Moving a business from one location to another can be a complicated process, fraught with logistical challenges. You want to be up and running as soon as possible at your new site, so your employees can start work right away and your customers can expect the same level of service starting the hour you open your new doors.

Three Simple Steps to Prep Your Tech

Moving a business raises some unique technical challenges. Business computers rely on a stable environment to properly share files, report activity, and remain secure. Moving them from one location to another can cause unexpected issues. However, following these three simple steps can ease the process and help make sure you are up and running as soon as you open your doors.

#1 Inventory

Before you move, check your inventory! You need to make sure all your computer equipment is accounted for, before you can move it or deploy it. All the preparation in the world won’t help if you are missing critical equipment and don’t even know it! Even in a small business, properly tracking each computer system will help you deploy at your new location in an organized way.

#2 Backup

Before you pack up, back up! If a system gets damaged in transit, you want to make sure you don’t suffer any data loss. Offsite and Cloud backups can be a lifesaver if a computer doesn’t survive a move. Additionally, a properly managed offsite backup gives you access to your files even if the computer you need isn’t deployed yet at your new location.

#3 Plan Your Network

Getting your network up as soon as possible is vital to getting your business running. From internet access, to file sharing, to application hosting, your computers need to talk to each other for your business to operate. Properly planning your network for your new site will help you get running fast. Make sure the new site has proper wiring and that you have all the network equipment you will need, especially if you are expanding! Make sure you contact your new site’s internet provider and get a proper internet connection set up so you can be connected from Day 1.
