Offices and workspaces in today’s digital world rely heavily on cloud based storage, digital archives and complex IT infrastructure. Physical work environments only reflect a small portion of a businesses day to day operations – making it easy to overlook the complexity of software and IT services. When it’s time to move, proper business relocation specialists can ensure these essentials are not compromised.
We’ve enclosed our top 3 considerations for moving your business in today’s digital world.
1. Project Management:
Business relocation plans of any size grow in complexity as all forms of software, hardware, specialised workstations and employees are gradually moved to your new location. A designated Project Manager can provide ongoing support, clarity and a fresh perspective into your moving process. Having a single point of contact sets a clear plan for all employee and leadership teams.
The right Project Manager will work to ensure that your business systems relocation avoids disrupting daily operations. However, in a fast-paced and always connected world, this isn’t always possible. Consider discussing out of hours transportation and off-site storage.
2. Technical Support
In 2020, computer networks and systems are at the core of all modes of operation. The successful dismantling and reinstallation of IT services is imperative in securing data, avoiding unnecessary costs and ensuring business can operate as normally as possible.
Including IT engineers and support staff is a great way to ensure a seamless relocation, by supporting you before, during and after your move.
Why not use your relocation as a chance to start fresh? A thorough inspection of your pre-existing IT arrangements in anticipation of relocation, provides the perfect opportunity to consider upgrades and other ways to streamline your operations moving forward.
3. Storage and Insurance:
It’s important to consider the gaps between your “Moving Out” and “Moving In” dates as not all forms of infrastructure can be relocated as seamlessly as others. Having storage locations on stand-by, and packing/storage solutions ready, is one way to minimise the risk of losing or damaging expensive equipment.
Specialised infrastructure, machinery and data is priceless, so ensure that your goods are covered throughout transit and storage processes with specialised relocation insurance.
