The Digital Workplace Explained

Good Tools for Doing Good

Ideal State was founded on the belief that people working to make the world a better place shouldn’t be held back by their technology.

Every hour of lost productivity or dollar wasted on poorly performing IT systems represents a drain on scarce resources for doing good.

From NGOs and grantmakers to social enterprises, we’ve got digital transformation for social good covered.
