Hosted Desktop

The Ultimate Cloud Service


A Hosted Desktop is a new generation of desktop computing which utilises Cloud Technology.

Our Hosted Desktops enable companies to benefit from enterprise grade IT at much lower costs than those associated with traditional, locally installed, server based IT.

Hosted Desktops are a cloud IT solution which offer you flexible, reliable access to your software and files whether logging onto your desktop from the office, a different office, at home or on the move. 

Unlike many cloud services, WorkPlaceLive seamlessly provides access to your third party software, such as CRMs, databases or accounts packages - in fact, we are able to host almost any third party application supported in a Microsoft environment.

We are also one of the few Hosted Desktop companies in the UK who provide both Citrix and RDP Desktops, giving our customers the greatest choice of technology to best suit their needs.

Services are all bundled together and delivered monthly per user on a low, affordable pay-as you-go basis, with all your Software and Data available to you whenever you need it, wherever you are.

Without the need to purchase hardware, software licences or implement services, moving to Hosted Desktops offers quick and easy implementation. Our IT solutions are deployed quickly and are then managed, maintained and upgraded remotely.


Our Hosted Desktops come with an extensive range of cutting edge applications, all installed and configured at no extra cost:

  • Access from anywhere, 24/7
  • Microsoft Office 2013/2016
  • 25GB Microsoft Exchange Email Account
  • 10 GB Data Storage per user
  • Enterprise level security and backups
  • UK Helpdesk telephone and email support
Every company is different, and as such a WorkPlaceLive can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your business, by taking advantage of our extensive range of optional extras:
  • Integrate your own bespoke software and applications
  • Upgrade your mailbox with additional exchange storage
  • Enhance your Office environment with Microsoft Office Professional
  • Add additional Data Storage as and when required
And don't forget, you can also seamlessly integrate our Hosted Desktops with our Hosted Telephony and other services.

Whether a start-up, an established business or a charity, you need your IT to work for you.
Hosted Desktops give you an operational edge over your competitors, whilst reducing overheads to save your organisation money.
