Be ready for disruption

Empower your remote workforce with ready-to-go managed apps and desktops

Is your company looking for new ways to support a remote workforce? If so, you’re far from alone. Telework technology is being adopted at record rates, with downloads of popular business apps rising nearly five-fold in the wake of global events that have forever changed how corporations work1. But as many organizations are learning, cobbling together incidental apps at random can lead to all kinds of unintended consequences: less productivity, a poor user experience, increased security risks…and the list goes on. You need the right remote work solution—one that lets you fully embrace work as a thing employees do, and not merely a place people go. That way, when the unexpected hits, you’ll have all the right resources firmly in place.

Continue work uninterrupted

There’s no telling when a weather incident, virus outbreak or other unanticipated event may impact your business next. A sudden surge in the need for remote work capabilities can hit at any time, for all kinds of reasons. As soon as that happens, you’ll need a way to empower offsite employees quickly and reliably. With a turnkey desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) solution as part of your business continuity plan, you can rest assured you’ll be ready for anything. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Standard for Azure has everything you need to quickly deliver virtual apps and desktops to any user, anywhere—without sacrificing security or hindering the employee experience.

Be ready to react fast

In some industries, empowering employees to work from home is key to keeping businesses operational. In others, disruptions can increase the need to onboard temporary staff—and whittle a weeks-long hiring process down to less than a day2. No matter how your business is impacted, the implications are the same: Any time there’s a sudden surge in demand, you need a way to react fast and recover quickly. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Standard offers a pay-as-you-go solution for delivering apps and desktops from the cloud—to any device, anywhere, at any time. There’s no need to build out a robust back-end infrastructure. Simply pay for what you use, when you use it. No matter what challenges may come your way.

Keep the experience consistent

In the rush to get remote workers up-and-running fast, many companies turn to the first solutions they see...only to discover later that the employee experience is less than ideal. Any big shifts in this area can lead to long learning curves and unwanted down times. Which is why it's so important to maintain consistent access to familiar apps and desktops, even in the midst of disruption. With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Standard, you can ensure your teams will have the same high-definition experience at home that they’ve come to expect elsewhere. It’s the simplest, fastest way to securely deliver virtual apps and desktops when employees are unable to get access at a corporate location.
