Do your employees work from home, or would you like them to be able to, at some point? Do you have a large sales staff that is often on the road? Are you a frequent flyer with a large customer base or business back home? Remote desktop service might be the way to run your business more smoothly without a huge capital investment.
By setting up remote desktops for your employees, they have access to the same applications as everyone else in the company. They can store and share files and applications more easily. You don’t have to worry about which employees have access to which versions of which software. Everyone has the same options, no matter where they are located. Upgrades are instantaneous and for everyone.
Remote desktop services provide you with regular backups so there is never a risk of lost files due to human error or some kind of disaster. Employees who work from remote locations or travel frequently can log into the system and have all the information – apps and files – that they would have back home on their desktop.
In most cases, there is no need for an in house IT department. IT is one of the services provided when you sign up for this type of service. You do not pay for software updates and can usually use the hardware you already have. Other than the monthly fee, there are no additional costs to using a cloud based desktop system for your business. Go remote with virtual desktops and see how much more efficiently your business runs.
