If users have their own computers in the office, we can set up a direct connection from a home computer or laptop into their office PC.
This allows each user to work as they normally would in the office, with access to everything they normally have. From documents (whether locally or stored on a server) to the office internet connection (for cases where you have certain services locked down to a Public IP Address).
You simply log into the office PC using Remote Desktop, and it’ll be as if you’re sitting right in front of your PC.
A VPN can be used to connect you into the office for cases where you normally work from a laptop (for example) and just need to access data stored on your server – a VPN will run either from your server or from your router.
Once you are connected to the VPN, it connects your computer or laptop to the internal network so you are able to access the server (and/or other computers) as if you are sitting in the office.
This option also works for any third-party software you have that may run on your server (Sage for example) but this is also dependant on the software itself. There a very few cases where the software vendor does not allow/support this.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements and get set up what you need.
