IT Office Relocations

IT Relocation for Office Moves

For most companies moving office, the IT office relocation is one of the most important parts in the moving office process that you need to get right. In today's business world a company simply can't function without its IT infrastructure.

Your business communications systems (servers, computers, phones, faxes, printers etc.) are central to your company being able to operate to its optimum level. If you have any disruption or downtime to your IT and/or Telecoms connectivity then your company isn't able to work - and, if your company isn't working - you're losing money. It is therefore business critical that proper attention is given to this part of an office relocation.

Many internal IT departments don't have the experience or skillset to be able to carry out a seemless IT Relocation which is why so many companies moving office call on the expertize of external IT Relocation Specialists to safely & securely transfer their systems. Doing so not only takes the pressure off the internal IT department but also ensures that everything is transferred smoothly to the new office without any expensive being made.

Poorly managed and executed IT Relocations can cause loss of data, damage to expensive equipment, disruption to key services and downtime of the key asset which enables businesses to make money (their IT & Business Phone systems!). IT & Telecoms really are the lifeblood of any company and when your systems aren't working and your phones aren't ringing then you are going to struggle to operate.

Any IT support you have in-house needs to form part of your Office Relocation Project Team and they will need to liaise with your IT Relocation company about the specifics of the move (including what equipment needs to be moved, what can be archived off-site, what needs to bought new and what needs to be recycled).

You should also take the opportunity to review your Business Phones Systems as upgrading to a new system could well prove to be more appropriate to your current needs - and better value for money (the cost of phone systems is going down).

Another thing that needs to be addressed in your IT Relocation Checklist is the need to create an IT Move Test Plan so you have a clear understanding of what IT equipment needs to be tested on arrival in the new office. Key things that will need testing include: network testing, internet access, email servers, telephone connectivity, internal extension lines, broadband speed, printers, faxes, copiers and so on.

The end game for any successful IT Relocation is to have everything (equipment, systems and phones) up and running in the new office when the staff come in for their first day in their new workplace. They will expect nothing less (and it just goes with the territory that you're going to have to work your socks off to make this happen!).
