Hosted Desktops for the Energy Sector

GoCloud hosted desktops help energy companies introduce a brighter way of working.

Hosted Desktops for the Energy Sector

Installing a hosted desktop infrastructure across your energy company is an investment that brings an immediate return on multiple levels. If you’re not sure what a hosted desktop is, it’s simply your usual desktop experience with its files, folders, software and emails, the difference being that it’s all hosted in our secure UK data centres.

This enables all staff to continue working as normal, with the added advantage of numerous features that are part and parcel of the technology. Below are some of the key benefits that will apply the moment your GoCloud hosted desktops are installed.

A greener way of working

Let’s start with something that’s great for all types of businesses but is particularly relevant for energy suppliers.

Hosted desktops use less electricity and are more environmentally friendly, which are huge ticks for a utility company that wants to lead by example through sustainable systems and eco-friendly practices.

The reason for this significant reduction of energy consumption is that a hosted desktop can be accessed from any device via the internet.

This removes the need for bulky servers on your site, which aside from using tons of electricity themselves also require a severely air conditioned environment around the clock.

There’s also the option to replace old hardware with thin clients, which are specially designed to access hosted desktops through an online connection.

Due to the pressure on this equipment being significantly lower, it uses a lot less energy than your current arrangement.

Reduce your overheads

When you choose hosted desktops, you’re giving all of your employees the option to work on any device from anywhere at any time.

If you’re able to offer remote working opportunities, having staff work from home even only occasionally can help you to reduce office costs.

This comes from savings on everything from utilities, provisions, stationery, and printing to any and every expense that you usually reimburse.

Work faster, better and more efficiently

GoCloud hosted desktops are all about performance.

This doesn’t simply apply to our own technology and technical support, as we also enable your staff to achieve more on a daily basis.

Hosted desktops are fast, reliable, accessible and built for precision, so you’ll no longer have to worry about data and files being incomplete, corrupted or misplaced.

Likewise, you can bid farewell to the age-old problem of multiple employees working on the same files and databases, only to then have inconsistent versions that need amalgamating and then going over with a fine-tooth comb.

Thanks to documents being stored in our UK data centres rather than on individual hardware, co-workers can collaborate on documents simultaneously, keeping edits and comments in one place.

Last but by no means least, the speed and extremely high uptime of GoCloud’s hosted desktops enables the ability to work at any time of day or night, without the frustration and disruption of clunky and unresponsive systems.

This is a huge advantage to many departments, but especially those revolving around customer service and tech support.

Security and compliance

Energy suppliers create and store an incredible amount of data, much of which is confidential.

You don’t want your sensitive company files and customer information being leaked out, damaged by malware or accessed by unapproved parties, so you can rest assured that we’ve placed data protection at the heart of our hosted desktops.

Preventing everything from viruses and hackers to GDPR breaches and unauthorised staff accessing confidential files, the following security measures will give you complete peace of mind:

  • 256-bit encryption
  • Market-leading antivirus software
  • Two-factor authentication
  • ISO 27001 certification
  • An isolated Citrix/Windows environment that keeps all of your data on individual hardware
