Moving you to your new office seamlessly
If your business plan includes growth, then it is inevitable that at some point you will need to relocate to bigger offices. This might not seem that daunting at first, but once you begin to implement an office relocation, it can quickly become apparent that it is actually a mammoth task. Most of the stress and frustration surrounding an office move will be related to the IT infrastructure.
Your in house IT department may not have the time, expertise, or experience to effectively carry out a complex office relocation.
- Have you considered how much time it will take to disconnect and package all of the PCs, servers, printers, phone systems, cables, and other peripherals such as monitors?
- Have you considered how much time and expertise is required to set all of this equipment up correctly in the new office, including the setting up of networks, shared drives, network printers, servers etc.?
- Can you deal with the frustration of not having your IT infrastructure set up correctly in your new office?
- Can you afford to have employees sitting around waiting for the IT system to be configured properly?
- Can you be sure that downtime will be kept to an absolute minimum?
- Will you have a continuity plan in place in case of disaster or delay?
