A Proven Process. A Revolutionary Solution

HeliX is a complete solution that delivers extraordinary value throughout every phase of your Windows Desktop lifecycle. With every turn of the HeliX wheel, and all points in between, your business will benefit from the proven process that Helient first perfected as a project-based consultancy. We have incorporated this mastery of our craft into the HeliX App and companion service, which we now offer for continuous delivery to you.

“Whenever we do major upgrades – it is important to choose a trusted and experienced business partner that will educate you on all of the enhancements and benefits. Helient Systems provided guidance on the design, implementation, and knowledge transfer for my team regarding our new Windows 10 desktop, Microsoft Office upgrade and VDI environment.”

Identify and Benchmark your Target Devices

Of course, your applications need to run well on each of your device types. Adding the active Windows devices to your HeliX subscription allows you to target them in a Desktop Build and enables these additional features:

  • Document your device inventories including multiple variants of each device type and their key specifications: CPU core quantity, installed memory, GPU type, and disk size and type
  • Build a historical record of benchmarking information associated with each device variant and the Windows Desktop build to gauge relative performance and identify performance anomalies
  • Associate any build or application issues with the device on which they are discovered for proper correlation and reporting across device types
  • Identify required device drivers and conditional logic for incorporation into a unified Windows OS Deployment Task Sequence

Desktop Delivery Redefined for the Modern Lifecycle

The HeliX solution is built around the unique requirements of the business desktop refresh cycle. Whatever your desired refresh frequency, each HeliX Desktop incorporates all the unrivaled design, planning, and project management expertise for which Helient is widely recognized as an industry leader.

The HeliX Desktop Delivery Dashboard provides real-time updates and visibility into the overall status of each refresh project. Phases are dynamically tracked and can only be completed by fully satisfying the underlying requirements, such as final approval of the System Design Specifications, successful completion of QA testing, or confirmed closure of all critical issues.
