Relocating Office Technology Equipment
Moving is always a disruptive experience, no matter how much you put in to planning the relocation. But a lot of disruption can be minimized with a bit of careful thought and prior planning. The best you can hope for when you move office is to minimize the disruption for your business, but unfortunately, many companies do not have the skill or understanding to relocate all their technology equipment seamlessly without so much as a minor glitch. Even if your company has a dedicated IT Team, they may not have the time to plan and manage a technology relocation from start to finish.
Thankfully, there are experts who deal with this sort of thing on a daily basis and can coordinate this important aspect of the move on your behalf. They are IT & Telecom Solution Providers, and Help Moving Office can help you find one in your local area.
What is the role of an IT & Telecom Solution Provider?
They will start by evaluating all your current applications and decide whether they need an upgrade or just a simple transfer for the new facility. They will coordinate all the new infrastructure in the new office and place all carrier orders for phone lines, ISDN lines, broadband and networking capabilities.
One of the most complex aspects of a technology relocation, is installing the right infrastructure in the new office so that your systems work straight away once they're reconnected. They focus on the intricate details by previewing all of the relocation plans and understanding the database for cabling and telephone systems, so that when your staff arrive on Monday morning, everything is working as it should and business can resume as normal.
Businesses may find it useful to have an IT Relocation Checklist so they can work with their IT & Telecom Solution Provider in making sure no stone is left unturned when it comes to this crucial part of their office relocation.
