The Hosted Desktop solution
GoCloud provide a hosted server and two hosted desktops to Barclay Jones. As long as they have an internet connection they have access to their entire business.
The GoCloud helpdesk is available around the clock and I.T. technicians monitor the infrastructure at all times, which ensures that any problems are identified and dealt with quickly.

“We are extremely happy with the service we get from GoCloud. They have enabled us to tour the UK and operate from any of our clients’ sites, a service station or even Starbucks! As long as there’s an internet connection we can get on with our work just by launching the GoCloud infrastructure.
They represent really good value, give a great service and their technical support is excellent. In fact, they will let us know if there has been a “blip” and what they have done to rectify the problem, even if we weren't aware that there was an issue in the first place.
By not having to buy a physical server we immediately saved money because there were no upfront capital costs. It also makes it very easy for us to forecast the expansion of our business because by having a monthly fee, we can manage our cash flow better.
We always consider the environmental impact of I.T. solutions when developing strategies with our own clients, so the “green credentials” that cloud computing offers is also very important to us.”
Wayne suggests the key benefits of cloud computing and the hosted desktop are:
The ability to work from anywhere in the UK, without interruption.
No capital outlay to buy an expensive server.
Being able to leave GoCloud to manage our I.T. infrastructure, so that we can just get on with working
Fantastic disaster recovery plan, so that if we couldn't access our office for any reason, we’d still be able to continue running our business.
Easy to budget monthly payment for improved cashflow
