Relocating your business is stressful enough without having to deal with your technology – why not leave it to PACE Technical instead?
There are few things more exciting than a new beginning. Moving your business into a fresh space can be the start of great things to come – but it can also be a source of major stress, especially where your technology is concerned. Transferring your IT infrastructure from one location to a new location isn’t necessarily as simple as tossing your old hardware into boxes, carting them across town to the new building, and plugging everything back in. There’s a little bit more to it.
Moving an office can be exhausting to even think about – not only do you have to gather up all the empty coffee mugs and files, but you have to completely re-create your business technology and infrastructure in a new location. Here are the 5 key questions you should be asking yourself right now:
- What are the Internet options available at the new location and how will I ensure that my staff members are properly connected on the first day of business at the new location?
- How will I perform a comprehensive site survey to ensure everything is considered (wiring, power, layout, wireless, etc.)?
- Is my existing phone system adequate and moveable or is it time to consider a change?
- Do we need to move servers to the new location or is now the time to consider moving some or all of the infrastructure to the cloud and ensure all business systems are unaffected by a move?
- Have I considered any technology pitfalls? (Is there enough power in the server closet? Do I have building access to the telephone closet? Any climate or ventilation issues to consider?)
With all of the other challenges coming your way, wouldn’t it be great to be able to pass off the tech portion of your move to a trusted partner in IT like PACE Technical?
“Simple” may not be how you imagine the moving process to be when you consider all of the hundreds or thousands of moving parts that are involved in your business systems, but PACE Technical will make a believer out of you! We have extensive experience in IT projects like this, working with businesses to ensure that operations flow smoothly from one location to the next. Any time your business operations are down, you’re losing money — and that is certainly not a state that you want to maintain for any period of time.
When you engage the professionals at PACE Technical early in the process, we’re able to work with you and the building maintenance teams to ensure that the move goes as smoothly as possible. We can even work with you to optimize specifics such as where Wi-Fi hotspots should be placed, the optimal location for wiring and phone systems, and more.
Dealing with older, outdated, and legacy equipment? We can help you bring all of your IT systems, telephone systems, and communication networks up-to-date so you can take full advantage of the move to make a change without spending a fortune. You may find that when you’re moving is an ideal time to consider moving some or all of your business systems to the cloud. If your business systems are in the cloud, the systems don’t have to go down for the move and continue to be safe, available and uninterrupted by the move.
The PACE Technical team of IT professionals knows just how to work with building maintenance teams to gain access to critical information and areas such as riser rooms and communications systems. Let us put our experience to work for you to make your next corporate move a breeze!
Getting your technology up and running again requires careful planning, figuring out what needs to be in place ahead of time, and understanding that there is more to your IT environment than just technology.
The PACE Technical team can help you get your office set up exactly the way you need it to be by:
- Mapping out and installing needed cabling, allowing your hardware to go just where it should
- Moving existing critical equipment (servers, switches, firewalls, etc) or helping you make a migration of business systems to the cloud
- Ordering new hardware and equipment to update and improve your infrastructure
- Setting up workstations
- Installing and testing wireless Internet technology
- Configuring network setting for printers, scanners, etc.
- Setting up server racks and other needed hardware support
- Coordinating with vendors to bring services such as Internet and phone back online
- Ensuring endpoint protection and other IT security components are installed and configured correctly
- Verifying that all needed systems and processes are in place, including data backups, remote access capabilities, and email servers
Setting up a new location can be complicated, but with the right support, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Before you tackle your moving to-do list, considering handing off the technology aspect to a team of professionals that have the experience and knowledge needed to make your move a success.
