Starting at £1,250
Starting at £1,250
Summary: This service forms part of your business continuity planning. In the event of an incident where you need to increase the number of home workers and scale your IT Infrastructure for a limited time, this provides you with operational and business resilience.
The service provides you with a high-level design, costed and time-based implementation plan, with the ability to utilise a reserved Cloud Platform to enable accelerated implementation.
By implementing a Home Working Readiness Service, you have a ready-made plan if you need to scale your IT infrastructure to cope with an increase in the amount of home or remote workers.
This service can help you mitigate the effects of adverse weather, which prevents your users commuting to an office, as well as global pandemics.
Depending on the level of readiness you want to achieve, this can also include reserving cloud compute and storage to effect an even quicker implementation time.
Your Home Working Readiness Service will consist of three phases:
2. Design & Plan
Your Home Working Readiness Service can cover:
– Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops
(formerly Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop)
– Microsoft WVD
– Microsoft RDS
– VPN Solutions
In the first instance, you will work with one of our Certified Experts in Virtualisation to review your existing IT Infrastructure, and its capability to facilitate remote working.
They will work through a detailed checklist to determine your user requirements, endpoints, existing infrastructure, connectivity, speed of implementation, licencing, hardware, data protection issues, security and user experience.
When the analysis of data from the Discover phase is concluded, the consultant will deliver:
– A high-level design
– A fully costed licencing plan with financing options (Capex or Opex)
– IT capacity analysis and remediation plan
– High-level project implementation plan
– Time to implement
– Feature overview
Once the design is finalised, the implementation stage can be delayed until your business needs dictate activation. Implementation and scaling of your remote working capabilities may be facilitated within your existing IT infrastructure should the necessary capacity be available, or extending into our Managed Cloud Platform to leverage additional capacity on a flexible pay-as-you-go Opex pricing model.
By utilising a Managed Cloud Platform for your business continuity, it not only removes the necessity to procure additional hardware, but it also allows you to shorten the implementation period.

“We have tried Citrix consultants from various companies, but often felt they lacked experience or knowledge of the environment we operate. All the representatives from Axess Systems have been far more knowledgeable, and we have made more progress in the last months than we have over several years previously. Despite our demanding schedules, Axess Systems have always been very flexible. They have been key to delivering better user experience. One that is more stable, and a scalable Citrix solution to meet our future demands.”
