How We Keep Things Working Smoothly
Coordinating Your Computers
What Happens Without Desktop and Workstation Management
Employee A uses one type of computer and operating system, but Employee B uses a different one. When your employees are all on different machines, it’s hard to keep things up to date across the board. Someone is always lagging (sometimes literally) behind someone else.
A new employee is hired and they are assigned a computer, but there’s a problem: no one knows how to set it up. Your on-call IT person can’t get to you for a week, wouldn’t it be great to have a company proactively manage computer configuration for you?
A piece of software needs a patch… or is it an upgrade? Anyway, something happened and now nobody can get the software to work, or even worse: everyone was running an old anti-virus program and they were tricked into installing malware instead of an update. How could this have been prevented?
Take a look at some of the ways that workstation and desktop management is an important, cost effective business solution to painful IT problems.
Benefits of Workstation and Desktop Management
Don’t rely on an outside IT firm that comes in and fixes things when they’re already broken or worse, that employee who’s “good at computers”.
Benefits of workstation and desktop management include:
All employees are operating on the same system and hardware.
The computers are configured by someone who knows what they’re doing.
No unpredicted downtime and loss of business.
