Case Study & Testimonial
I am a freelance Access Database/SQL developer. In 2007, I was commissioned by a large corporation to develop an Access database which would collate sales data from their agencies. It needed to be accessible by multiple users, over multiple sites.
This presented several challenges. The remote site client computers differed from each other wildly, in infrastructure, firewall and security policies, O/S versions and Ms-Access versions; from home users to huge corporate environments with un-cooperative IT departments.
This meant that a typical approach using ODBC to connect the database to a centralised SQL server would be difficult, as supporting end-users in these different environments would not be easy.
We opted to host the database on a Terminal Server to provide a consistent stable platform for all users. As a developer, I wanted to provide a managed solution, where the server would be maintained, backed up, secure, up-to-date and without the hardware outlay, without me having to worry about the physical side of things.
For these reasons I sought a Hosted Terminal Server, and this service has been provided to us by YourOfficeAnywhere since 2008.
The end-users are provided with a locked-down but rich user interface with the pre-configured Ms Access database ready to run. Users can access the database from anywhere regardless of their environment.
To manage the system, as an administrator I can manage the file system to apply database updates or take backups all via RDP.
The application has been running since 2008 and the infrastructure and support provided by YourOfficeAnywhere has been outstanding throughout. The support they provide is first class, and their technical guys are very good at discussing infrastructure ideas and tailoring the system to get it exactly right, and quickly. They also support the end users to help with printer issues or login problems etc.
Their servers are extremely stable and their up-time has been impressive.
I consider the cost of the service to be extremely worthwhile, and far preferable to the alternative costs and hassle of buying and maintaining a dedicated server and Access licences, with all the extra cost that entails.

As a Hosted Desktop Reseller do I have to provide technical support?
It’s up to you. Many IT companies and software vendors that resell our service like to act as first line support for their customers so they can triage the issue to determine if it is an application issue or an infrastructure issue. They may charge a premium to their clients for this service. Other resellers prefer the customer to contact Your Office Anywhere direct and simply take their commission. We don’t mind either way.
Can I White Label Hosted Desktops?
We don’t offer a white label option as standard. Many of the “branded” parts of the service operate on shared infrastructure which gives us the economies of scale that allows us to keep prices low, as well as providing the resilience and high availability. However, for specific, large scale implementations, this could be considered.
