Support for Finlay James

Founded in 2003, Finlay James is a small but fast-paced and dynamic tech recruitment company, with headquarters across the world. They work with seed-stage startups all the way through to billion-dollar Tech Unicorns.

FastDesk allows Finley James employees to access their remote desktop from wherever they are; whether it be in San Fran, New York or London and Manchester. As Managing Director James May explains, “In recruitment, the idea of working from home is not that common. For us, it’s something we’ve done for a handful of people, but it’s never been implemented across the whole business.”

With ANS’s specialist tech support, DaaS management and security expertise, the desktop as a service solution allowed the company to safeguard data whilst gaining instant, secure access to their workplace desktop and applications, for every employee in their offices around the world.

“If we had a priority list of the biggest stresses throughout lockdown for our business, IT challenges would be at the bottom and that’s purely down to ANS and the FastDesk platform.”

“We came to ANS from another cloud platform. We weren’t very happy with the service we were receiving from those guys but we liked the idea of a cloud-based platform. So, we had a look around and found ANS who completely combined our needs” explains James.

The systems have continued working seamlessly for us which has been a huge benefit. Without FastDesk it would have been so tricky for us to continue the way we have done. We would have had a lot more issues and I would have been really concerned.
