Charity Cloud Premium Desktop includes everything in the core Cloud Desktop service, plus the ability to add Microsoft Lync for unified communications.
As with our core Cloud Desktop service, users can access data and applications from virtually any Internet connected device, including 'thin client' monitors, laptops, tablets and even smartphones.
Users enjoy the familiar Windows 7 look and feel, withMicrosoft Office applications, Outlook email and other applications as a hosted service. The bandwidth requirements of a hosted desktop solution are negligible, so it's a practical and reliable solution to modern computing needs.
Add virtually any applications you need and publish them to the user desktop using Virtual Application Hosting, a dedicated hosted server (each include additional charges) or even from your own in-house server.
Cloud desktop saves significant amounts of money compared to the traditional PC or in-house servers - more than 30% for a typical charity user. There are few if any up-front costs and your computing expenditure is moved from a capital to a revenue expense. You also benefit from charity pricing on Microsoft products.
Microsoft Lync combines instant messaging, VoIP calling, live meetings, and videoconferencing. It integrates with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office, bringing user presence information to Outlook and SharePoint team sites and allowing instant messages and phone calls to be started with a click.
Microsoft Lync gives users real-time presence information, including photos, availability, and location together with enhanced instant messaging to help them connect more efficiently and effectively.
