Congratulations. Your business is on the move. You’ve booked the removal team, had new stationery printed, had your post re-directed, but have you sorted your communications infrastructure? And have you remembered it in good time?

Seamless business relocation is a strategic undertaking that requires operational planning to ensure it is carried out with the minimum of disruption and downtime while also being on time and within budget.

Connectivity and communications are the lifeblood of any company yet many relocation projects are managed by people without the experience, skill set or time to handle such an important role.

If your systems are not working properly when you move in, you may be unable to communicate with your customers effectively, which could result in lost business.

Your business needs to consider an audit, upgrade or installation of fixed and wireless voice and data networks at infrastructure level.
Other relocation communications considerations include:

  • Installation of a new telephone system/migration of an existing one
  • Transfer, migration or redirection of telephone and fax line services
  • Provision of Internet connectivity services – broadband, leased lines, etc
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity solutions
  • Opportunity to invest in new technology – video conferencing, unified communications, etc

All these processes take careful planning. Our advice is to entrust the communications elements of relocation to a project management team that can use its expertise to ensure you do not suffer from any lost business as a time when you should be excited about your future.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
