as the Girl Scouts, to ensure they receive discount plans that carriers might make available to NPOs,” said Keith Fletcher, chief operating officer at Speros.”
While figures are still preliminary, Else estimates an annual cost savings of more than $160,000 as a result of the technology partnership.
Else said, “Dollars saved from this partnership will go far in continuing to provide the best possible Girl Scout program for the girls throughout Historic Georgia.”
