By moving to a Virtual Desktop, your business could save up to 35% on its IT expenditure.
We often get asked if by moving to a Virtual Desktop, businesses can save money. It can be difficult to calculate because running a traditional IT setup is a completely different cost model to a Virtual Desktop.
A traditional IT setup involves upfront capital expenditure costs whereas a Virtual Desktop is based purely on monthly usage.
Of course, IT systems are chosen based on more factors than just saving money. But if your business can save money, become more secure and work better remotely, then a Virtual Desktop is a system worth pursuing.
We’ve created two eBooks based on two businesses. These businesses are based on real-world customers who have previously moved to a Yorkshire Cloud Virtual Desktop. Their previous IT spend using a traditional IT setup is accurate and the costs savings are impressive.
How much your business could save depends entirely on how complex your IT system is, how many users you have and what applications you use. We’ve proven that even small businesses with simplex IT setups can save money.
Medium-Sized BusinessA 50-user Accountancy
Let’s compare the cost of buying, owning and maintaining your own IT equipment with the cost of using a Virtual Desktop for a medium sized business.
We’re going to look at a medium sized business, with 50 employees. The business has two offices, one in Leeds and one in Manchester. We’re going to use the example of an accountancy but in truth, the business sector doesn’t matter. This could easily apply to any business of this size.

Small BusinessA 10-user PR Firm
In this example, we will compare the costs for a business with 10 IT users using a traditional server with them moving to a Virtual Desktop.
The business doesn’t use any business applications that would require a dedicated onsite server. They rely only on email, files, folders, and printing. It’s a basic IT setup. All the 10 IT users are office-based with only the Managing Director requiring occasional remote access.
