If you have upgraded your IT system to the cloud and done away with physical computing infrastructure, moving offices is a much easier task than it used to be. Simply call us to quickly set up a great connection in your new building and you’re good to go. But if you’re still using a more traditional system, an office move can be quite difficult. If you’re thinking about an office relocation and you’re concerned about how to manage your IT systems, call the experts at CTRL I.T. for both advice and assistance.
Firstly, any office relocation is stressful enough, what with so much organising and planning over a period of months before the big day arrives. And it is incredibly important to plan exactly how you are going to transfer your physical computing infrastructure as well as the usual desks, chairs and files. Remember, your IT systems is basically the key to your company and you cannot afford for it to become damaged or compromised. Additionally, once you arrive safely at your new location, you are going to want to get everything set up as quickly as possible and in perfect working order. Not up to the task yourself? Contact CTRL I.T.
The first thing which must be done during an office relocation is to power down and dismantle your computing infrastructure. Of course if you’re using a cloud host, this is a much quicker step and all you would need to do is package up your computers and other electronic items. Make sure, however, that the packaging is protective and that no damage can occur to the machines. Additionally, your phone system needs to be transported with care and set up again at the other end. Both of these tasks are theoretically possible for you to do yourself but we would recommend getting in commercial movers with experience handling computing infrastructure anyway. And if you do have a large physical IT system we would strongly advise against trying to do anything yourself at either end of the move; it’s not worth the risk.
So once you’ve packed up and moved, the real fun begins. Our engineers have extensive experience setting up systems and an office relocation always requires exactly that. Regardless of whether you are using a traditional computing infrastructure or the cloud to host your data, getting connected once again and ensuring your IT systems are running flawlessly is a crucial task. We would strongly recommend you do not attempt this by yourself unless you are experienced and competent with all aspects of IT installations.
If you’re planning an upcoming office relocation talk to CTRL I.T. today and see how we can help you. We understand how stressful this time can be and are happy to take the responsibility of your computing infrastructure off your hands so you can concentrate on other aspects. By placing the care of your IT systems on our shoulders, you can rest assured that our engineers will work carefully from beginning to end, leaving your new office with a perfectly set up computer infrastructure ready for you to begin doing business again.
