Leading Indian furniture manufacturer Nilkamal leverages Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops to deliver simple access to resources needed to work safely and productively from anywhere.

Enabling remote work has been a challenge for organizations around the world.

When the pandemic hit, Nilkamal Limited, an industry pioneer in manufacturing molded furniture and material handling products, had to figure out how to equip employees across its eight manufacturing plants, network of more than 1,000 distributors, over 20,000 dealers and 80 stores to work from anywhere in a consistent and secure way to keep business moving. And it turned to Citrix Systems for help.

“As a fast-growing company with highly diversified operations, it was imperative to enable our employees with the ability to access applications from across different locations, including from non-office locations while travelling,” said Karan Doshi, Head – IT and Strategy, Nilkamal.

“While we were looking for application virtualisation to address the immediate need for secure and seamless access to mission critical applications, we also wanted to lay the foundation for the future of work – one that allows our workforce the flexibility to work from anywhere and be more productive.”

And it found a solution that would enable it to do both in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops.

“Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops fit well with our vision for the future,” Doshi said. “It not only met our current requirements but also offered the ability to align with the future demands and changing workplace dynamics.”

Delivered as part of Citrix Workspace, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops enables organisations to serve up personalised access to the systems, information and tools their employees need in one, unified experience and dynamically apply security policies based on a user’s behaviour and environment so they can work when, where and how they want with the confidence that their applications, information and devices are safe.

Nilkamal will use the solution to empower its distributed workforce to perform at their best.

Enabling secure remote work

Modern workers expect flexibility in where they work and choice in the applications they use to get things done. IT needs to deliver on this, but not at the expense of security.

Leveraging contextual, zero-trust security controls built into Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, including anti-screenshotting, anti-keylogging and session watermarking capabilities, Nilkamal can provide personalised access to the applications and information users need to do their jobs in a simple, transparent way

“The secure remote access provided by Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops to our mission critical applications has significantly enhanced our security posture while supporting the modern mobile workforce,” Doshi said.

Enhancing the employee experience

And the solution’s ability to provide employees with consistent, reliable access to corporate systems and data and remove the friction from work that can frustrate and slow them has enhanced their experience.

“With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, we have been able to achieve considerable improvement in the employee experience, which in turn, has improved the experience they’re able to offer to their customers.”

Nilkamal joins more than 400,000 organizations around the world who rely on Citrix digital workspace solutions to modernise IT, empower secure distributed work and boost worker productivity.
