In the current economic climate every organisation is looking at ways to increase productivity, whilst driving down operating costs. One of the ways we help our customers achieve this is by application virtualisation and virtual desktops to enable hot desking.
The cost of office space in the UK, and not just in major centres such as London, Birmingham and Manchester, is ridiculously expensive.
Modern working practices such as part-time working, flexitime and on-the-road working mean the amount of time spent in the office is greatly reduced. Yet many organisations are still prepared to allocate a significant fixed cost that is only being used some of the time.
The traditional set-up of having one user allocated to a desk in a one location is proving to be outmoded.
By using virtualisation you can make the most of this reduction in “at desk hours”, by implementing hot desking. Hot desking enables you to take advantage of this spare capacity by reducing the amount of space your organisation is utilising, and subsequently reduce the associated office costs.
Why virtualisation is ideal for implementing hot desking
The reasons why virtualisation comes in to its own if you want to introduce hot desking are:
Same ‘PC’ experience
By delivering the same ‘PC’ experience whether your user is in the office using a thin client, on the road using an iPad or working at home on their own PC, means your user is familiar with their environment. This not only increases adoption rates, but also results in fewer support calls for your helpdesk.
Flexibility aids buy-in to the hot desk concept
One of the main obstacles to hot desking is employees are often resistant to change. When done properly the flexibility and the improvements in work life balance you can achieve via hot desking mean that rather being seen as a negative, your employees feel trusted and empowered; thereby increasing efficiency and productivity.
Quite rightly, one of the main concerns you may have is the vulnerability of your data when your employees are working at other locations. With application virtualisation and virtual desktops this is not a problem, as your data never leaves your data centre. And no information resides on the user’s device.
Here at Axess Systems we have assisted organisations implement the IT they need to introduce hot desk policies. Probably the best example of where this has been implemented is with a local authority. They reduced office space by nearly 30%, by implementing virtual desktops.
Hot desking with the right virtualisation technology saves space, enables considerable cost savings and increases productivity and efficiency.
