Remote Working IT Solutions
Productivity shouldn’t have to suffer just because staff can’t make it into the office: modern IT solutions mean organisations can keep going in the face of traditional business disruptions.
As long as employees have an active internet connection at home, they can continue to work as if they are in the office with Akita’s remote working IT solutions.
Take the office with you with virtual desktops and hosted servers
A virtual desktop ensures that if an employee can’t make it into the office, they can access their work desktop and files from home via a cloud hosted server.
Accessed via a portal on a laptop or mobile device, a virtual desktop is just like accessing your PC’s desktop at work, only that the entire setup is held on a cloud hosted server.
Staff can their documents, as well as use the key software they may need to do their job (think Sage, Photoshop or whatever software your business relies upon). All documents and changes are saved to the cloud so there’s no worry about versioning – everyone gets access to the most up-to-date documents.
Hosted server and virtual desktop solutions also mean you can remove the cost of an onsite server setup. Servers are expensive in terms of hardware, maintenance and required upgrades, plus can cost a company as much as £200 a month in electricity. A cloud hosted server solution therefore saves you money and hassle.
