As consumers, we live in a digitally connected world, where we have every device, app and bit of information we need at our fingertips. The same should be true at work. However, research shows us that employee engagement is impeded by a digital experience that is far from smooth.

So why the disconnect?

What is it that makes our work life so disconnected and complex when the rest of our digital lives are, well, so simple? Sadly, we all know the answers. The legacy apps are on-prem. The CRM and productivity apps are on public clouds. Proprietary apps are sitting in a private cloud managed by the IT team. And don’t get me started on the number of places that our data and information is stored. Listing those could take days!

If it seems like we all spend a big chunk of our day switching between apps and digging around for info, it’s because that’s what we actually do! In fact, a recent study found that the average employee spends only 43% of their time concentrating on their core competencies.

Citrix Workspace can help solve this problem.

For employees, it doesn’t matter if they use 10 apps or 50 to do their jobs, what matters is being able to access and connect to them simply and efficiently. The same goes for data. If the info people need to do their jobs was all in one easy-to-access place, well, just imagine how much more productive we could all be?

That’s what Workspace can deliver, and more. Here are just a few of the most popular features that employees love:

One Dashboard – Citrix Workspace enables employees to run multiple applications and desktops simultaneously.

Single Sign-On (SSO) With SSO, Workspace users can securely access all apps, desktops and files from their computers or devices with one password. This function is supported across all mobile, SaaS and web apps.

Secure Remote Access – Geographically diverse employees can easily connect to vital apps and data, whether they are working from home, from an airport or from the client’s office in Zurich.

Follow Me Sessions Employees can move between devices and automatically connect to all of their sessions just by signing in. They access work seamlessly as they move from their desks to the conference room or from mobile devices to laptops.

But it’s not just employees that get the love. IT teams can take advantage of these cool features (so they can get more done, too):

End-to-End Security – Admins can improve network security, identity management, and web filtering thanks to a Secure Digital Perimeter.

Single Administrative Console – IT teams can manage all functions of Citrix Workspace from a single console, whether deployed on public, private or hybrid clouds.

Performance Across Constrained Networks – Network admins can deliver optimum access to available networks, no matter how Citrix workloads are delivered to users.

So do you think your workforce—and your admins—could benefit from Citrix Workspace? Start by asking these simple questions:

  • Do you want a way to better engage your employees?
  • Do you want to increase productivity across the organization?
  • Do you want to make the lives of your IT team easier?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Citrix Workspace might be the answer. To learn more about the incredible benefits a modern digital workspace like Citrix Workspace can bring to your organization, check out this e-book.
