There’s a lot of data that comes with running a law firm, all of which has to be instantly accessible whilst protected against mishaps.
By choosing hosted desktops from GoCloud, you gain the peace of mind that every document, spreadsheet, email and piece of data is backed up daily in our robust UK data centres.
Meanwhile, in the event of your hardware malfunctioning, your authorised users can access their password protected desktops from any device with an internet connection, enabling solicitors and other employees to continue as normal.
We then have business continuity, which is a requirement of the Law Society’s Lexcel accreditation.
Even in the event of a flood, fire, natural disaster, system failure or theft, you know that all of your data is safely stored on our robust and secure servers, enabling your business to meet and surpass all legal practice management standards.
Due to hosted desktops presenting each user with their usual desktop experience, your solicitors and office staff can work from anywhere at any time.
This doesn’t just mean home working, as hosted desktops give you the opportunity to work from a client’s site, whilst attending events, during your commute and even when you’re in court.
Rather than wasting time loading sensitive files to a USB stick or transferring them to a laptop, a hosted desktop allows you to take your virtual desktop everywhere you go and access it on a PC, Mac, Linux machine, laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android or Blackberry.
This greatly increases productivity and consistency, as there are no lost working hours due to lack of access to files and a complete absence of data security risks.
Data-heavy businesses often reach their limit and the system becomes clunky and unreliable.
To rectify the situation, some law practices decide to delete files that are deemed nonessential, which may actually be needed in the future.
The problem of hitting the data cap then occurs again, most probably sooner if your business is growing at a steady rate.
This is a completely unnecessary problem that is eliminated by hosted desktops.
We store everything you need and we will never run out of space, so your company can store as much data as required with the added benefit of it all being protected by the following security features:
Having all of your data stored in one secure place is also excellent for GDPR compliance – another tick box when it comes to client confidentiality and data privacy.
Last but certainly not least, hosted desktops can help you to reduce numerous costs, including those associated with software licenses, data storage, electricity consumption, IT support (our technicians are on hand as part of the service) and the constant maintaining, repairing and upgrading of on-site servers that have now been rendered superfluous.
