At Virtue Technologies, now more than ever; we see the importance of flexible access to school ICT resources in order to create a flexible learning environment.

We can help you avoid the costs of setting up and managing this access by using our extensive knowledge and skills to ensure we get the correct solutions for you. Our solution provides flexibility to staff and students by allowing them to connect to files and folders whilst running programs such as Microsoft Office wherever they are.

Reduce infrastructure costs by right-sizing virtual machines (VMs) and shutting them down when not in use. Increase utilisation of Virtual machines with Windows 10 and Windows 11 multi-session.

Microsoft Remote Desktop

The Microsoft Remote Desktop App provides consistent, easy access to a variety of devices and platforms while delivering a high performance, rich user experience.

With RemoteApp, remote applications are easier for users to find and launch as they run side by side with local applications and integrate with the Start Menu or Screen in Windows or the OS X Finder.

Speak to one of our Account Managers to discover how remote access could help your school become a more flexible learning environment.

Windows 365

Optimised for simplicity Windows 365 provides a Remote Access solution that securely streams your personalised Windows experience, all your apps, content and settings to any device.

Some of the nice words our customers say about their experience

Shahzeab was prompt at replying to my query, personable when helping at the printer itself and assured me that he could find a solution. He sent a follow up email and also checked in to see if things were working yet when he passed me in the corridor. Great service!

Dragos is an extremely hard-working, attentive and all-round brilliant support agent. I could not ask for more. Dragos solved our case with high level proficiency, professionality, and was pro-active enough to take the software to his testing lab and test firewall rules for us, as to not interrupt our daily workflow. Virtue Technologies and Dragos, I cannot express my appreciation enough – thank you!

For such a young man, Sam presented himself in such a polite and professional manner. His confidence around his knowledge and skillset was second to none, and his conversation was engaging. It was pleasant to come across such a motivated and enthusiastic young character.

Excellent support from Myles. Above and beyond what I was hoping. Investigated the issues, and implemented the solution and then took time to explain and show me what had been implemented.

Paul setup InTune to save us time and lay the foundations so we have a recommended configuration to build upon, and be able to setup new surface tablets with a cloud first approach. I really enjoyed working with Paul on this and his knowledge and experience in this area was excellent.

The quality of the quotes and the process Virtue have for order confirmations (along with the speed at which they are generated) was significantly better than all the other businesses we dealt with. Virtue made it really easy for us.

Patricia is a great asset to Team Virtue. Her quick responses to any question posed are what customers need and, if she’s not able to answer, she always put us at ease by forwarding our query elsewhere. Requests for quotes are quick and detailed, and it’s great to know there’s a friendly voice/email at the other end if ever we need it.

Virtue Technologies actually understand what goes on in schools, it’s not all about a computer on a desk, it’s about the experience for the students. I think we share that with Virtue.
