Business Relocation

Business relocation can be hectic and stressful, especially when attempting to maintain normal business operations during the move. Whether you are expanding, downsizing or relocating for different purposes, any move creates a potential for business interruption especially in the internal and external communications of your business.

The physical move of the business is also an ideal to time to assess your current equipment, applications, services, and functioning of your voice, data, video, audio, and security systems to determine what is working effectively and efficiently and where improvement is needed.

The assessment and inventory should include all devices, systems, services and infrastructure to determine what should be continued at the new location and what should be improved upon in the new facility.

Proper planning will identify your operational needs and determine the infrastructure, selection of equipment and services. Specific timelines and plans for the installation, changeover and staff training of the best communication solutions for your business will provide a smooth transition and improved operation at your new location.
