Hosted Desktops for Recruitment Agencies

GoCloud hosted desktops help recruitment companies place more candidates by giving them the freedom to work from anywhere.

Hosted Desktops for Recruitment Agencies

Whatever the size of a business within the recruitment sector, it has a lot of data to deal with. This takes the form of everything from information on candidates and an employer database, to the company payroll and details related to courses and qualifications, all of which needs to be as accessible as it is secure.

Without a fast, capable and reliable IT infrastructure, recruiters can easily be faced with sluggish systems and incomplete data that costs both time and money. Hosted desktops are the most effective way to eradicate these risks, plus they also come with a variety of other benefits that will help you to do business more efficiently.

What are hosted desktops?

Each member of your team needs a computer in order to communicate with companies, advertise jobs, keep track of each candidate’s progress, and deliver a high-quality recruitment service on a daily basis.

Hosted desktops offer your usual desktop experience, yet all of the information is stored in GoCloud’s secure data centres that are monitored around the clock to ensure 99.9% uptime.

By investing in hosted desktops, all of your staff can access their individual accounts from any device with an internet connection.

This means that if they’re out of the office or don’t have access to their usual computer for another reason, they can instantly load their desktop on another device, including a PC, Mac, Linux machine, laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android or Blackberry.

Whether they’re in a meeting, at a client’s offices, attending a jobs fair, running a recruitment drive off-site or want to check and edit files whilst on the move, they have access to everything they need no matter where they are.

Reduce admin hours and costs

Constant access to all of their files makes recruitment teams more agile and productive, which can help a business to strengthen its cash flow and profit margins.

Meanwhile, due to hosted desktops using far less electricity than traditional versions, you can cut down your company’s utility bills and carbon footprint simultaneously.

All of your software is also updated automatically, removing those wasted hours that accumulate when you have multiple staff waiting for an application to download the latest version.

You can even minimise the costs associated with printing and stationery, as the mobile nature of hosted desktops takes away the need for unnecessary paperwork, which again is good for the planet too.

Keep your data safe

With so much confidential and sensitive information held by your recruitment business, you need to be extremely careful that it doesn’t get leaked, damaged or fall into the wrong hands.

This kind of incident is a very high risk when you take into account circumstances such as hardware failure, power cuts, a flood, fire or natural disaster, computer viruses, hackers, and even members of staff having more admin rights than their roles justify.

With hosted desktops, everything is stored safely in our UK data centres and each user accesses their own desktop through a password.

The key factor is that the files, folders, software, emails and so on aren’t stored on the devices themselves, greatly reducing the chance of a data breach.

As well as being an excellent method of achieving total GDPR compliance, hosted desktops offer the following security features for complete peace of mind:

  • 256-bit encryption
  • Fantastic antivirus software
  • Two-factor authentication
  • ISO 27001 certification
  • All of your software and licenses are updated automatically
  • An isolated Windows environment, which stores your data separately
