Desktop users still have the same functionality and Windows environment they are used to and the same Microsoft Office programs and specialist applications. But instead of keeping their software and data on a PC or locally based server, we deliver it to them from a secure data centre.
Users access their personal desktop through the internet (or ‘cloud’). It’s encrypted so it’s secure but authorised users can work from anywhere with an internet connection, making them much more mobile.
Your business can stop investing in expensive hardware. You won’t need to replace your server(s) regularly; and old PCs and laptops gain a new lease of life once all their software is stripped out and held in the cloud.
We take care of the routine IT administration, support, security or maintenance. It comes as part of a fixed monthly fee per user. Upgrades and patches are all deployed automatically, and we take responsibility for Microsoft software licensing, including updates to the latest versions. New users can be added or removed at immediately, either via our online portal or by calling our support desk.
When you need help, we are contactable 24/7 and we resolve problems quickly: over 90% of our support tickets are resolved within 30 minutes. Plus, we guarantee 99.99% uptime.
The result: you save money & time and gain productivity. Your data security is enhanced. And your workforce becomes more mobile and productive.
