Desktop.com: Releasing Much-Needed Ecosystem for Remote and Hybrid Teams

Desktop.com releases sweeping new improvements to their comprehensive remote work platform, combating several of the most common issues that remote and hybrid teams face.

Desktop.com announced that their latest major release would include a new kind of customizable workspaces, each with unlimited desktops for different team members, partners or projects.

“Teams don’t need another productivity app – they need a better way to access, manage and collaborate across the ones they already have”

“Teams don’t need another productivity app – they need a better way to access, manage and collaborate across the ones they already have,” says Desktop.com CEO Rolf Larsen.

Modern Teams Can Customize Their Own Digital HQ

Shapeless remote or hybrid work arrangements can not only make businesses vulnerable to digital security threats, but it is also a breeding ground for disorganization, lack of connection and over time decreasing employee engagement.

Just because a team is geographically separated doesn’t mean they need to feel like they aren’t working within one digital locality. Desktop.com workspaces create this digital headquarters for a team, where they know they are always on the same page as the rest of the organization.

The Office Building, Floors & Individual Offices Of Remote Work

By creating a digital workplace (the building), with digital workspaces and customizable desktops (the offices & meeting rooms) teams can create a sustainable environment for remote work that can be customized to their needs.

Desktop.com users can have multiple workspaces – e.g. one for each business – that can be linked together for convenient access within a single view, removing cumbersome login barriers when managing several accounts for a single service. Each workspace can in turn consist of one or several desktops, one for each project, department or external client. Each desktop can be customized with apps, links and contacts relevant to the specific purpose of that desktop.

A better way to consolidate scattered tools and share resources securely and efficiently.

While many other remote work software options offer solutions to individual remote team communication or collaboration problems, Desktop.com provides an entire ecosystem and a structure that can complement any modern team’s existing solution.

Utilizing Desktop.com workspaces and new customizable desktops allow teams and business owners to:

  • Get a better overview of all their assets, resources and ongoing conversations.
  • Organize their own digital workplace.
  • Improve overall access controls and security.
  • Separate and bulk-share collections of online assets and tools in an efficient and secure way, e.g. to dedicated client or partner desktops.

Like Collaborating in the Office, But Digitally and Better.

To further the resemblance with a traditional office setting, Desktop.com’s cross-platform communication suite integrates entirely with the new workspaces, and chat invitations can easily be sent to anyone with an email address. This modern solution encourages ongoing communication not only within the team, but also with external parties such as agencies or freelancers, right in the context of the digital office.

Tying this expansive communication system into the greater tool bag of Desktop.com workspaces further combats the issue of wrestling scattered and disjointed tools.

Why is this important in today’s app-dense world?

Because if each team member is to mash together several tools that only cover one need of a workplace, without any consistency or overview across the team, it can often lead to clutter and disorganization. Especially over time. Desktop.com workspaces instead allow a team to intentionally and securely engineer the perfect combination of resources, tools, and contacts for each member and team, bringing the structure and consistency necessary in high-performing collaborative teams.

The Importance Of Creating A Setting For Company Culture When Working Remotely

Desktop.com’s toolset provides the shared work environment and open communication necessary to developing community and culture in the digital workplace. In traditional settings, positive shared workplace culture is an important ingredient to productive collaboration, wellbeing and innovation.

Tying all aspects of remote work collaboration into one ecosystem with Desktop.com provides the shared experience and level playing field necessary for a team to function smoothly, cultivating the required morale and culture to flourish.

The standard of office workspaces will likely never return entirely, and investing in the organization and toolset of a digital workforce is a vital way to ensure long-term, efficient collaboration for a team.
