Transferring your IT infrastructure from one location to a new location isn’t necessarily as simple as tossing your old hardware into boxes, carting them across town to the new building, and plugging everything back in… There’s a little bit more to it, which is often why it’s smart to enlist help from a Toronto IT company.
Moving an office can be exhausting to even think about – not only do you have to gather up all the empty coffee mugs and files, but you have to completely re-create your business technology and infrastructure in a new location.
This checklist covers the entire moving process, touching on everything from what your timeline should look like, to how to best allocate your resources to make the transition to your new space as smooth as possible
And since we are a Toronto IT company, the checklist also includes some great tips for getting your business’ important technology up and running quickly, such as:
Contacting your IT provider well in advance to plan out the relocation of your network and systems
Making sure your Internet and phone service is hooked up and thoroughly tested BEFORE you cancel your old service
Creating a hard copy of all logins, passwords, and vendor contact information in case your network is down and you can’t access them electronically
Testing all equipment and technology the day before your employees are scheduled to return to work
