Important Benefits Of Using Remote Desktop Solution Powered By Docstoc
					There are some buzzwords that always drive the businesses and markets. The latest
buzzword is the workforce on the move or a mobile workforce. What this means is
that the companies employ a workforce that is not necessarily sitting in the office
premises during the regular chores. They could be anywhere and are still productive.
One of the best ways to achieve this is through remote desktop solutions.

The remote desktop is a solution in which the personal desktop of the employee can
be accessed remotely. Every employee has a customised desktop where they store
their useful information. They are so used to it that not working on their machine
could even bring down their productivity. With this unique solution, the employee can
access their desktop regardless of their location. Why would an employee want to
work away from the office? One logical reason could be some important work at
home. Whenever an employee have some residential work, they would need to skip
office; this is encouraged too as they need to strike a balance between work and life.
But when an employee needs to stay back, they need not take a day off. With this
innovative solution they can be productive from their homes too. This is great way for
the company to ensure that regular work is not affected due to personal commitments
of the employees. Another important benefit of this solution is in reducing, what was
called the suitcase time. Typically, when a salesperson gets a contract, there is a time
lag from the instant the customer signs the contract till the actual work on the contract
begins. This would range from hours to weeks depending on the work profile of the
salesperson. In the modern competitive world this is blasphemous. The remote access
to desktop can ensure that the suitcase time is reduced to nil, in needed. Remote
access to important company information has always been viewed with suspicion as
there is a chance of a leak. Fortunately, these remote solutions use the best security
solutions available in the industry today, which is the VPN connection. Through the
VPN pipe the remote machine can connect to the employee desktop securely with no
chance of anyone eavesdropping. For the employees this development means that they
can pick their working location and even the working hours. This flexibility helps
them deliver better and get better results. This in turn helps keep their moods and
enthusiasm levels very high.

It is not just the employees who get to work on their terms and conditions, but also the
employers who can make decent monetary savings. With remote access, majority of
the workforce can work from home or some other remote place regularly. This means
lesser inventory, lesser real estate and lesser maintenance costs for the company.

In conclusion, the remote desktop is a new and innovative concept that can help
companies in many ways. This solution offers the employees the option to work from
home allowing them to achieve work and live balance. It also allows the work force to
be mobile and accessible anytime, anywhere. This is fast becoming a key
differentiator in many businesses and markets.
