Home Working & Remote Desktop for 5-50 Users
Here’s a typical scenario of what might have happened or be going on in your organisation, and why you might want to consider TechQuarters to help you setup your home working remote desktop setup going forward.
Implementing more working from home long term can be a great choice for both employees and organisations alike. Staff don’t have to face the daily commute, can save some money on travel and food and drink and organisations can save on office space by downsizing or even getting rid of their office altogether. However, just because you aren’t office based doesn’t mean you have to compromise on a professional or secure network or IT setup. This is where Windows Virtual Desktop comes in, but first take a look at the scenarios below that may mean Windows Virtual Desktop is suitable for your organisation as a work from home setup:
- You’ve moved 50% or more of your staff to work from home for 3 days or more per week
- You are thinking of or planning on getting rid of your office
- You require securing of your corporate data to avoid data leakage
- You want to eradicate the risk of viruses from home machines if users use home machines
Quite a few of the organisations in the above scenarios have decided to choose an infrastructure like Windows Virtual Desktop – virtualised desktops in the cloud with data controlled and access to company apps – to help with their work from home setup. Some chose Microsoft 365, with data in SharePoint, communications in Teams or Zoom and Windows 10 and Office on the desktop. The key thing is we’ve managed to help create a network that is secure, reliable, and clean. So, the consequence of that change is the bulk of the re-engineering the network is done.
Choosing Windows Virtual Desktop is a great work around for some of the scenarios of concerns above, but its also a very flexible solution that can be configured to meet lots of other requirements as well. You may want to use it to create a hybrid solution, with some users at home and some in the office. You can give all remote users to access all your company applications with speed and efficiency, more importantly you want users in the office and at home to be able to collaborate with each other in real time on documents. Windows Virtual Desktop also gives you the opportunity to reduce or eradicate any on-premise servers or network. And finally, you may want to feel that your whole company is joined up like they are all in one office, whilst at disparate locations.
