Don’t Want to Buy A Ton of Computers for Your Team? Try Virtual Desktops

We all have hobbies we wish we had more time to pursue. Rock climbing, scuba diving, camping, traveling, dancing, drawing, watching t.v… you name it. You love your job, but it’s undeniable that it can be a bit constricting to your spontaneity when you have to go into the office every day for a set number of hours.

Virtual desktops could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Virtual desktops are just how they sound – a desktop you log into virtually. Not only is this a neat gadget to have, but it also brings fantastic benefits to your company such as cash savings and ultimate mobility. Here’s how:

Affordable and Convenient

Traditionally, implementing a new desktop is expensive. Think about it. First, you have to pay for the new computer and all the cabling that comes with it. Then, you have to purchase the software and applications that your business utilizes and wait for them all to download. Not only is this expensive, but it’s also a huge time commitment.  

This all changes with virtual desktops. With this solution, you can now use the internet to sign into your customized desktop from anywhere, anytime, on any device, immediately. 

Cost Benefits

When you switch over to virtual desktops, your capital expenses drastically decrease. Instead, your payment becomes a subscription-based, operational expense that is charged at a flat, monthly fee. This predictability and elimination of surprise costs makes budgeting a whole lot simpler and strategic.

Implementing virtual desktops also allows workers to use their own device. This can save business owners from having to buy additional computers or other hardware devices.  

Convenience

As we briefly mentioned, having a virtual desktop that can be accessed anywhere opens the door to where you can take your work. For example, if you have some free time and would like to get ahead at home, you can do that now and have access to everything you would have had at the office. Or, if you’re traveling for the holidays and just really need a break from the family, you can sneak off into the other room and log onto a computer and transfer that energy into getting work done. 

This flexibility also opens the possibility to pursuing your passions more. For example, ask your boss if you can work from home for the next few days and take those morning hikes you always think about. Afterward, you can sit at home relaxed as you sign into your laptop to work. Studies find that remote workers are actually happier and more productive. The possibilities are endless.

Also, with virtual desktops, the upgrading and maintenance of your applications will happen automatically. Imagine the time and money that this will save.
