Opening a new location is an exciting event for any business, but it's not without a litany of difficult decisions to make. One thing is certain, challenges always emerge. One thing you can do is plan your technology needs strategically to avoid headaches in that arena. Today, we take a look at how to best get your new location outfitted with the technology it needs to succeed.
Assess New Location
Many businesses start in one place and move to another that more sufficiently meets their needs. Whether your new location is set to be the office of your dreams or it is just a satellite office of your current location, you will need to make some major choices. Will you wire your business or will you lean on a robust wireless network? Do you have the availability of all the connectivity your business will need at your new location? Do you have the right software in place to make the move the most effective? There are quite literally dozens of variables that need consideration when you are talking about moving IT into your new location.
At Dresner Group, we can provide a lot of insight on how to quickly set up your new office space so that you can get down to business. We also will consider the future goals of your business and what effect that has on your technology needs. The assessment will make the procurement and installation stages that much easier.
What Steps to Take
In general, having a comprehensive plan in place that includes end-to-end technology needs of a new branch will allow you to transition much quicker than trying to put it all together piecemeal. Here are the first steps:
- Establish your Budget - Knowing how much money you are willing to put into the project makes it simpler to make every technology decision.
- Determine Hardware Needs - This includes servers, networking equipment, workstations, peripherals, and cables and wires.
