The hosted desktop is something that has become increasingly important in the last few years and so many businesses are now seeing the benefits of their use. If you haven’t we’ve created these tips to give you an idea of how you could gain.
Always ready – your own desktop, anywhere, anytime
With a hosted desktop, your staff will be able to access their own desktop computers through the internet, utilizing devices such as Macs, PCS, and even simpler ones such as smartphones, tablets and thin clients.
As you won’t need to buy new PCS, software licence upgrades or servers, you won’t be investing continually in depreciating assets – freeing up money to be used in more strategic investments.
Customer-Specific Integrated Applications
The Hosted Desktop technology utilizes virtual servers dedicated to each customer in order to run their applications. This will make sure applications ran are secure and capable of interacting with one another – for instance, a user can integrate CRM application toolbars into Office the same way the would when using a Windows computer.
Resilient, Secure And Safe
Secure logon through Microsoft Remote Desktop Services’ encryption, as well as the ability to restrict users’ access to certain applications, files, and folders, Cloud Direct provides a very secure service.
With automatic updates, you can free up your IT team’s time, allowing then to focus on strategical tasks which will add more value to your business.
Your important data will be held centrally on your Hosted Desktop – considerably lowering the time it takes to find important documents when you need them.
According to recent studies, the option of working from home increases the productivity, loyalty and morale of your staff. It also helps you recruit from larger geographical locations, since it eliminates the need for daily commuting.
Sharing folders, documents and calendars automatically across your entire team will improve coordination and productivity.

With a Hosted Desktop, you’ll pay only for what you use – and you’ll spend much less time maintaining and managing your IT system. Here are some more tips to cut costs.
