Growing Real Estate Agency Thrives on Workspot VDI and Nutanix

Virtualized Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise desktops deployed in a private cloud powers mobile productivity on any device

Cunninghams enjoys productivity benefits and reduced IT costs with its Workspot VDI 2.0 solution on Nutanix, managed by cloud services provider Go Systems.

Challenge:

Cunninghams’ commitment to stellar client service was at odds with their aging, non-performing IT infrastructure. Foremost was the need to securely access corporate applications and data while mobile, from a variety of devices; to operate in “kiosk mode” so staff members can access their desktops using any available device while in the office; and support for offshore graphic designers who use a subset of the corporate apps to develop marketing and advertising assets.

Solution:

• Deploy new datacenter infrastructure in the form of a private cloud, using Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure
• Implement virtual Windows 10 desktops using next-generation Workspot VDI 2.0
• Provide simple, secure access to Office 365 productivity apps, REST property management and fileSMART document management applications via Workspot Client unified workspace running on any device

Benefits:

• Dramatically reduced IT complexity and cost
• Ability to scale quickly and infinitely to accommodate corporate growth
• Superior system performance resulting in user productivity gains
• Turnkey managed solution eliminated CapEx and the need for in-house IT resources

“Workspot and Go Systems fully enabled our work-from-anywhere approach”

 

“The combination of Workspot running on Nutanix HCI is a simple yet powerful solution; we were able to implement VDI 2.0 on Nutanix as a Private Cloud faster than we thought possible. We’re very excited about the results for Cunninghams and about the possibilities for other customers to realize the benefits of improved productivity and reduced costs.”

Robert Ek – CEO, Go Systems

“As a fast-growing property sales and management firm, it’s imperative that our sales people, property managers, office administrators, executives and designers can work from anywhere using their own devices. With Workspot running on Nutanix, we have secure, access to our corporate apps and data, and productivity has soared across the organization because it’s so easy to use.”

Bree Higgins – Director, General Manager, Cunninghams
