This FREE IT & Telecoms Relocation Guide will guide you through the process of safely migrating your IT & Communications infrastructure when you move office

Moving IT and Telecoms equipment can be the most complex and challenging part of any office move. So much of your business relies on the connectivity of your computers, phones and servers that you simply cannot afford to neglect this aspect of your office relocation.  The IT & Telecoms Checklist will help prepare your business for the smooth transition of your communications infrastructure and ensure you are re-connected in your new office as quickly as possible.

The IT & Telecoms Checklist advises you on every aspect of relocating your IT equipment and business phone systems including:

  • Evaluating & planning business technology requirements in your new office
  • How to get your new office set up with the right cabling infrastructure & networking capabilities
  • How to organise an IT Relocation, including top tips on how to pack PCs and office phones to avoid damage in transit
  • When to order new phone lines in time for your moving in date
  • How to create the right Test Plan to make sure everything is working as it should before staff arrive
  • How to write a resilient Business Continuity Plan to ensure everything is working
  • Whether you can take your business phone number with you to the new office

Planning your IT Relocation

Your business communications (servers, computers, phones, faxes, printers etc.) are central to your company being able to operate. They need to be re-connected as quickly as possible in your new office to avoid any interruption to business. The IT & Telecoms Checklist will help you organise a smooth IT Relocation to ensure all your equipment is safely and securely shut down, relocated, and up and running as it should on the first morning in your new office.

The Importance of Early Planning

The earlier you start planning your office relocation, the greater chance you have in making sure business is not disrupted during the move. This is certainly true for installing any new telephone and ISDN lines that have fixed lead times. The IT & Telecoms Checklist sets out all the lead times to help you plan your office move so your business is not left without essential connectivity.

How to Minimise Business Downtime

Any multitude of things can go wrong during an office move, but there are steps you can take to minimise the potential impact of a disaster – and ideally prevent it happening in the first place. A reliable Business Continuity Plan is essential to ensure all data is backed up and restorable in the event of delays or failed network connections during the office move. The IT & Telecoms Checklist gives you advice on what to include in this plan and tips on how best to protect valuable business data during the office relocation.

Don't let your IT Relocation cause delay or disruption to business operations.  Plan ahead with this essential IT Relocation Checklist.
