The challenge

Finlay James needed a hosting partner to suit its remote-working needs in moving the entire company to remote working; as well as the technical expertise to become an extension of its IT team and a long-term partner to help with its growth.

The solution

FastDesk, UKFast's desktop as a service (DaaS) solution, combines enterprise-grade infrastructure and hosting with Citrix desktop-virtualisation technology to provide a seamless remote desktop experience for Finlay James, regardless of the endpoint device.

Embracing the future of remote working

Finlay James

“When lockdown was announced from the government, thanks to UKFast and the FastDesk platform we didn’t have any challenges when moving the entire business to remote working. All we had to worry about was making sure our employees had a laptop!"

“If we had a priority list of the biggest stresses throughout lockdown for our business, IT challenges would be at the bottom and that’s purely down to UKFast and the FastDesk platform. "

-  James May, Managing Director of Finlay James
