Reviewing your IT equipment and business phone systems
Moving office is the perfect time to get your company up-to-date. This could mean a stylish office fit-out where your company can get a brand new look to match their new work space. It could mean new energy systems which improve your office environment and save your company money in the long run. Or it could mean a complete revamp of your IT equipment and business phone systems to make sure your company is on the ball when it comes to communication.
Overhauling any of your data systems will invariably save your company time and money and furthermore enable you to stay better connected to your business partners, your clients and your own staff. This is where an IT and telecoms specialist can be brought in to make a qualified assessment of your current operating systems and recommend worthwhile upgrades and updates.
For a smooth transition of your IT and business phone systems when you move office, you will need to review the following: -
Your business phone system infrastructure
Is your current phone system up-to-date enough or does it need upgrading? Can it cope with any company growth (think 5-10 years ahead)?
Is there cabling at the new site and will it be sufficient for your IT needs?
Your data systems
Does your company rely heavily on a reliable internet connection? If so, is the broadband speed at the new office sufficient for your company needs? Do you require a wireless connection in your new office?
Your out of office options
Remote working solutions are becoming more popular now so it is a good time to consider a teleworking solution that could save you money in the long run.
Line rental provider
Who currently maintains your phone lines and what is the cost? It is advisable to shop around to see whether you can get a more competitive quote.
Do you want to keep your main phone number or introduce a non-geographic number (NGN) to your business before you actually move office? These numbers allow you to route calls to any existing landline or mobile.
