A hosted desktop solution removes the need for a physical PC, and frees you to access your data and applications across the Internet. It means your vital data is hosted in 'the cloud' at our secure, world-class data centre.
Cloud desktop does away with the expensive and power-hungry PC in the workplace. It saves you money - more than 30% for a typical charity user - and makes you more flexible and agile, freeing your people to work on virtually any Internet connected device.
It provides more secure and reliable computing, eases IT support issues, and you can add and remove users at will, so it's ideal for charities with high staff turnover or seasonal variations.

Charities and non-profit organisations are under constant pressure to make the most of precious resources and achieve more at less cost. Making staff more productive is the ideal way to accomplish this, and cloud computing is one of the keys to delivering more efficient ways to work.
Windows Server 2012 has made cloud solutions such as hosted desktop more effective than ever. They are easier to set up and manage and therefore more cost effective, saving money for charities so your resources go further. Ultimately, it is simpler, more cost-effective IT that makes your people more productive and your organisation more agile.
