Here are 10 reasons why I believe Lucidity’s Managed Desktop offers the best technology of its kind in New Zealand.
1. No need to install any software
If you have a Windows PC, you’ll be able to connect to the Managed Desktop without needing to install anything. This platform has been built on native windows – this means it’s easier to get up and running and even easier if you need to connect from a different PC.
2. Better multi-screen support
If you have multiple monitors, you’ll find the Managed Desktop behaves in a similar manner to your local PC.
3. Better logon times
On some remote desktops, some users find that logon times can at times been slow. With Lucidity’s Managed Desktop, we have changed how profile information is stored and now you will find login times are FAST.
4. More customisable
We’ve made it easier for you to personalise and change your Managed Desktop. All this information is stored in your profile.
5. More Secure
We have market leading Fortinet firewalls protecting your Managed Desktop – all desktop traffic is encrypted via SSL encryption and all core infrastructure is on Windows 2016 server – architected from the ground up to provide better security.
We’ve gone for gold with the hardware – our core network in Hamilton runs at 56 GBPS, Storage is 100% solid state and servers have the latest Intel v4 CPU’s.
7. Designed for Office 365
The Managed Desktop integrates with the Office 365 E3 plan – your same identity will get you to your desktop and to your Office 365 services.This also means that every user gets the ability to install Office on upto 5 additional devices.
8. Scale Up or down
Capacity can be added for your company in minutes – desktop servers are provisioned on demand without needing any engineering effort.
9. Looks like Windows 10
Managed Desktop looks and feels like Windows 10 – this means it’s easy to use, it feels more visually appealing and modern.
10. Works with pens and fingers
If you have a touch screen laptop or tablet, you’ll also find that the new desktop behaves in much the same way when responding to touch via pen or fingers.
