This Client Needed Reliable Remote Capabilities
IT resources have never been as important as now, as most professionals work from home. For organizations like this one to stay connected and productive while working remotely, they need the right technologies and processes in place.
Due to how quickly the pandemic developed, many organizations could not prepare for the shift to a remote work setting. Doing so would have required careful planning, methodical execution of new processes, and expert implementation of new technologies.
This became an issue for this manufacturing firm. Unfortunately, a custom app they relied on for work had been running slowly for users at remote sites. The application loaded very slowly when an employee worked remotely or at another location.
Compatibility was also an issue. Keeping up with updates was challenging, with multiple employees running the application across various devices. Some users were running on a current application version, but others were months out of date. The possibility that a difference caused a miscommunication was growing by the day.
Some users used complicated workarounds, such as dedicated PCs in the head office that ran the software faster. But this would not scale – multiple users could not simultaneously work on the software. The staff had to juggle schedules for when specific employees could access applications. Employees had to contact other employees to ensure they had logged off, so the next employee could log in.
The client knew they needed to solve this problem, or it would keep slowing down their operation and affecting their bottom line.
How Servcom USA Solved This Client’s Problem
Our team knew the perfect solution for this client’s needs as Microsoft Remote Desktop Services.
This remote configuration gave them access to and control over a given computer from any configured device in any location. By accessing their custom app through RDS, they’d be able to return to the system speeds they enjoyed in the office.
Known in the past as “Terminal Services,” Remote Desktop Services is a “component of Microsoft Windows that allows a user to take control of a remote computer or virtual machine over a network connection.
It gives this company’s users the capability to have the same computing experience whether using their in-office work computer or while remote working at home or on the go.
Users have the same access no matter where they are, as they can utilize their work-related applications, access their files and data that are stored on the network, and do everything else they would be able to do in the office. This ensured they would have a high-performance and secure way to continue working remotely long term.
