Computors Hosted Desktop

Friendly Care have designed & built care facilities for over twenty five years and operated care homes for 15 years. They provide a hotel style service in a homely environment always putting their residents at the centre of what they do.

With their Head Office in Wolverhampton and a number of Care Homes throughout the Midlands. They approached us for help in consolidating all of their IT systems across all sites into one, centralised system. This would ensure all sites used the same documentation and make revision control much easier than trying to mange documents individually at each site.

We proposed our Computors Cloud – Hosted Desktop solution. This gives all users access to a full Microsoft Server system (Server 2012 R2 in this case) together with all their custom applications, data, users & settings with the advantage that any device can access this system from any location as long as it has secure login credentials and access to an internet connection.

Services Chosen

Facilitated Connectivity

The system utilised a full User Account Control system to ensure all users only have access to specific data locations and applications based on their job role and position.

Other benefits of this system are that there are no utility costs to run your own local server(s) and no capital cost to purchase the hardware and software, just a fixed monthly fee for each user. Physical security is also enhanced as there are no servers at any customer premises to protect and secure.

This package also includes a full Hosted Exchange email system, F-Secure Business Antivirus & Anti-Spam solution and the latest version of Microsoft Office Professional.

We don’t use 3rd part hosting providers, all our servers are installed, maintained and supported by our own in-house IT Engineers and housed in a local, UK based, Tier-3 datacentre. All traffic is 256 bit SSL encrypted and protected by the very latest WatchGuard Firewall solutions.

Friendly Care are delighted with their system, especially the ease in which they can add new locations and users and the way all their applications & data can be shared across all their sites and users instantly & securely.

Costs for his system start from just £30.00/month/user.
