The need to adapt is now more urgent than ever. With the uncertain outlook of the pandemic, medium to small-sized businesses are looking to keep and gain a competitive edge through the use of technology. Companies have limited face-to-face interactions making it a struggle for most to maximize productivity. Businesses are now moving to remote desktop solutions to maintain business continuity.
If your business runs solely through an on-premise server, now is the time to consider desktop as a service. Remote desktop solutions allow users to connect with cloud-based servers and internal networks without the need for costly hardware. Here are some of the many benefits a remote desktop system has to offer.
Test the Waters in a Bigger Talent Pool
According to Slack Technologies, an estimated 16 million US knowledge workers started remotely due to COVID-19 as of March 27, with that number likely growing. Remote work provides a level of autonomy that can lead to close-knit relationships and increased productivity despite the distance. Furthermore, the introduction of remote access presents the option to expand the talent pool on a national level. Thus, giving your team the option to add the expertise it may need.
Cutting Costs and Response Times
It’s no secret that IT spend is consistently growing every year. According to Gartner, Inc., worldwide IT spend is projected to total $3.9 trillion in 2020, an increase of 3.4% from 2019. Due to the current circumstances, that number is only going to increase.
Remote desktop solutions are cloud-based, as opposed to traditional on-premise servers. On-premise servers generally are more costly than cloud-based systems. Cloud-based systems give you the benefit of knowing what your budget is and will be over time rather than having a significant increase in costs when your server breaks down unexpectedly. Physical systems require constant onsite support to carry out regular maintenance and troubleshooting. Cloud-based servers provide geographic flexibility when it comes to resolving system issues, reducing downtime, and saving money.
Flash drives and limited storage space are now a thing of the past with the integrated systems that cloud services offer.
Data Security You Can Trust
Data security has become essential for businesses in our ever-expanding digital world. Remote desktop solutions provide users with a team of security experts who specialize in keeping your data and systems secure.
Cloud-based desktop solutions protect your network with advanced key encryption to prevent system intrusions. Also, to further provide you and your team with peace of mind, data backups run regularly to help recover any lost information.
Effective Data Management
The bottom line is that a cloud-based remote desktop provides you and your staff with seamless access that can easily manage data and projects. Flash drives and limited storage space are now a thing of the past with the integrated systems that cloud servers offer.
As an administrator, you can edit permissions of users and restrict access to certain documents in a way that has never been easier. The biggest takeaway is that you can accomplish this feat even when you are out of the office.
