The term “cottage industry” meant work done within the home for sale in the marketplace. Today, the cottage could be anything from a park bench to the beach and home could be anywhere that is not tied down. The virtual desktop is anywhere its owner is wandering at the moment.
Traveling For Business
Lately, traveling for business is taking on a new meaning. It could be 50 feet away in your office at home or a trip to the closest coffee bar, depending upon the type of business you conduct. A seminar, workshop or conference means interacting by webcam or skype on your laptop while sitting beside the pool working on your tan.
A virtual desktop actually lowers the cost of doing business and helps to retain clients in the process. There is no need to be away from the office or let clients know that you are unavailable when they need you most. Information that you need is instantly available through any mobile device allowing you to stay on top of business without being on top of business.
The Plus-Size of Virtual Business
Many advantages come with your virtual desktop and “lower cost” is only one of them. A few of the most important plus-size benefits include:
• Preservation of data in the face of a system crash
• Disaster recovery after a man-made or natural disaster
• Business continuity when no one else can open their doors
• Data back-up on a regular – and often automatic – basis
• Higher level of security for business information
Information about clients cannot be compromised if a laptop is lost or stolen. Proprietary data remains intact and secure. All of these benefits mean that your choice of device does not even need a keyboard. Therefore, it can be as small or as large as you need it to be.
