Working remotely is a huge benefit to your business, staff and customers and is becoming more and more popular.
Using a secure Remote Desktop solution enables your business to function as well, under any circumstances (business interruption, travel disruption, school holidays or child sickness even!), and gives you and your team flexibility to work from home, therefore reducing travel time and expense, increase productivity and makes you an attractive proposition to potential new recruits.
You can connect into the office using a secure Remote Desktop connection and work securely, and as efficiently, on the business network like you were in the office itself. No more copying files to a pen drive and then re-uploading them once back in the office or emailing files home to work on.
Our secure Remote Desktop solution offers many benefits such as supporting the use of 'on premise' applications like Sage Accounts or ACT etc. It also offers the security of being managed on the business network behind a secure firewall and not a home network.
Alternatively, and if your budget is a little more restricted, you can connect to your fileserver or NAS drive from home using an encrypted VPN. Here you can still connect to your fileserver or NAS drive from home but are still working on your PC or Laptop. Although this solution doesn’t have as many benefits as a remote desktop server, it’s another, less expensive way to work from home.
Microsoft Office 365
Host your emails files and folders in the cloud so they can be accessible from anywhere. Large 50GB mailboxes are as standard with the Email Plan and up to 2TB of storage per license is available. This is one way of not only storing files but sharing easily between team members and external clients if required.
As part of Office 365, Microsoft Teams will also help your staff to work collaboratively whilst remote, and includes features such as instant messaging, video conferencing, team/private chats, meeting scheduling, file sharing and even screen sharing.
Bowker IT can help your business to remain ‘live’, efficient, reduce your over-heads, support your team and keep you ahead of the game.
