If you had to describe today’s workforce in one word, it would undoubtedly be “mobile.” Once considered a management nightmare, offsite flexibility is quickly becoming the new normal for professional services firms—fueled, in part, by statistics that show working from home boosts productivity.
Between 2014 and 2015, the number of devices managed in the enterprise increased 72%, prompting a shift toward secure, streamlined workforce mobility solutions.
The digital transformation has given way to an increasing number of remote employees and “supertemps”—skilled lawyers and other professionals who opt for remote, contract work. But it’s not just the number of remote workers that’s exploding. Between 2014 and 2015, the number of devices managed in the enterprise increased 72%, prompting a shift toward secure, streamlined workforce mobility solutions.
Why should your firm consider a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution? Here’s why your employees, your IT department and your firm’s leadership will be singing its praises.
Easy access and sharing—from anywhere
Gone are the days of endless troubleshooting, complicated logins and incompatible files. The best DaaS solutions give your firm’s employees single-click access to their desktop and all their mobile, SaaS and Windows apps. With this streamlined system in place, your employees can share and sync files with ease, and enjoy seamlessly integrated email. The result? A more efficient workforce that spends time on billable tasks, not remote access issues.
Security and full IT control
Cybersecurity is one of the key issues facing professional services firms today. However, leading DaaS solutions are designed specifically with your security in mind. While your employees are working efficiently, your IT team has the ability to gain full control over their desktop and mobile devices. This means that they can actively monitor security issues, provide full support and configuration capabilities, and more.
Hosting your firms important applications, data and computing off-site provides peace of mind in knowing your information and business is safe, no matter what. DaaS solutions enable your team to work anywhere and from any device to keep your business moving forward, without skipping a beat.
