FastSoft, Inc., the leader in dynamic site acceleration software, announced its Desktop Virtualization Acceleration solution today for remote workers. It accelerates Citrix Remote Desktop, Microsoft RDP, and other leading thin client applications up to 500%, significantly improving end-user experience and productivity for remote workers. Like other FastSoft solutions, it is deployed on the server side and does not require client software on the remote side, giving FastSoft’s customers fast and scalable deployments.
ReSource Pro, a leading business process outsourcing provider to the insurance industry, has seen a 10% increasing in remote worker productivity using FastSoft’s thin client acceleration solution.
“We have 650 remote employees in China serving our U.S.-based clients,” said Matt Bruno, Managing Director of China for ReSource Pro, LLC. “FastSoft’s solution has increased their productivity 10%, giving us the equivalent of sixty more employees.”
Employee motivation and productivity rates improved dramatically when the virtualized desktops displayed PDF documents – which had previously taken 4-5 seconds to show on the screen – in less than a second.
“Employees know when they’re on the accelerator,” said Bruno. “When they have a new client and are not on the accelerator yet, they get a ticket to the help desk that says, ‘Make sure I’m on the accelerator by end of day!’”.
The solution employs FastSoft’s patented FastTCP® algorithm developed at the California Institute of Technology. It eliminates long pauses during remote desktop sessions, ensuring that thin clients are not starved for bandwidth and that they recover quickly from packet loss.
