(28 Ratings) Write Review

Workspot is the Enterprise Desktop Cloud that provides a SaaS platform to users and delivers desktop-as-a-service (DaaS), with a 100% cloud-native architecture. Users can leverage Workspot to deliver applications and desktops based on the global cloud regions of Azure and Google Cloud. Whether you are a call center employee, a knowledge worker, or a power user who will not compromise on performance, the software lets you securely deliver exactly the right computing capability on any device. Low-latency cloud desktops deliver outstanding performance that keeps users happy since they get high bandwidth connectivity from cloud providers. They take accountability for upgrades and the business SLA of users' cloud desktops. The platform is managed by Workspot and the underlying complexity is hidden from administrators. Workspot’s Network Operations Center gives real-time visibility into every Workspot user at a global level. As a result, they can identify potential issues quickly, alert the IT department, and ensure the end-user availability.

(Reviewed on 17 August 2020) "VDI Desktops that are easy to deploy and administer"

What do you like best?

Workspot allows our IT department to be as hands-on or hands-off as we need to be when maintaining the VDI environment. The implementation process was well thought out and went smoothly. Performance of the VDI desktops exceeds that of the previous VDI environment we had on premise. Allowing Workspot to take care of the underlying VDI infrastructure has really helped our IT department focus on support end-users as opposed to supporting infrastructure.

What do you dislike?

Hardware specifications of the VDI machines is limited to the pre-built vms offered by Azure. Some more advanced tasks like resizing the OS drive on an already deployed VM cannot be done using the Control Panel and must be done by the support staff.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were getting results of poor performance for remote workers on our aging, on-premise VDI platform. Moving to Workspot has virtually elimiated all VDI performance troubleshooting requests and has also allowed our team to focus on providing end-user support instead of monitoring and maintaining an on-premise VDI platform.

(Reviewed on 13 August 2020) "Workspot has a premier DaaS service with great support throughout the process."

What do you like best?

We utilize Workspot for full Desktop systems on multiple occasions. The build and deployment of a gold image is simple and easy to set up. We've built them within the Workspot environment and uploaded a VHD file on separate occasions and both were easy to do. The console has nearly everything you need right at your fingertips. The computers are fast an powerful, all of our users had no problem transitioning from a performance perspective. The offerings of Nvidia powered graphics capable systems for CAD/Solid Modeling programs makes it a great pick for even the most power hungry programs.

The support by the Workspot technical teams is top notch. Always responsive, with a useful answer. Always ready to jump in and help. Never once did I feel like my questions were beneath them. Always happy to jump in and work together to resolve issues.

What do you dislike?

Though the console has everything you need it could use some improvement in navigation. Occasionally I find myself hunting around for a particular item. The Active Directory connection can be a bit fiddly at first. But once it's syncing nicely there are no issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're using a full desktop build the computer in the Workspot environment directly it's much easier.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provides an always on desktop accessible from anywhere. When Covid hit and everyone had to work from home there was zero disruption to the workflow. With the Workspot systems and an Azure cloud architecture, zero days were lost in the transition for office work to work from home.

(Reviewed on 13 August 2020) "Smallwood Review of Workspot"

What do you like best?

With a small IT Staff we were struggling to keep up with the demands of end users day to day tasks and managing our VDI environment. Workspot has taken the VDI load off our hands and has made it a simple process to spin up new users. This has allowed out department to focus more and provide better support without adding staff

What do you dislike?

The migration with Azure and meraki vpn was a little difficult, but Workspot was great in assisting with the setup.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to implementation of workspot we struggled with the skill set needed to maintain a VDI environment consistently having the stretch the IT Dept. By implementing Workspot we are now able to easily manage the environment which in turn has improved our response time to other end user issues.

The current Pandemic has allowed us to realize the true benefits of Workspot. We were able to to transition our staff from primarily in office to 100 % at home and didnt skip a beat. I have talked to many firms who took weeks to transition with full functionality, where even with a few end user issues had everyone producing within a couple days.

(Reviewed on 12 August 2020) "Perfect for our small remote offices."

What do you like best?

Consolidating my smaller offices into one.

What do you dislike?

The cost of the GPU Workstation. Hope the fractional GPU become available soon.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you don't undersize your machines, because the users will know. Google Earth doesn't work unless you have a GPU. Check your latency to the Microsoft datacenter. Low latency will kill the experience.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No need to have server onsite and can consolidate many small offices into a larger "Workspot Office in the Cloud"

(Reviewed on 12 August 2020) "Fantastic Solution"

What do you like best?

We have a windows based application that was going to take an arm/leg to redevelop to support apple products. The Workspot application was the answer to this . It's easy for users to install and now I am able to provide my app to these users. Cannot tell you how excited my company is to have this product.

What do you dislike?

I haven't experienced any dislikes. Getting great feedback from my clients and I am certain it will only be additional improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It really solved a very big ask for our company. I am over the moon thrilled with the product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can create unique instances of a virtual desktop for several uses. My team's use was particularly for these Apple/Mac devices, but we see huge benefits in other departments in our organization.

(Reviewed on 25 June 2020) "Great Solution for Remote Workers Using Cloud Computing"

What do you like best?

A couple years ago we researched technology that would make it possible for our remote users/small upstart companies to access our global file share in Azure and work efficiently. We found that Workspot was the perfect solution. We needed two types of Virtual machines based on application use. Workspot provided high end GPU systems for our Cad users and power systems that worked perfectly for everyone else. The quick and attentive support that we received from Workspot from the initial setup through completion was another plus. This product works very well and as promised. We were so fortunate to have had this in place prior to the Pandemic. Workspot quickly reacted to our needs for additional systems during that time. We highly recommend this product!

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that we found that we disliked.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great product that simply works for our remote users/small upstart companies, etc. Using Workspot allows us to cut cost by using less of a system on site because the computing power is in the Workspot VM.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To minimize costs when spinning up small offices across the county without having to implement a lot of expensive hardware on premise or for remote workers Workspot provided the exact solution we needed. The Workspot client is easy to use for our users allowing them so many options such as working across multiple monitors which is vital when using Cad applications or GIS.

(Reviewed on 04 June 2020) "Workspot, unexpected uses and gains"

What do you like best?

The deployment process being quick straightforward, easy to use interface, and great customer support.

What do you dislike?

The initial transition of a base image from on-prem to Workspot. Wanting a little more control and access to image creation aspects.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially used to address Covid-19 related measures for Customer Support team being remote. Soon realized great opportunity for expansion into payroll and other departments

(Reviewed on 03 June 2020) "Fast setup, easy management at a fixed cost"

What do you like best?

With all the prerequisites in Azure, we were able to get provisioned very quickly. The management page is very easy to use. They continue to make enhancements to the service.

What do you dislike?

Even though it is a fixed cost, it is not cheap, especially for the fixed GPU models. The recommended Windows 10 build is an older 1809 (this however is due to Windows "issues").

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had been working on setting up servers in Azure right before COVID-19 office closures. When we made Workspot desktops available to some of our users, they were able to work far more efficiently than before. With data and the desktops in Azure, they were able to do CAD designs faster than working from a VPN.

We have our own on-prem VDI solution, however to expand on that system would have high capex cost (especially when using dedicated GPU). With Workspot we can fixed opex costs, and not have to worry about the maintenance and upkeep of additional servers and infrastructure.
