Extra-Benefits of HTML5 Client for Businesses

It’s hard to believe how much technology has changed the way we work. According to Gallup, 37% of U.S. workers say they have telecommuted- that’s a dramatic increase from the just 9% who reported the same back in 1995.

Technology is enabling us to become more mobile, making our offices no bigger than what we carry in our bag. With a quick tap of a finger, we have the ability to connect with our colleagues and clients, and share reports and proposals without leaving home. Mobile technologies and BYOD offer many companies- start-ups, small to midsize businesses, and even enterprises- the remote access technology they need to overcome mobility challenges and accelerate growth. However, remote access technologies are doing much more to empower development in companies. Businesses that embrace BYOD and remote work have some clear benefits in mind:

Gain efficiency for employees

Since it doesn’t need any installation, the HTML5 Remote Desktop client allows employees to access their applications and desktops from their remote location. According to a 2015 survey, employees are able to work with greater efficiency while they are off-site and are generally more motivated to demonstrate off-site effectiveness. Also, 77% report greater productivity while remote working, 30% accomplish more in less time, and 52% are less likely to take time off when working remotely—even when sick!

Gain long-term, highly motivated employees

HTML5 Remote Desktop client helps companies provide a friendlier environment for their employees and a great way to retrieve work-life balance. According to the same survey, respondents indicated a clear financial motive in working remotely, with 30% reporting savings of as much as $5,240 per year- simply accounting for expenses. Half of them also say being able to work remotely at least some of the time makes them much more likely to stay with the company.

Gain access to talent

Companies that support distributed teams can hire the best people- no matter where they live. They have access to a global pool of professionals that can perfectly fit with experience, skills, and culture.

Mitigate Risks

An HTML5 Remote Desktop client ensures business and workforce continuity in any scenario by providing users with seamless, secure access to mission-critical resources from any device, anywhere. Companies dramatically reduce the risk of sensitive data loss by centrally hosting data, rather than storing it on user devices.

HTML5 Remote Desktop access clients are becoming more popular for delivering virtual desktop access to remote employees because they offer a simpler approach for both IT and end users.  IT administrators don't need to install client software locally on users' PCs or other devices. Administrators don't have to worry about securing data locally on users' personal devices and employees can access their corporate data from anywhere.
