Coronavirus Work From Home

Coronavirus: hosted desktops will help employees work from home.

As the Coronavirus continues to spread across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US, many companies are encouraging remote working as a precautionary measure against the rapidly-spreading virus. The UK government’s chief medical adviser, Prof Chris Whitty has said people who show “even minor” signs of respiratory tract infections or fever will soon be told to self-isolate.

Many businesses are now asking how can employees effectively work from home when they are away from the office environment? How can we continue to serve our customers and run our business with so many employees away from their desks?
