7 Tips If You Are Planning an Office Move in 2016
Many companies are planning moves for 2016 and the technology portion is often the most complex part of the relocation. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) would like to change that. Here are 7 Tips If You Are Planning a Move in 2016.
1) It’s about Planning, Planning and More Planning
Technology and office furniture will likely be the two items with the longest lead times for your new space. Make sure you include team leaders from technology and office management on your move project team.
2) Consider That Technology Lead Times Are a Minimum of 45 Days
The time required to set up new circuits and phone and data as well as to schedule the cutover, is a minimum of 45 days and with some carriers much more.
3) These Systems Are Fragile
Company servers, SANs (Storage Area Networks), and computer equipment are powerful but delicate. Look for technology moving company that will partner with you and your team to provide pre and post move inventory as well as disconnect and setup.
4) Review Your Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Plan
Make sure you have a detailed list of providers and personnel o contact just in case. Review your current plan and see if it will suit your needs at the new location.
5) Include IT Costs and Contracts in Your Move Budget
Consider and review all of the IT contractual agreements that will help you relocate and include all of these costs in your move.
6) Is it Time to Upgrade Your IT and Improve Your Strategy?
An office move is a good time to review technology and consider changing processes.
7) Allow Time For Testing
Plan for telecommunications testing and create a testing checklist. Make sure to have
team members on hand for the testing.
