More companies than ever before are rolling out hybrid working arrangements for their staff, and there’s even been talk in the global business community about whether remote working should become a right rather than a privilege.
If your business is looking to offer hybrid working on any level, virtual desktops will ensure that everything runs smoothly. In fact, these clever systems can greatly increase productivity regardless of whether your staff are based in your commercial premises, at home, or anywhere else for that matter.
Access your own desktop from anywhere
The nature of a virtual desktop is that it’s stored securely in the cloud rather than on an individual device, such as on your work PC or laptop. This means that no matter where you are or which device you access your virtual desktop on, you’ll always be using the same system. Aside from opening up endless opportunities for remote working, this also removes any risk of creating duplicate files on different devices.
Simply log in using your private password and you’ll instantly be greeted by your familiar desktop, with all of its files, folders, emails, shortcuts and settings. Whether you’re working from home, in the office, whilst visiting a client’s premises, at an industry event or even during your daily commute, virtual desktops offer a seamless user experience.
Ultimate levels of digital security
Virtual desktops from Intrasource are stored within our state-of-the-art UK data centres. As a result, they benefit from outstanding protection against malware, ransomware and hackers, making your data more secure than ever.
As well as ensuring top levels of digital security, virtual desktops also mean that potential problems are nipped in the bud, allowing your business to run smoothly on a daily basis.
Reduce your business costs
Hybrid working is the perfect combination of operating from the office and at home, giving your employees and management teams greater freedom over their productivity levels and workflow. In the process, you can actually reduce your costs in multiple ways.
By adopting hybrid working, your business can reduce bills associated with energy consumption, hardware maintenance and repairs, and even simple things that make a big difference, such as supplies for workplace kitchens and bathrooms. The greatly reduced strain on your company’s hardware will also help to increase its lifespan, resulting in PCs, Macs and laptops lasting longer.
Create a BYOD policy
Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, is an increasingly popular arrangement that enables employees to use their own devices alongside company hardware. For instance, they may use their personal smartphone and laptop as well as a desktop PC allocated by the business, which makes for far greater levels of agility, collaboration and responsiveness.
The one obstacle that stops many businesses from offering a BYOD policy is digital security, as you may worry that your data will be lost or stolen when accessed on a range of devices. Virtual desktops remove this risk entirely, opening up new opportunities for your business to get more done both in the workplace and from anywhere else in the world.
