According to a December 2010 survey by Cisco, employees value flexibility and mobility more than ever. Sixty percent of those surveyed didn’t believe they needed to be on site to do their jobs effectively, and a whopping two-thirds (66%) said they’d accept lower-paying jobs in order to have more flexibility.

One of the easiest ways to give employees what they want is to make computer desktops easier for users by configuring remote access. According to many technology experts, it is one of the most underutilized technologies on the market today, even though it’s been around for quite a while.

Three Benefits of Remote Desktop Access

1. Anywhere Access: With just a standard internet connection and some basic desktop sharing software, a user can gain access to another computer and operate just as if they were in the office.

2. Workspace Management: Because you can access and send files between computers, you don’t have to worry about things like creating duplicate copies if you’re going to be on the road or at home with a sick child, for example.

You can still prepare your presentation and send it between systems with ease. This keeps your workflow in sync without worrying about things like if you have the most up to date version, or not. Workspace management is an essential piece to making it easier for users.

3. File Sharing: Remote access allows you to share files with other users, which make things like teleconferencing and online meetings a breeze.

Today’s employees want it all – workplace flexibility and mobility, coupled with life balance. And luckily, the technology is available to give it to them.

In essence, when you make computer desktops easier for users by deploying technology like remote access, you allow “the show to go on,” while allowing your employees to have more of a personal life. And in today’s competitive 24/7/365 global economy, that’s exactly the edge you need.
