Remote Desktop Software: The COVID-19 Solution for Businesses

The pandemic has had a staggering impact on businesses across the globe. While some businesses moved to the remote working model, a few of them went into a complete shutdown. The businesses that had to choose the second way were either extremely location dependent- for eg. manufacturing units, industries, etc, or didn’t have the right infrastructure to enable remote working . As the initial comprehensions around the pandemic are slowly subsiding, returning to normalcy feels far from real, at least in the year of 2020. The need to be ‘remote-first’ is real and this is where the remote desktop software comes into play.
