The indirect cost savings of a hosted desktop

By using a hosted desktop service, your business stands to see increases in productivity, efficiency, collaboration and security. But, when budgets are tight, one of the critical challenges when looking to invest in any new technology is that of cost.

Of course, there are direct cost savings to be had with a hosted desktop. For example with the hosted desktop you can tap into a tried and tested system that is ready to use, customisable to your business, and which works with your existing IT and software. So you don’t have to worry about pricey setup costs.

At the same time, if you don’t have to maintain any on-premise servers you don’t have to worry about employing the right people with the right skills to manage your IT. Furthermore, you won’t have to pay for licences or expensive maintenance contracts. Also, you only ever pay for what you need.

Furthermore, at Cloud Geeni, our cloud-based hosted desktops are provided on a subscription basis. This means that they are an operating expenditure and provide a more stable cash flow than traditional IT arrangements.

But what about the more indirect cost savings?

Reduced IT burden

With a cloud-based hosted desktop, if a device fails, getting you up and running on a new computer is easy. So there is less time wasted time re-installing all the necessary software.

What’s more, our cloud-based hosted desktops come with UK based technical support as part of your monthly subscription. So you will benefit from a reduction in internal IT helpdesk calls and firefighting. This means your IT team spend less time dealing with the day-to-day user issues, and more time on those tasks that help you to grow and make money.

Reduced energy costs

If you don’t have on-site servers, you don’t need to pay for the electricity and air-conditioning necessary to cool your server room.

Reduced upgrade costs

With upgrades made automatically, you are free from the burden of maintaining sophisticated hardware and software.

But, a cloud-based hosted desktop won’t just save you money, it can also boost your bottom line.

Improved uptime

With a cloud-based hosted desktop from Cloud Geeni, you get 99.9% uptime guaranteed. So you don’t have to worry about disruptive downtime and the toll of lost business hours. You can maximise all your working time.

Improved productivity

The cloud-based hosted desktop helps to make your employees – and therefore your business – more productive. Indeed, by reducing instances of duplication and improving collaboration, the hosted desktop helps everyone to work smarter. By streamlining and consolidating work functions across devices, this saves you a lot of time. And, of course, time is money.

Improved innovation

Cloud-based software providers continuously improve their solution at no extra cost to you. This helps you to stay current, agile, and competitive.

Reduced cost of risk

A cloud-based hosted desktop can help to keep your data safe. This reduces the likelihood of a data breach and the impact this could have on your business (both on a day-to-day level during the crisis and any long term reputational damage.). However, to protect your business, be sure to undertake due diligence to ensure your provider understands what’s needed to ensure GDPR compliance and avoid risking hefty fines.
