Nasstar Hosted Desktop gives companies the ability to use all their other line of business applications including Microsoft Office and Open Office in the cloud. It is a true alternative to traditional IT and can mean that a company has zero IT hardware or resource in house. The new release also introduces AddApp, the Nasstar Hosted Desktop application store. Users can add applications including Microsoft Visio and Microsoft Project and just pay for the time they use the service, removing the need for expensive investment in occasionally used software. More applications will be added to AddApp over the coming months.
“The release of the these new Hosted Desktop services will enable us to offer greater choice to our customers and in many cases at a significantly lower price. The ability to build multiple user profiles within a company means they will truly only pay for what the actually use. And AddApp will allow companies to deliver other non standard applications a click of button. If a user needs Microsoft Visio for a month, they can have it in an instant and only pay for that time they use it, this exactly what the customers have been asking for” David Owens, Managing Director, Lets Operate.
