2015-09_It’s All about Productivity-01

Your users have a job to do, and they won’t let technology stand in their way.  Waiting on long logon times or applications to respond can not only frustrate users, but opens opportunities for costly distractions as they sit idle and unproductive. But the productivity loss doesn’t stop there. Slow logon times can also be a top cause for high helpdesk call volume as well as poor user acceptance of new workspace technologies.

Today’s worker has access to multiple devices that allow them to accomplish their job tasks.  Businesses have to adapt to the changing landscape by allowing their employees to access their networks from anywhere they might be working, on any PC or laptop they have on hand.

A comprehensive User Environment Management (UEM) solution will dramatically improve desktop response times – regardless of PC or workspace, and regardless of OS version. With a more efficient, centralized way of managing profile and application policies, users don’t wait for pieces of their environment to load that they don’t need. In addition, smart controls allocate CPU, memory and disk resources to improve the overall quality of service, increase user density and reduce hardware requirements.

The result? Your users enjoy lightning-fast logon times and have a responsive desktop at all times. So, perhaps they won’t have time to run for that extra cup of coffee or take up a conversation with their co-worker, instead getting down to business right away.

With a workspace, virtual or physical, that’s both optimized for high performance and better IT control, you can eliminate user frustration, driving greater productivity for the user, IT organization and business alike.
