Reduce Setup Costs with IT Consulting
It’s always exciting when the idea of a business becomes real by finding a space to conduct operations. It’s extra exciting when a business has outgrown its space and has to move into a new space. Whatever situation you are encountering, it can be excruciatingly difficult to affordably move into new offices.
CAI Managed IT can do several things for any business, whether you are a startup or an established company that’s moving or expanding. Our consultants are trained IT professionals; and, as a result, they can work with you to plan an efficient (and connected) use of your available space.
When your company becomes too big for its britches you have to get some new ones. The problem is that you can’t just move everything over at once over one day; it’s a process. There are things that you can do, however, to make the move less of a headache. They include:
- Choosing your Internet service provider - Having the necessary bandwidth to meet your business’ needs is crucial to its ability to run efficiently. If your new place of business needs to be rewired it could take up to a couple of months for it to get completed. At CAI Managed IT, we have good working relationships with several area ISPs, and can make sure that when it's time to move in to your new building, you’ll have access to the bandwidth you need.
- Property Assessment - While there won’t be any furniture or technology in place, walking through the property with our team to get a sense of where the technology will go can be helpful. This will simultaneously provide a chance to ascertain what will go where, and to make sure that all connections are in place.
- Plan the logistics - If you expect your business to remain functional during a move, you need to plan how it is going to happen. Who is moving the hardware? Do the phones need to be connected? Is all the furniture there? There are over a dozen vendors you have to deal with when you are moving to a new location and making sure everything is squared away logistically is essential to a successful transition.
At CAI Managed IT, we provide the kind of technological expertise and vendor management services that make us a perfect partner for a rapidly growing company. Call us at (800) 422-4782 today to talk to one of our knowledgeable consultants about how we can help make your transition easier.
