Best Mobile User Experience

Transform any desktop application into a fully fledged mobile app. iOS and Android native gestures—such as swipe, zoom in and tap to click—are instantly enabled, improving users' productivity while on the move.

Native Gestures

Multitasking on Any Device

Parallels Client provides you with the option of having multiple applications running on your device, including mobile devices and Google Chromebook™.

Print from Any Device

Parallels RAS enables users to print from any device utilizing local printers without requiring any configuration. The universal printer driver receives the printing job, compresses it and sends it back to the local device. There is no need to install local printer drivers on the Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) when using Parallels RAS Universal Printing. Meer informatie

“Very simple and fast to set up and run. Parallels RAS achieves what we needed. Our staff can now access our apps and storage remotely using any mobile device, at any time of the day.”

Quick Keypads

Parallels RAS allows IT admins to define custom keys to simplify common series of keystrokes. Custom keys appear above the standard keyboard in iOS and Android and can be tapped just like any other key on the virtual keyboard. When a particular software requires repeated selection of a specific menu or toolbar items, using custom keys can significantly improve the user experience. Meer informatie

Full-Screen Applications

Transform Samsung phones into fully-fledged workstations with access to corporate applications, desktops and data.

Extended drag-and-drop functionality

Provide users the ability to drag and drop files from the server to the client and vice versa. Users can drag files from their published resources, applications and desktopts to their Windows and macOS® workstations, increasing productivity and improving the user experience.

Multi-Monitor Window Positions

Multi-Monitor Window Positions

Parallels RAS enables a consistent UX for multi-monitor users by relaunching applications and desktops in their last-used position. When users open a published desktop, it launches in the primary monitor by default, and they can then drag the window to any secondary monitor.

Parallels RAS UX

“The fact that Parallels RAS can deliver all applications that my employees need over a 4G connection is, quite frankly, remarkable, and all that without any compromise in user experience, security, or compliance requirements!”

CIO at WISE Employment

Local Drive Redirection

Enable users to work on local files while using published applications by instantly redirecting the local drive from the user device to the remote session. Local drives are particularly beneficial for users who want to keep all their personal data and files on their local drive while still using remote applications.

RemoteFX Support

Parallels RAS fully supports RemoteFX graphics enhancement, providing users a consistent experience regardless of video formats or application—and consuming up to 90% less bandwidth. In addition, Parallels RAS supports RemoteFX USB redirection, enabling the use of local services such as printing, scanning, audio, USB, drives and email. Meer informatie

Parallels RAS analyzes users' habits, providing employees with instant access to their virtual workspace when they need them. Moreover, smart load-balancing distributes the back-end workload to prevent log-on storms during peak hours. Meer informatie
