The Amber Foundation and Hightrees Organisation Limited have recently rolled out a ‘home workers’ setup which enables staff members to work remotely from the office. Anti-virus updates are available via the web, removing the dependancy for a centralised server installation. A VPN system will be implemented later in the year for maximum flexibility. PlusNet are being used as the ADSL supplier and each ‘home office’ is equipped with an ADSL router, Epson Colour Printers and on-site support from Hightrees Organisation Limited.
Both Amber main sites are now running on ADSL which has improved the data communications within the organisation and provides a suitable platform for future IT systems and services.
