Orchid – Fighting Male Cancer
About the organisation:
Orchid is the UK’s leading charity working to save men’s lives from male cancer through a range of support services, education and awareness campaigns and a pioneering research programme.
Established in 1996 by testicular cancer patient, Colin Osborne MBE and the oncologist who saved his life, Professor Tim Oliver, Orchid exists to save men’s lives from male cancer through a range of support services, education and awareness campaigns and a pioneering research programme.
What help did they require?
Orchid relocated in 2015, and experienced issues with their IT and telecommunications, including poor quality of service.
How did you do it?
Novo-K met Orchid to discuss their IT issues to help them understand the options available and how to go about procuring the right services.
The result was a full report for the charity detailing their requirements, results of investigations into the existing suppliers and providing recommendations to move forward.
“Novo K helped us get to the root of our IT issues. As a charity dedicated to supporting men and their families affected by male specific cancers, it’s imperative that we have reliable IT systems so that we can communicate with supporters, healthcare professionals and cancer patients. Novo K communicated efficiently with our suppliers, providing a step by step report of their findings and offered tailor-made solutions to suit our organisation’s needs.”Rebecca Porta
