Remote Desktop Solutions
Many businesses are considering virtual or remote desktops as an alternative to their on-premise systems. Needing less management and resources than a traditional, on-premise environment, they also allow businesses to spread the cost of their IT.
Business productivity can be increased greatly by unifying all communication channels,
including voice, video, email, document sharing and instant messaging. With remote
desktop solutions, workers not only have the required information and data, but also
access to the relevant people in the most relevant format from whatever location they
can be at their most productive.
Remote Office and desktop solutions give workers the ability to connect to the latest
Windows operating system and work with a full suite of Office applications from any
machine with internet connectivity and a remote desktop client. All business IT solutions
that are usually accessed from an on-premises desktop, such as email, intranet and unified
communications, can be accessed in the same manner from the hosted desktop.
Remote desktop solutions that are built and delivered using infrastructure supplied
through the soVision platform benefit from the following:
- UK locality of data. The soVision data centres are located in Gloucester, England.
- Flexible payment options. Choose to pay as you go, pay monthly or pay upfront,
all with associated levels of discount. Pay as your business grows by adding more
users only when needed.
