Workspot Modern VDI for Retail

Dan O’Farrell, Workspot VP of Product Marketing


Many retail organizations currently use VDI technology to address multiple needs across their end user computing (EUC) to help ensure endpoint device security, enable efficient and productive retail operations, and help ensure a positive buying experience for both in-store and online customers. In retail, VDI is proven to be very effective across the following use cases:

  • end-user security and compliance, including PCI customer data protection
  • widely geographically distributed stores and online e-commerce site(s)
  • ordering and Inventory maintenance and tracking
  • call center agents for online shopping and e-commerce
  • temporary and contract workers
  • in-store digital signage
  • point of service (POS)
  • omnichannel shipping, receiving, and logistics

With traditional VDI solution providers now straining to meet the needs of retail organizations due to costly and cumbersome technology developed over two decades ago, Workspot offers instant relief to retailers with a modern, cloud-native VDI solution that delivers the best of VDI without the glaring drawbacks that currently hinder traditional VDI which is showing signs of collapsing under its own weight. Great for virtual apps and desktops located either within on-prem data centers or in the retailer’s cloud(s) of choice, the Workspot enterprise digital workplace platform is surprisingly easy to manage and operate while offering consistently great digital experiences (DEX) for employees and customers, up to “4 nines” availability, and 1-click recovery from any form of either natural or man-made disruption, including ransomware/malware attacks that threaten business every day.

In retail, great “always on” end-user digital experiences (DEX) are key to maintaining maximum production, happy workers and customers, and strong company performance. At Workspot, we’re proud to help retailers achieve their best in-store and online results with uncompromised security, compliance, and control.
