Next-generation Virtual App and Desktop Solution Improves Work Life for Toronto Law Firm
CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Workspot, the leader in next-generation virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), today announced that Chaitons LLP, a law firm based in Toronto, is realizing significant return on investment from its Workspot VDI 2.0 deployment. Workspot replaced Chaitons’ legacy VDI solution, resulting in better system performance, increased productivity and significantly reduced costs.

Chaitons’ legacy VDI solution was unreliable, requiring numerous, disruptive server reboots. With one-third of staff members working remotely, BYOD compatibility and security issues also strained IT resources.
Built from scratch for the cloud, Workspot VDI 2.0 completely transforms how IT delivers desktops and applications to any device. With Workspot’s fast deployment on Scale Computing’s hyperconverged infrastructure, Chaitons now enjoys these benefits:
- Reduced complexity: Improved system performance and simplified operations allowed Chaitons to reallocate IT resources to more strategic projects.
- Role-based access: The prior solution forced Chaitons to share all applications with everyone; now they grant access to apps based on the user’s role in the firm.
- Secure BYOD: Sensitive information is protected using Workspot Client – a secure container residing on users’ devices that provides access to apps and data.
- Easy set-up: Employees downloaded Workspot Client, set up a password, and got to work. It’s that simple.
Jimmy Chang, vice president of products at Workspot, said: “With VDI 2.0, deployment and management is greatly simplified, reducing capital and operating expenditures. Chaitons’ lawyers now serve clients more effectively, from anywhere, using any device they choose.”
Dom Chung, director of IT at Chaitons LLP, said: “The cost savings alone make Workspot a no-brainer. But that’s not all. Within a few minutes of deploying Workspot, we delivered our users’ dream scenario of remote access to the physical PC in their office. That use case alone made us heroes.”
Workspot has reinvented VDI with a cloud-native architecture that securely delivers apps, desktops and workstations to any device, while dramatically reducing total cost of ownership compared to legacy VDI solutions. With Workspot’s industry-first, no-risk customer engagement model, organizations achieve unprecedented time to value.
