But with the help of software, a Dutch organization is working to change that.
After running into problems submitting their observations using a VPN connection, the centre adopted Horizon DaaS, virtual desktop software from VMware.
The software offers a simple and affordable pay-as-you-go model for externally hosting the desktop.
It also gives the centre unlimited scalability in the number of desktops available and makes the desktops easy to manage.
Our Healthy School Canteen brigadiers no longer face any restrictions during their work, said Jelle Jager, business operations manager at the centre.
With the VMware software, these mobile employees can quickly start applications with logins that are substantially more efficient than when team members used a VPN-based virtual server.
