Moving Your IT Equipment Professionally
Whether it is a move, merger or simply company growth – there will come a time where your business will have to move offices, which in turn will result in substantial and complex changes to your ICT infrastructure
How we can help
Relocating is not as simple as picking up some computers and transporting them across the street or the other side of town. No, it is way more difficult than that. Typically the average office relocation takes several steps to make the transition and post transition hassle free for the client.
Our Office Relocation Process
This is typically what the process looks like from start to finish. We try to make these moves as painless as possible by minimising disruption to your business. We do this by having a clear set linear process and have a rigorous planning phase, but we also use other techniques. For example, we prefer carrying out the move on the weekends or outside of normal working hours, so you can keep business operations as usual.
Analysis and Audit
First we do an indepth analysis and audit of the ICT infrastructure your business uses
Next we plan begin to assign who will do what, how long it should take, what happens if this doesn't work, and so on.
There will be a notice to third parties
Before making a move we make sure to backup all the data stored on your servers
During the move, we also look to decommission, providing you want this, equipment that is outdated or faulty and needs to be replaced
Patching and Cable Management
Depending on the condition of the new office, we may have to do some patching and cable management
Physical Movement of IT Equipment
Finally we get around to the main part of the move and that is moving everything to the new desired location
Setup and Testing
All the equipment will need setting up and testing to make sure everything is working as it should be
Now that the move is complete, we are here to provide post move support
