The BIBA Judges Were Here…..

Exciting times in the Gconnect office today with the visit from The BIBA judges! This was the final judging in the Micro Business of the Year award before the ceremony in September.  It was great to be able to meet some of the judges in person, and show them a little more about how we work.  Being a tech company, it’s sometimes hard to explain to people exactly what we do, so it was fantastic to be able to show the lovely ladies around and demonstrate some of our work.


That’s it now until the ceremony in September, which we are all attending (look out for the excitable geek crew, that’ll be us!) This will be our first awards experience as a company, we’ve been over the moon to make it so far, and the chance to celebrate this with all the other entrants is the icing on the cake!


To all the finalists, good luck and we’ll see you in Blackpool!

Summer Is Here, Need A Cloud?

Now that summer has finally arrived, how many of you would relish the idea of working from home, perhaps there are some of you who would even like to work from the local park?  How about for those with kids, who would like to work from home through the summer holidays?

With Citrix solutions, provided by Gconnect, all of this and more is possible! As long as you have an internet connection and a compatible device (laptop, smart phone, tablet) you can have full access to your desktop, all its programs and files allowing you to work as though you are at your desk!

Being able to work from anywhere isn’t the only benefit of virtualised desktops.  Many companies are turning to hosted desktops not only as a way to mobilise workers, but as a way to reduce IT expenditure, save time and streamlining their operations.

No Upfront Expenditure

With hosted desktops, there is no need to purchase an expensive server.  Simply sign up, download the Citrix client and away you go!

Secure Your Information

All your important files and information are no longer stored on your local device, but housed on enterprise class, secure and reliable servers which stand behind our top level firewalls in a dedicated, UK based data centre, further protected by being backed up to a second secure location.  Should the worst happen and your device fails, is lost or stolen you need not worry about losing critical information.  Simply access a new device, log on and your desktop is right back with you.

Save Time & Money on IT

Companies can refocus their IT departments on more important tasks, or reduce the need for an in house department altogether, as once virtualised we take care of all routine maintenance, updates and issues.  Desktop support comes with the package, but for further peace of mind, those with time critical business needs can purchase our comprehensive support package for those times when extra support is required.

Fast Deployment & Flexible Terms

Need a new desktop quickly? Is your business expanding? With our solutions you can have a new desktop up and running in no time at all, again without having to outlay large upfront costs. With no long term contracts to sign into, you can plan for busier periods, seasonal staff fluctuations and more without worrying about being tied up for 12 months!
