Imagine your current desktop arrangement, with all of the files, folders, software, emails, images and data that you use on a daily basis.
A hosted desktop infrastructure allows you and your staff to access all of this 24/7 from any device.
That's whether they’re on the business premises, working from home, visiting a property, commuting between sites or even abroad.
With contracts and sales deals in the estate agency sector being so time-sensitive, knowing that authorised users can view, edit, upload and share crucial information from anywhere brings a huge boost to your levels of productivity and efficiency.
If a sales representative is meeting up with a buyer at the property itself, a hosted desktop will give them access to all of the key data that often pops up during the conversation.
It can be difficult to have all of this info written down, but using their laptop or smartphone they can instantly bring up floor plans, dimensions, energy efficiency reports.
Anything that the buyer may want to know can be accessed right there and then.
If they’re meeting the buyer at your offices, the speed of GoCloud hosted desktops means that viewing virtual tours, drone videography and high-resolution images won’t pose a problem.
Everything loads quickly and efficiently the moment you need it.
Hosted desktops work incredibly well with digital management tools, such as your CRM, automation software, shared calendars, appointment systems, video conferencing applications, Office 365, and scheduling platforms for social media channels and email campaigns.
With the power to access all of this and much more at any time of day from any PC, Mac, Linux machine, laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android or Blackberry, you never have to worry about forgetting to complete a task due to the software not being readily available.
Running and maintaining a cost-effective business model can be hard work.
With a hosted desktop infrastructure from GoCloud, you can dramatically reduce the amount of electricity you use thanks to less pressure on hardware when accessing data, as well as the option to allow employees to use their own devices.
If you currently have your own server, hosted desktops remove the need for this entirely because they’re all stored within our secure UK data centres. This not only lowers your electricity consumption further, but it also eradicates the need for maintenance, upgrades and repairs.
There’s also the option to switch your old PCs with thin clients, which are designed with the sole purpose of accessing hosted desktops via the internet.
This results in them running faster whilst using less power, which is great for both your budget and the environment.
You work with a lot of very sensitive data, information and communications, so you need to know that none of it can be accessed by anyone but registered users.
GoCloud hosted desktops guarantee complete protection through a range of sophisticated security features:
"Using the GoCloud technology is just like sitting in the office anyway, so there's never any loss of work time."
"There were no upfront capital costs, we could save on energy bills, and we could pay for their service monthly."
"The service is incredibly reliable and since working with them we have had a smooth, fast and stable platform."
