Looking at Office Relocation as an Opportunity to Introduce New Technology

March 05, 2014
By Frank Griffin, TMCnet Contributing Writer

Making the move to a new location, whether it is on another floor or a new building, is an opportunity for businesses of any size to assess their operations in the old site and determine how it can be improved in the new location. Because technology is a critical component of most businesses, implementing the infrastructure needed to provide the IT needs of the organization during this process can go a long way in avoiding unnecessary interruptions once everyone has settled in. Having key personnel in the organization involved before, during and after the move is one way to ensure everything goes according to plan.

An article written by Brian Corrigan on itnews Australia on the challenges and opportunities organizations face when they decide to move to a new location shows it can affect companies of any size. This includes the move of a medical research facility and a large law firm in Sidney that was two years in the making.

Today's complex business environment means organizations have to choose communication solutions, data centers, IT security, disaster recovery, backup power and more. While each component is important, communications is the lifeline of any business, and that is why this choice must be made with the best available platform that allows the organization to scale as it grows.

Businesses now have more options when it comes to communications, and VoIP is one solution that gives companies of any size the ability to have a platform that is flexible, cost-effective and extremely easy to relocate if the need arises.

The benefit of having VoIP as a communication solution is it gives organizations more options compared to legacy phone systems. The first and most obvious benefit is there is a huge cost-saving potential when migrating from public switched telephone networks. This comes not only from the services VoIP provides, but also from the equipment required to manage this communication system.

Another great benefit of VoIP is the different type of services available for businesses. Unlike the voice and fax of traditional phone systems, businesses will now be able to integrate rich media service to make voice or video calls, transfer images, click-to-call on a Web page, Find-Me-Follow-Me (FMFM), selective call forwarding, simultaneous rings on multiple phones, selective area or country code, and mobile device integration.

All of these features can be moved to virtually any location without geographical limitation while keeping the same number. Moving to a new location will not require the long wait periods customary of traditional phone companies and the headaches associated with this process.

As with any new IT solution being integrated into an organization, it is important to determine what the company needs to improve overall operations throughout the company before any final decisions are made. As Corrigan said in his article when quoting one of the people responsible for a move, he "wishes he had been involved in the whole process earlier – much, much earlier."
