What is the most difficult part of an office Relocation?
How to best relocate your computer network, the desktop computers, and phone system? This is an area which few people work with on a day to day basis. It's much more complex than most people expect. You may have network expertise and be able to bring up the network, but designing the physical infrastructure for the communications rooms, the cabling for the facility the optimal relocation plan for the PBX and network equipments is not something your average facility manager or IT Director does every day. This is one area where it is important to bring in an expert consultant who can advise you on what's need, and provide the Project and Implementation management to be sure things are done correctly, per codes and specifications to meet your network and facilities requirements.
Once, business relocation was a matter of hoping your customers received the change of address card. Today, new challenges exist which were unthinkable then and seem unimaginable even today: how can you move a call center that handles thousands of calls a day? How do you move your e-commerce equipment when you offer 24 x 7 uptime? How do you shut down your servers, phone equipment, Internet services, routers, switches and firewalls, move them, and restore them in a weekend? Worse yet, how do you do this when your staff is already putting in extra hours?
