True remote working
Freedom to access your desktop and all its applications wherever there’s an internet connection
Hosted desktops simply move your PC into the cloud. Instead of needing a PC that’s preloaded with the relevant applications and programs, you can use a thin client, laptop, smartphone, tablet or indeed a PC to access everything you need from the cloud, from any location with an internet connection.
Imagine the convenience of being able to access all your applications, files, programmes and emails from any device with an internet connection.
Flexible working options are standard for many workplaces these days; hosted desktops truly makes it possible for staff to maintain (and perhaps increase) their productivity away from the traditional office environment.
Benefits for everyone
The benefits of hosted desktops are numerous for both the user, IT managers and the company as a whole.
For the user, they have the ability to work effectively away from the office. That means during the commute, at events, in customer meetings, offsite, from home, and anywhere else with an internet connection, access to their full desktop is readily available. It creates a great sense of freedom for employees to work in ways that best delivers their objectives, and creates a modern work ethos employees will thrive in.
For IT managers, hosted desktops are much easier to manage than multiple PCs that all need their own applications, software upgrades and licensing. You’ll have easy access to a central dashboard from which user permissions can be set and admin tasks carried out. Alternatively, if you do not have your own IT resource, we can happily manage the administration of your hosted desktop environment on your behalf.
For the company, it means you can ensure maximum productivity from staff that aren’t in the office and know they can access everything they need in a secure way to complete their task. You also benefit from reduced capital expenditure as there’s no requirement for expensive onsite servers anymore; instead you’ll be using our state-of-the-art cloud servers in the data centre.
Benefits for all involved.
