Citrix Workspace is an essential program to ensure that we can implement a decentralized virtual desktop infrastructure to support our daily lab work. Citrix allows us to launch the VDI environment we currently utilize via Sharp Healthcare and ricoh-USA allowing us remote access to our LIS platforms. The flexibility makes it such that our employees can work from home effectively, our doctors are able to access their daily cases from various different locations, and within the lab itself our uses are able to jump to different workstations and continue work without disruption.
  • Simple and straightforward ease of access
  • Responsive and quick
  • Adaptable in various work environments
  • Additional functionality within the workspace environment
  • Better documentation of existing features within full/lite versions
We've been using Citrix Workspace to access our VDI environment(s) for years now and haven't ran into any issues. It has been an essential service for our lab staff and has had even greater utility in the last two years with more WFH work due to the pandemic. Being able to present our employees and doctors with the means to complete work remotely, wherever they may be, as long as they have access to CW has been huge. If you have dedicated workspaces that contain all programs and tools necessary to complete daily work, CW lets you de-centralize workstations and deploy greater flexibility for access options. If you want to implement shared folders/drives within an environment, without altering a local network infrastructure, Citrix will allow you to utilize that through any VDI you want to run.

I don't think it's very useful in a dedicated network infrastructure ala hospital system or huge corporation, but it will be most useful in any workspace that demands versatility for access.

Citrix Workspace is used so that we have access to our desktop and all files remotely when away from the office so that we are able to retrieve files from any place or time.
  • Secure access.
  • Responsive.
  • Available on many platforms.
  • I find it particularly difficult to easily save to anything other than my file database, such as my regular desktop files. The series of folder paths is very confusing in my opinion.
  • I cannot save pdfs to my remote system and must save them locally.
  • No printing to work place destination capability.
Citrix Workspace is great to use for intermittent remote work. I still prefer my full system in an office though because of the confusing and difficult time with saving things locally or in pdf form.

Citrix Workspace is used for our desktop applications as a whole - we can log in once, and use all applications that we need to conduct business. We have storage applications for documents, email, applications to capture details of insurance policies, various Office products, Webex capabilities for online meetings and messaging, and access to the internet for research.
  • Provides one login for access to all needed applications.
  • Login to Citrix Workspace is fast.
  • I have trouble recognizing when I am in or out of Citrix Workspace.
The connection between Citrix Workspace and Webex is tough to manage in my opinion. If I am on a Webex call, for example, I sometimes have to log out of Citrix Workspace in order to be able to use both Webex and Excel to view documents on that call. I wish it were seamless.

Citrix Workspace is used for providing general-purpose desktop virtual machines to employees in my organization. There are many day-to-day utilities like chrome, Putty, Word, etc being hosted on Citrix Workspace and provided to users to be used in a secure connection.
  • Daily use application at on place like Chrome, Word, Explorer, Excel, putty, etc in company secured connection.
  • Citrix Workspace can be used to provide general purpose virtual machines to users.
  • A company can also host internal tools and applications to Citrix Workspace for easy access to everyone in the organization.
  • Sometimes, it takes much time to spin up a virtual machine. I use a general-purpose windows system through it.
  • UI for Citrix Store Front can be improved. It can be more engaging.
  • User should be able to create collections and manage apps as per their preference.
Citrix Workspace is no doubt one of the best solutions if you are looking for seamless access to multiple daily used applications at a single place in a company secured connection. It has centralized updates and a patching mechanism which makes it operate hassle-free. If you are using AWS cloud in your company and big fan of it, you can also go for Amazon Workspaces for a uniform ecosystem.

We use Citrix Workspace to access some of our customers' virtual machines where we do our daily work in a completely secure environment. Besides access to VMs, we also have access to a set of pre-configured software solutions without having to deal with installations/configuration steps. We use it either from company computers or sometimes from our own devices (when working from home or while traveling).
  • Secure Remote Access to customers' VMs and computers.
  • No installation, ready-to-use applications are available with a click.
  • Uses more bandwidth than other remote access options.
  • Few customization / personalization options.
Whenever you need remote access to environments where security is a must, Citrix Workspace is a solution. It is a reliable tool that enables a digital, remotely accessible workspace with high security (multiple factor authentication, encryption). The product receives frequent updates.

Citrix is used here as a dashboard that contains links to open a variety of software products we use to conduct our work. Given the nature of our work, secure access to confidential material is imperative, and Citrix is used as a gate to enter those domains. My role can access 18 different items in this way.
  • Creates a dashboard to access software
  • Allows users to securely login to applications
  • Redundant features
  • Extra, unnecessary clicks to access items
Citrix Workspace is well suited as a dashboard for the variety of software and applications that relate to the various functions of our department. It seems secure and simple to navigate, which I appreciate as someone who handles sensitive information.

Citrix Workspace allows us to access remote programs that we use on a daily basis. Primarily, we access a remote server for our accounting program.
  • Remote access
  • Server Access
  • Remote work
  • Some interface issues
  • Issues with program opening items correctly
  • Troubleshooting isn't straightforward
It is a great program to access programs/servers remotely without needing to have any other programs installed or used on your computer.

Citrix Workspace is a complete digital workspace that provides secure access to the information, apps and other content that is relevant to a person's role in our organization.
It provides services to make available and can access from anywhere and on any device.
In the situation of work from home this application is used by the whole organization and it addresses the work environment of different purposes.
  • It provides secure environment for the access of client's database.
  • If we have verified account or having the login id password (credentials) we have the access of Workspace as long as we want.
  • Connectivity is so simple that first time user also understand all the features.
  • If the internet connectivity is low it might get disconnected or having the slowness in the system.
  • Large file transfer takes a lot of time and make things little difficult.
  • I guess it only works from Microsoft Windows OS.
So if I talk about well suited scenario then I must say it has a well secured environment for accessing companies or client database, secondly it has no time restriction if you have proper credentials.

Now talking about less appropriate so I can say that if sometime your internet connectivity is slow Workspace might get disconnected and you have to log in again.

Citrix Workspace is used by my whole organization. Actually we are a UD based company and working here in India, so the Citrix Workspace sorts of help as connection between the organization as a whole. For an organization perspective, it kind of provides one platform for its employees and also it's easy to monitor the system.
  • Security- with the new updates come regularly it makes the workspace secured.
  • Connectivity- so given in current situation where work from home is the new norm the connectivity plays a vital role.
  • Virtual environment-from the organization perspective it's easy to monitor the auspicious activities.
  • Speed- it requires pretty good internet connection, otherwise system gets slow.
  • Interrupt- a lot of times the device gets logged out automatically.
  • Limited setting options- inside the virtual environment, there are [few] options for customization.
Feasibility- given in current situation, it facilitates work from home norm.
In terms of security, the Citrix Workspace has an upper hand, the regular updates add to its value. Talking about negatives, the very few options for customization, also requirement of high speed for getting connected to the virtual environment and last but not the least automatic logout sometimes , these are the areas where there is scope of improvement.
