The ALSO solution for decentralised work in detail

This means that: everything the employees see on their screens is streamed directly from the company to their home office. Apart from where they are located, nothing changes for them. A total of 20 users can access their remote desktop at the same time and therefore work outside of the company premises as standard and regardless of the total number of employees. This costs a user just €30 (list price) per month for 36 months. If the number of access authorisations is not sufficient, the system can, of course, be expanded as required. Versatile, often tailor-made finance models from ALSO can also cover this solution and make getting started even easier. In general, the usual ALSO rental model is used for all solution components.

And if, despite everything, you are still concerned about your data security, you need not worry. This solution offers various security options for extended access control via active directory comparison or multifactor authentication. In addition, common encryption methods such as SSL are used in conjunction with a monitoring and reporting service to further secure the environment.

What works so wonderfully at home with services like Netflix now also brings greater convenience and improved flexibility to the channel in a wider sense.

A legitimate question: are you still working on-site or are you already streaming?

How does the end customer benefit from this solution?

Dynamic developments and unforeseeable circumstances can overwhelm SMEs in particular. There is often not enough time to implement watertight solutions. Following quick installation, the ALSO solution for decentralised work allows you to move to a home office immediately if the circumstances require it. The “main operation” of the infrastructure continues to run on the company premises. It does not matter which end devices employees use at home. This means that day-to-day business can be handled flexibly, so that companies can maintain their business operations in an uncomplicated and cost-effective way, even during difficult times.

Thinking ahead...

Decentralisation of companies and processes is already well underway in many places because it offers many advantages. By using this simple solution, teams can be set up across international borders or large distances, and work together. Developing the in-house skillset by hiring new employees who are not from your neck of the woods can also be achieved with the help of the ALSO solution for decentralised work. In no time at all, SMEs can offer more incentives to attract specialists from a larger catchment area.

Value added for ALSO partners

Once again, the service potential for partners using this ALSO solution is huge. Starting with commissioning of individual components with installation and introductory training, through to support during operation and maintenance, adjustment and expansion. You’re always there! It is also possible to offer this solution within a managed services model and to refine it with your own services.
