Going through an office relocation can be a daunting task, especially when dealing with your IT. Here are the things you should know when preparing your technology for a seamless office relocation. 

1:13 How to prepare your business and people for relocation?  

Make sure everyone is aware of the relocation timeline and what they need to do to help make the process smoother. Provide them with checklists, timelines, and instructions for packing and labeling their belongings. From a network standpoint, one of the most important things to do is engage with your MSP early on so they can walk you through the steps. The earlier they can get their eyes on the new site and compare it to the existing one, the better they can work with you to address and resolve any concerns beforehand. 

1:57 What factors to consider when moving your IT infrastructure to a new location? 

  1. Reviewing and updating your IT infrastructure to ensure compatibility with the new environment. 
  2. Evaluating the new office location for network connectivity and the physical space available to accommodate your servers, storage, and networking equipment.  
  3. Assessing current hardware and software needs to determine what needs to be replaced or upgraded to support your operations in the new location. 
  4. Ensuring a seamless transition of data and applications. 

2:42 What are practical tips for a smooth office relocation? 

  1. Start the planning process as early as possible,  
  2. Be flexible and adaptable to changes in the plan,   
  3. Communicate regularly with everyone involved,   
  4. Hire professionals to handle certain aspects of the move (such as packing and moving IT equipment),   
  5. And lastly, test everything thoroughly before the move. 

Now that you have a better understanding of how you can prepare your business for the move, you can now have a smoother relocation process.
