Offsite Servers (formally Preventa IT) first discovered this a few years ago. When we attended a site the staff would often complain that their work PC was slower than their home PC… Basically, some companies run their IT until it breaks whilst us home users, we all want the best.
Let’s merge them!
This is where our ‘Hosted Infrastructure’ (Hosted / Virtual Desktop) comes in. As a company, give your staff a little bonus for using and maintaining their own kit. As the employer you will provide a ‘secure’ network for your employees device to safely work in and this takes away the worry of getting possible viruses on their own device.
This is also known as a hosted desktop.
(Please call me personally for a demo)
- When it snows, your staff can still work!
- When a staff member isn’t able to come to the office, they can still work from home.
- Don’t fight the traffic!… Start the day working from home then drive in when roads are clear.
- Work from a coffee shop…
All of this is possible!
Your Sales Director doesn’t go into the office to do a customer quote… They are out and about, meeting clients face to face. With our host, they can do their quotes from the car, straight away!
- See it’s a fantastic formula…
- Win that blinding deal!
- So, what’s the main purpose of all this?
- Flexibility, more time…
Life is short, work it, live it.
