We’re moving location
What you need to consider when moving location
Moving your business to new premises is more than finding a new location and signing a lease. There are dozens of considerations you need to take into account to ensure the move doesn’t disrupt your business continuity.
- Preserving your IT Infrastructure.
Office layout and floor space have more impact on how our IT systems and infrastructures are planned than we realise. If your new premise is larger but doesn’t come pre-furnished you could find that decreased WiFi signal range/strength, lack of suitable storage for data racks, or even simply not having enough outlets or extension cords creates problems.
- Keeping your phone system connected.
Your new premise may be larger and in a nicer location, but does it have the same standard of cabling and connection to the wider UK network? If your phone system has been running on high-end fibre connections your call quality could drop when you move to a building with analogue copper cabling running throughout.
- Additional work may be needed.
All of the above may be reasons that cause additional work to be carried out in your new premise. When your IT and network infrastructure is concerned, moving location is never a simple case of plugging it in and turning it on.
WHY MOVING TO A NEW LOCATION CAN BE MORE DISRUPTIVE THAN IT NEEDS TO BE
Moving location is always going to be a disruptive process. However, for many businesses, it’s much more disruptive than it should be. There are many easily avoidable pitfalls we see businesses fall into year in, year out.
Lack of communication
Poor coordination and communication are one of the biggest setbacks to a successful business relocation. It’s important to know who to talk to, what to inform them of, and when to do it. Unfortunately, this is something that comes with experience, meaning many business leaders fall into this trap.
Budgets and costing are always major considerations when planning your move. Many businesses try to keep costs as lean as possible. Lack of budgeting foresight and realistic planning can have disastrous consequences if unexpected costs appear further down the line.
Poor space planning
Floorspace and layout planning are vital to an obstacle-free first week in any new location. It’s not enough to set out some desks and hope for the best. You’ll need to do a full evaluation of your new premise, noting where network and power outlets are and planning your layout accordingly. It can be incredibly stressful for staff if they find they’re too far away from the router to get a satisfactory WiFi signal, for example.
