Virtual Desktops and IT Solutions for the Transportation and Logistics Industries

  • Does your team write shipping information on paper and only transfer it to your database when back at their desks?
  • Do you have trouble providing real-time updates of tracking information when the responsible staff cannot access their desktops?
  • Do you need to keep your customer information, user data, and applications secure?

MATHE presents IT Fortress, which, unlike conventional desktop environments, does not tie down users to a particular location or physical device. It allows workers in the transportation and logistics fields to log in to their desktops remotely and securely on any connected device. They not only get a familiar interface but also access to all their files and applications.
