Central management means you pick one person or one IT department to be in charge of configuring all users' virtual desktops and settings. A locally procured workstation with Internet access is all that is necessary for them to set up The Sixth Flag. This significantly saves time and reduces technical support costs at remote facilities. Upgrades to your corporate software or new programs can be installed and thoroughly tested with no impact to existing operations.
The Sixth Flag (TSF) allows you to manage user access to many workspace features, simply through their user info. Read more about the many functions available with the TSF virtual desktop...
New users can be provisioned in minutes, not days or weeks. Spin up virtual desktops on demand. New applications can be delivered to all users in a matter of minutes, instead of weeks. In the case of application issues, upgrades can be rolled back immediately to prevent loss of productivity.
The Sixth Flag offers a WindowsTM desktop completely as a service. This allows for flexibility based on your changing needs and use of multiple devices. The WindowsTM Desktop is fully rendered in the internet browser window. There are no applications to download or install on the users' devices in order to access their virtual desktops. Therefore, they can log in using any operating system (PC, Mac, Linux).
Using a completely HTML-rendered desktop also makes it much easier to design plugins for your network.
Access your account on any computer, laptop, tablet, or other device that has internet access. The only requirement is a current internet browser. User desktops follow the user, not the device. Employee devices can be procured locally or by each individual saving you from shipping costs or time lost from equipment quarantined in customs.
Users' devices never need to be handled by you since the company software and security settings are centrally managed in the cloud.
Corporate technology departments must remain flexible in resource allocation, yet a significant part of the overall budget is the capital outlay towards corporate desktops, forcing technology staff to continuously support one-off solutions to meet emerging requirements. With The Sixth Flag, organizations can deploy custom corporate virtual desktops to seasonal or augmentation staff with little or no concern for hardware asset management issues.
Temporary and contract workers get access to corporate network resources through their user account. No matter the duration, temporary and contract workers can use their own hardware and still perform their work. Asset tracking and recovery, shared terminals, and kiosks become a thing of the past.
