Work From Anywhere, Anytime

Through our Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Managed Cloud services, we can enable you to work from anywhere.

But why would you want to?

And doesn’t it mean not having your staff where you can keep your eye on them?

For many business owners, I’m sure the first impression the phrase ‘work from anywhere’ conjures up is that of their staff sitting in front of the TV  while pretending to be ‘working  from home’.

But this couldn’t be further from the truth.

For example, by implementing a Work from Home programme a NASDAQ listed company achieved a 22% improvement in employee productivity.

But work from anywhere doesn’t just mean work from home. It really does mean work from anywhere.

And it also means work on any internet connected device you may have (phone, tablet, laptop, etc) just as though you were in the office but without the constant interruptions. This may partly explain why productivity goes up.

‘Anywhere’ does of course include your home. But it also means you can work on the train, in a hotel room or, well anywhere.

And here are a few more benefits you may not have considered:

Your Data Security is Much, Much Better.

This may seem counter-intuitive but it’s true. All of your applications and data reside on a heavily protected server and not on your device.  Your data never leaves your data centre and remains there while you work remotely.

So no data can be hacked while in transit (to and from your device) and there’s no data on your device should it be lost or pinched or left on the train.

Big Reductions in Office Space Required.

And less space = less cost. 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 to office space 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.

Same ‘PC’ Experience

Whatever device you are working on your desktop will look the same. You’ll think you’re on your office PC although the screen may be smaller.

Even so, you’ll be familiar with your environment. As will the rest of your staff, wherever they are.

This not only increases adoption rates, but also results in fewer support calls for your help desk.

 

Flexibility Aids Buy-In to the Hot-Desk Concept

One of the main obstacles to hot-desking is employees are often resistant to change.

However, when done properly the flexibility it gives them results in improvements to their work life balance.

Rather than being seen as a negative move, your employees will feel trusted and empowered. Many companies have already proved that this improves efficiency and productivity.

Reducing office space by nearly 30%

Here at Axess Systems we assist organisations with implementing the IT they need to introduce hot desk policies.

A local authority was able to reduce the office space they required by nearly 30% when they moved to using virtual desktops.

So, whether you want your sales staff to work while they’re travelling, or you want to move to a smaller, hot-desk office, we’re only a phone call away.

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.

Data Security

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.

Our experience

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.
