Yes, You Can Run Resource-Heavy Applications Via Remote Desktop

If you’ve ever had a user tell you their remote access to resource-heavy applications just doesn’t work, read on.

PROBLEM:

When Your Users Can’t Remotely Access Resource-Heavy Applications

Construction project delays can cost companies up to 20% more than the original estimated cost.

A leading regional fencing contractor faced a not-so-unique challenge. Often, their contractors would need to make changes to CAD-like drawings in the evenings in preparation for the next day’s work.

The problem? Accessing CAD applications using legacy remote desktop services did not work. The latency experienced made the applications inoperable and forced its contractors to drive to the office to make the modifications after a work-heavy day or wait until the next day to make the modifications.

Waiting for the next day — which happened more times than not — caused delays in the project, which in turn caused delays in all areas of the project, including revenue collection.

IMPACT:

Missed Deadlines, Costly Project Delays, and Frustrated Customers

When construction crews have to wait for modified design drawings, work slows down. The impact isn’t felt as much in small projects as in large commercial projects.

With extensive commercial projects, any delay damages the reputation of the contractor — impacting not only existing business but future projects based on reputational damage.

OUTCOME:

A Latency-Free Remote Solution to Resource-Heavy Applications

Needing a solution that didn’t require massive IT infrastructure overhauls and support, the regional fencing contractor chose TruGrid SecureRDP and had their contractors operational in hours — not days.

For less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day, the regional fencing contractor was able to eliminate all project delays caused by technical restrictions. “Well worth the cost of a Caffè Americano,” said its regional director of operations.

  • Full-time remote employees
  • The employee that needs to work remotely for a day
