Moving Your Physical IT Components
Record and track all hardware components of your IT network.
When you are moving several workstations, servers, network components, and other pieces of hardware, it’s easy to lose track of exactly what hardware you have.

That way, you can know with certainty that you aren’t missing a vital component and can continue operations without a hitch.
Make sure your new office is ready before arriving.
When you move to a new office, you’ll want to make sure that you can can get right back in the game following the move. This means that you’ll want your IT systems to be accessible from day one. Therefore, it makes the most sense to get your new office ready ahead of time. This includes setting up your network components and telephone systems. The last thing you want is to get to your new office and suddenly be without access to core operational systems.
Mover-Friendly Technology Services
Consolidate your network and improve operations.
Many small businesses still live in the dark ages of data storage, where physical files must be kept on-site in file storage cabinets. This can make moving difficult, especially if you hold files that are no longer needed. By taking advantage of the cloud and an electronic record storage system, your business can bypass this issue and make moving easier. Other solutions, such as VoIP and virtualization, can also be helpful by eliminating unnecessary infrastructure components.
