Moving and installing business technology is a challenging part of moving office. A business cannot afford to be without communication, networking and broadband access. In this article, we’re taking a look at some important points you’ll want to consider as you plan to relocate your business.
An IT relocation plan needs to be started as early as possible. Several steps are required to make this plan effective. Firstly, evaluate the business technology requirements for the new office. If it is larger than the existing one, there’s a good chance you’ll need more computers, printers and phones.
Be sure to assess the new office connectivity resources and be aware of any restrictions the landlord may have made. For security purposes, create a data backup plan to safeguard your business data during the move. If you use a cloud backup service, check that the data is up to date.
Hire technicians to install the equipment and test that everything is working fine for the staff on their first day at the new office. To avoid business disruption, this may need to be done overnight or at the weekend outside of business hours.
IT and telecoms infrastructure is vital to companies. If internet access is down and the phones are not working, basic business operations will be severely affected. This is why it’s important to have a well thought out IT relocation plan. If you are not confident in your IT skills, hire an IT support expert to make the plan for you.
