An office move is often a stressful time for a business. It requires a significant amount of planning to ensure the move goes as smoothly as possible, with minimum disruption and downtime – particularly during the IT relocation process.
Whether you are making the move to a larger office, setting up multiple locations or even forming a new business, relocation requires a specialist to ensure that risks are minimised in terms of system issues and installation errors.
The finer details are the important ones, so finding an IT relocation partner that can fully assess the entire move, taking everything into account, and who will liaise with all necessary third parties – ensuring a smooth transition, is essential.
IT RELOCATION SOLUTIONS: CONSIDERATIONS
When starting the process of moving to a new office it is important to consider the following:
Finding an IT relocation partner
Firstly, finding the right IT relocation partner is vital. The company you choose must have valid and credible experience in the field and will have carried out multiple office moves for their IT clients in the past. They should know the ins and outs of relocating IT systems successfully. Having the right IT partner will give you the confidence that your move will be carried out seamlessly and stress free.
Take into account your entire infrastructure
Different departments, external teams and offices should all be taken into account during an office move. Auditing your entire infrastructure will ensure that nothing is missed during the IT relocation process.
Consider move timings
Why not move your IT systems out of working hours? This will give you time and space to move the systems without worrying about the possibility of downtime for your in-house teams. Productivity will not be affected and you can have everything back up and running for when everyone is back in the office.
Once you have moved and systems have been trialled and tested, we would always recommend you invest in some post-move support to ensure that you have an expert on hand just for those minor issues that may arise once you are settling into your new work space.
