Hosted Desktop UK - Your office anywhere

Why hosted desktop is perfect for new and growing businesses

Latest government employment figures show that about 40% of those finding jobs over the past year have done so by setting up new businesses and becoming self-employed. Obtaining finance to get any new business off the ground isn’t easy so anything that can be done to reduce start-up costs must be welcome. Using a hosted desktop service is the ideal way for small businesses and sole traders to run their business and office application software on high performance systems without the need to invest large sums on IT hardware. Here are a few reasons why a hosted desktop can benefit new and growing businesses:

  1. No large upfront investment in IT

A hosted desktop is charged on an all-inclusive per user per month basis and requires just a very basic connected device to access it via the internet, all of the data processing is done by your virtual server so you don’t need a high level computer as your local device. A full hosted desktop will include MS Office and Exchange Email and any number of your business application packages.

  1. Full support and no unexpected maintenance costs

With a hosted desktop solution your IT support and server maintenance is all included, software is updated for you as and when required and all IT issues related to your hosted service are resolved for you should they occur. This leaves you free to concentrate on your business and removes the worry of unexpected costs if something goes wrong.

  1. Anywhere access

A hosted desktop can be accessed from anywhere in the world with internet access and a suitably enabled device so you can access you data and email 24/7/365 wherever you might be working. If you start out running your business from home and then move to office premises as you grow all you need do is take your computer/device with you, connect to the internet, and carry on working as normal!

  1. Scalability

Users can be added to or removed from your system with minimal notice – generally within a few hours – it is totally flexible so you only ever need pay for what you use.

  1. Backup of your business critical data

With a hosted system all of your data is backed up on a regular basis and replicated to a second data centre giving peace of mind that your business critical data is safe and available whenever you need it.

  1. Low cost

A full hosted desktop for a single user with MS Office and Email costs just £1.64 per day* (excluding VAT) including all license fees, this is likely to fall through volume discounts as your business grows and your staff numbers increase.
