There are a lot of things that an outsourced IT team can fix for your business, and even more of them that can help to make your technology easier, faster, and more affordable. But while getting quality IT assistance often means making smart choices, know that sometimes it really ought to be your only option.
As an example, one thing you should never try to do without professional IT help is to set up a new office or move your technology to a new location.
In an effort to save time or money, thousands of businesses (from the very small to the relatively large) attempt to move their technology on their own. This is a bad idea, and one that almost always leads to numerous headaches. Even if you have an existing IT staff, or an occasional consultant who helps you out, it makes sense to work with a company like ours on these occasions.
Here are just a few of the things that a professional outsourced IT team like ours can do to make moving your technology easier and safer:
Help you find the right equipment. In the case of a new office, you might not know what sort of technology you need, or what you have to pay for. A good outsourced IT team can help with every step of the process, from budgeting, to procurement and installation.
Set up your systems and have you working from day one. Whether you are opening your doors for the first time or just moving into a new location, you want your technology up and running from the first minute. An outsourced IT partner can ensure that your company hits the ground running in its new space.
Backup your data and systems before you move. If there is one time you really want to have a good backup system in place – and really, you should have access to good backups all the time – it’s when you’re moving. It only takes one dropped or missing piece of equipment to lose your technology, so let an outsourced IT team take away those worries.
Check out your new facility. How confident are you that your new office or facility can accommodate the technology you have or need? How much will it cost your business if it isn’t? An outsourced IT team can evaluate things like spaces, Internet connectivity, etc., to spot any issues before they become problems.
Double check to make sure that your team is ready. More often than not, a new business or location means new technology. An outsourced IT team can train your staff quickly, which increases productivity and can save your business a lot of money.
Take our advice and call a good outsourced IT team like ours when it’s time to move your office. It only takes one phone call to get started, and you’ll save huge amounts of time, money, and frustration with the right team of IT professionals on your side.
