Citrix and Remote Runtime...how is it?

We have requested a project from our IT department to install the remote runtime on a (dedicated) citrix server.
For people using the remote runtime with citrix apps, what is your experience?

We have a computer vision (prem) server and it is decent but the slowness when sending images for analysis makes it impractical for high volume processes. I would like to avoid a large expense which won’t solve some of our issues.
