Is it possible to move your business to new premises and get everything up and running without a hitch?
We’re told that moving house is one of the top 5 most stressful things we do but we think moving a business has the potential for even more stress.
If you lose a favourite piece of furniture or can’t find the kettle at home, it’s annoying but not a disaster. If you lost your phone and email in your business you might as well not exist. The potential loss to your business from annoyed or even just puzzled customers is huge. Getting communications back to normal as soon as possible is essential.
We’ve recently been involved in two business moves (one for the world famous percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie) and found that as well as making sure that everything possible is done to minimise disruption to the IT service the biggest influence we had was in keeping staff informed of what was happening.
In one case the firm’s internet service provider hadn’t provided a service and as well as resolving the problem with them we reduced aggravation for the staff by letting them know exactly what was going on.
If you’ve got a move coming up, give us a call and we’ll help you to plan it so that to the outside world, its business as usual.
