While many people see an office move as an exciting time, it can also be a stressful situation for sure. Especially if it's your responsibility to get everything from one site to the other, and up and working as quickly as possible
Of course, the fact that there will be pressure on you to ensure drops in productivity and downtime is are small as possible won't help your stress level much either!
The value of an office move
Office moves often boil down to the allocation of resources. In fact, by changing your premises, you can save a whole load of money, almost overnight. That is as long as you can get things back up and running as quickly as possible. After all, having weeks of downtime or less than optimum productivity can soon eat up any financial gains you have made.
The problem is that office relocations, while unavoidable, can be complicated and specialist work.
The big issue here is that if you need to move premises for whatever reason, you cannot avoid shifting all of your IT hardware, software and networks as well.
What that means is it's not just a matter of mapping out the office and packing up computers and printers so they will be safe on the journey. Instead, you will need to deal with relocating things like your servers and networks as well.
Unfortunately, that means your data can be at risk. Both in the real and the virtual world while this is going on. Then there is the logistical headache you can expect from moving the hardware from one place to another.
