Why SMEs should consider Hosted Desktop

Give me 10 good reasons why I should implement Hosted Desktop


We work with many businesses across the UK to deliver Hosted Virtual Desktop. The majority of those businesses have two things in common: a) they’re predominantly SMEs and b) when they first approached us, they thought we’d turn them away as they’d be far too small to benefit from the service or they simply wouldn’t be able to afford it.

We soon put them right and none of those companies has ever looked back. In fact, most of them tell us they’re unsure how they managed before they made the switch! Therefore, we thought it would be a great idea to share some of the main reasons why all of us here at etiCloud think implementing a Hosted Virtual Desktop is beneficial for almost any SME.


Reason 1: Improved productivity.

Lots of businesses we work with tell us that their internal servers can be slow, leading to time wasted by waiting for documents to download (we’ve all been there so we really do empathise!). By making the move to our Hosted Virtual Desktop you can do away with these issues because we guarantee that our servers run at optimum levels 365 days a year. That means you can get on with the things you need to, quickly, efficiently and at any time of the day or night.


Reason 2: Data Security.

Cyber crime affects thousands of businesses every year and it’s something we should all take extremely seriously. We don’t want you to have to worry about data security, ever. That’s why, with our Hosted Virtual Desktop, we ensure that your data has the highest level of protection against security threats, something an internal server can’t guarantee. We will look after your data as if it were our very own!


Reason 3: Damage Limitation.

If you choose to implement our Hosted Virtual Desktop, it will provide your business with the ideal insurance policy. Why? Because you will always have the most up-to-date systems in place to not only protect your information from hackers, but to provide robust back-up against data loss too. Double whammy.


Reason 4: Constant Updates.

Here at etiCloud, one of the things we like doing is all the hard work so you don’t have to! Our Hosted Virtual Desktop is continually being updated and improved allowing you and your team to focus on the job in hand without worrying about server maintenance, which is pretty boring whichever way you look at it. There, look, we can see productivity increasing already!


Reason 5: Software.

Key to any Hosted Virtual Desktop software is the fact that it really must have all the latest releases and updates to ensure it is protecting and securing your files as efficiently and effectively as possible. At etiCloud we update and patch our Hosted Virtual Desktop software every single day of the year. So, that’s something else you won’t have to worry about.


Reason 6: Backup.

With Hosted Virtual Desktop all of your data and applications are backed up on another server. Yep, that’s right, we’ve always got another server in play. That way, if anything does ever go wrong, your files can be retrieved almost instantaneously. And we know how much of a relief that will be!


Reason 7: Overseas Access.

Now, while we don’t want you never taking a break from the corporate grind, we more than understand how important it is to be in a position where you can work from anywhere you choose. Thanks to Hosted Virtual Desktop that’s exactly what you can expect. At home, in a client’s office, on the beach…wherever you wish. It could also enable you to uncover new opportunities or even branch out into new markets – the world’s your oyster after all!


Reason 8: Tailored packages.

We know that every business is different so it’s our pleasure to be able to design and provide you with a bespoke, Hosted Virtual Desktop to support all your specific business requirements. And, at the same time, by adopting a personalised package, we’ll save you money compared to hosting your own internal server or installing updates.


Reason 9: Money saving.

Hands up, yes, we admit it, this is going to cost you some money. However, although there is an initial outlay, adopting Hosted Virtual Desktop can save you a significant sum over the long-term. There’s no server maintenance to pay for and you will free up space in your office and be in a much better position to grow and expand your business – what’s not to like?


Reason 10: Greener credentials.

More and more of us are increasingly conscious of our impact on our environment, so you’ll be delighted to learn that becoming part of a pre-existing server system with Hosted Virtual Desktop will actually reduce the amount of energy your office uses to run and cool a server. Outsourcing this way will reduce your carbon footprint and ensure you’re doing your little bit to save the environment.
