FAQ'S

What is the setup process?

Setup is really straightforward. Once your order is placed, our UK-based team will agree a setup and migration plan with you which suits your business.  

Every plan is unique and we take into account every single one of your requirements to make sure the solution works perfectly for you. We can build the solution alongside your existing environment and agree a go-live date that suits you to manage and minimise downtime. 

Will there be any downtime?

Before starting the setup, we will agree a migration plan and a go-live date. Since our first migration in 2009, we have never experienced a client being unable to work as a result of a Hosted Desktop deployment.  

In the lead-up to the go-live date, we will ensure that we have installed and migrated everything that you need, meaning that when we reach the point of switchover, you can log straight in to the Hosted Desktop and seamlessly carry on with business.  


Can I install my own applications?  

Think of Hosted Desktop as a standard Windows machine in terms of what you can and can’t install. Typically, if an application works in a Windows environment, it will work on our Hosted Desktop. We currently host over 2,000 bespoke applications across the board, including popular apps such as Sage and QuickBooks.  

We will install any applications you need as part of the setup process and will support this moving forward, so you don’t need to worry about a thing.  

What's the difference between RDS & Citrix?  

It really depends on what you need for your business and what your budgets are. RDS has been, and continues to be, used perfectly well for many businesses but Citrix has some distinct advantages including: 

  • It only requires approximately a quarter of the bandwidth RDS needs for the connection
  • It is generall faster than an RDS desktop
  • You can easily stream HD video, and use graphically intense apps with the Citrix desktop
  • You can bolt on our exclusive Two-Factor authenticated login on the Citrix desktop for increased security
