With the way technology is shaping up today, it seems like every day there is a breakthrough on some new cloud technology or a new app that will change the world. A new topic of interest that has caught our attention is the use of Virtual Desktops and apps that allow employees access to company software from anywhere in the world!
Leading company in Virtual Desktops: Citrix Hosting
While many people tend to over complicate what a virtual desktop does and can do for your business, the folks over at Citrix Hosting seem to have gotten this all figured out. Basically from the moment you contact them, they will take you step by step through the process of setting up a virtual desktop for yourself and your employees.
Do not expect to be just shoved into some standard package that they assign to each business. These employees actually ask questions about your future goals, then try to analyze everything about your business. These gurus find out the things you may need, and things you definitely do not need all before even mentioning a plan to purchase.
Once the Citrix Hosting gurus have got a clearer idea on what your needs are, they design a specific and individual plan that fits your business like a glove. All the features you want, none of the fluff you constantly try to avoid.
But WHAT do Virtual Desktops do?
In the most simplest sense, a business chooses the main programs and software that they want their employees to have. Then they upload all of this to a server that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. This is literally the ideal solution to any business who outsources a lot of their work overseas, or simply travels themselves and needs access to their business files at all times.
Employees will have all the software they need, running at faster than normal speeds, because everything is streamlined for you by a Citrix Hosting guru. These gurus can have this virtual desktop solution set up for you the very same day you call in for the service.
On top of all of this, you can choose which data centers you want your servers to be at, and if you ever have a problem, they have a 24/7 live chat option for new and returning customers alike. Umbee hosting even has a dedicated phone line that you can call to speak directly with someone who can help tweak your plan right then and there.
The unspoken benefit of a Virtual Desktop
While it may take some time getting used to the idea that you can literally access everything you need that is on your office computer, from the comfort of a beach in Thailand, one thing always seems to be forgotten when mentioning virtual desktops.
A huge component to why many businesses are moving into this new “Virtual Desktop” era is that this technology drastically reduces storage and end point costs. No longer are you filling every single desktop or laptop to max storage with useless applications that may get used once or twice a month.
This new setup allows all the software and applications to be streamlined from a single point of origin, and keeps your employees computers running smoothly and quickly so that they can finish the tasks assigned to them as soon as possible.
With so many companies nowadays outsourcing their labor to India or the Philippines for pennies on the dollar; technology is catching up and producing some great products that really help small and large business owners equip their employees with everything they need to be successful!
