Are you going through the chaos of moving offices, trying to keep track of every detail to make sure your move is successful? It’s a stressful time, and when the company is overwhelmed by an office move, it is easy to overlook things. One critical aspect that tends to get missed in the moving process is technology. Making sure IT stays on the radar is one of the benefits of managed IT services.
So before you get sidetracked looking for boxes and packing tape, take a look at these three factors to consider when planning your move and how we can help with the process.
Internet access is probably the most important aspect for your business when it comes to technology. As such, it’s an element you need to get under control in the early stages of planning your move. Can you transfer your current provider or do you need to find a new one?
One of the benefits of managed IT services is that we can help make your internet transition smoother. If you are able to transfer your internet provider, we can assist in the process. If you aren’t able to transfer, we can compile a list of providers that are available in your new office space and help you choose the best option for your company.
Your business needs access to phone services almost as much as it needs internet connectivity. The first step is figuring out whether you want to keep your current phone services or pick a new solution. If you are happy with your current phone system and provider – and if they are offered in the area of your new office – we can help make the transfer. If you are not already using VoIP phone services, now is the perfect time to change. And you won’t be alone in making a shift to VoIP, we’ll help you through every step of the way.
The “must have” list for your new office space might have included a nice kitchen area, plenty of parking and a good view, but have you fully explored how to make the space work in terms of technology? Though it can vary between businesses, a recommended guideline is that you should have at least 6 square feet of space for your hardware and equipment. Another benefit of managed IT is that we know what you will need to make technology work in your new space. The best practice is to have a member of your MSP’s crew help you evaluate your new office to properly locate hardware, cabling and other technology requirements.
