Amersham, UK. – 3rd February, 2009: Did the snow keep you at home yesterday? Faced with more severe weather warnings, disruption will continue for UK office workers this week. But help is at hand as Citrix Online has launched extended free trials of its GoToMeeting® and GoToMyPC® remote working tools, giving workers the ability to meet online and access their PC from any location in order to combat travel chaos and school closures.
"With news reports indicating that the recent snowfalls are the worst to hit Britain in 18 years it is important to provide businesses with the tools necessary for employees to continue to work wherever they are," says Bernardo de Albergaria, vice president and general manager of global marketing and eCommerce for Citrix Online. "GoToMyPC is a great tool for remote desktop access for any kind of disruption, whether it be related to bad weather, traffic congestion or even taking care of a sick child. The GoToMeeting product is also a simple solution that can have a big impact on the success of any organisation that depends on outreach to dispersed customers or employees - particularly with the recent weather we are seeing in Britain today.”
