With more people working remotely, many businesses are discovering that Desktop as a Service (DaaS) would be a good fit for them. DaaS is an attractive security option because data and applications reside in the cloud, not on your workers’ devices.
There are specific types of businesses that can especially benefit from implementing DaaS. Here are just two examples.
- Financial Firms
Financial firms, including money managers and private equity firms, require highly standardized IT environments to account for data privacy, compliance laws and business continuity processes. Also, they have cyclical crunch times for financial reporting and business acquisitions.Utilizing DaaS supports managing all of these moving pieces while bringing new hires on board quickly since they don’t need to buy or configure new equipment. Employees can access the same DaaS platforms from their devices and freely access custom software, including trading apps securely.
- Property Management Companies & Moving Companies
Most recently, the combination of the coronavirus pandemic, economic uncertainty, and social unrest is prompting waves of Americans to move from large cities to relocate to more sparsely populated areas. The trend has been accelerated by technology and shifting attitudes that make it easier than ever to work remotely. People of all ages and incomes are moving in record numbers to suburban areas and small towns.Real estate and property management companies tend to have operations in multiple cities or states. Accessing cloud-based data from remote locations is vital. DaaS streamlines updating, adding or removing properties. Companies with properties in resort areas and college towns also have bursts of cyclical buyers and renters. DaaS makes it easy for companies to add seasonal workers and contractors and update property and unit status. DaaS can simplify the sharing of logistical coordination of moving vehicle equipment and handle the influx of additional workers.
All businesses have ebbs and flows, and as we move out of the pandemic, we are all trying to forecast the dynamic shifting of workflow, employee staffing and revenues.
One of the many reasons I am proud of my role at iTelecom is that by bringing DaaS and other solutions to our clients, we can help their businesses thrive.
