Office Relocation – Read our latest success story
For any business the prospect of moving 18 members of staff and all their associated essential day to day tools to a new location, would seem like a huge task.
Longstanding customers of ours Blackthorns Chartered Accountants, formerly of Kidderminster have recently gone through a total rebrand and office move to Lye, near Stourbridge.
As an ever growing company they provide expert support in accountancy, business planning and corporate transactions. Therefore the impact to their BAU needed to be as minimal as possible.
To avoid any loss of time and make the transition as smooth as possible CSCM worked closely with Blackthorns and their associated providers, to plan in advance what was required from all parties involved and how this impacted on each other.
From this we assessed the main IT requirements:
- Purchase of new Domain for Email
- 3rd Party Liaison
- Rebranding of Emails
- WIFI connection
- Removal of Network Equipment to new premises
- Desktop set up
- Broadband provision
A key point in this particular example is that Blackthorns had been using our Hosted Desktop service for 18 months at their original premises.
As a result all their data was already stored offsite, so once we had moved the equipment and ensured their new internet connection was live and running fine, it was a simple process to set up their desktops and get the company back up and working as normal.
From an IT view this eliminated the need to relocate any onsite servers and there was also no concerns about the loss of data, as it was already secure in our datacentre.
Although an office move sounds like a huge upheaval for the customer, we take care of the IT and eliminate a major part of the process.
If you need any advice on potential office moves or if you are thinking of acquiring additional premises, for a limited period we are offering free site IT consultations. One of our experts will have a chat with you, assess your current network infrastructure and give advice on what an IT move would entail for you.
Just get in touch, we look forward to hearing from you.
