One of the Most Important Times to Have a Good IT Partner

can do a lot of great things for your business. Not only can we keep your systems up and running the way they should be, we can help you get the right hardware and software for your needs, save on costly downtime, and even find ways to make your technology more effective while saving you money.

If those aren’t enough reasons to convince you to consider hiring a Calgary IT firm on a day-to-day basis, however, then make sure you work with one when you need it most: When you are moving to a new office, or setting up a new location.

This is the one time when you simply can’t afford to get your technology wrong. That’s because moving your technology from one place to another – or installing a brand-new system – requires a lot more than simply plugging and unplugging a few cords. Here are just a few of the ways your Calgary IT provider can help you make the move easier, and less expensive:

By examining your new office for problems before you move. You definitely don’t want to move into a new facility only to find you don’t have enough space, or enough power, for example. It isn’t unusual to discover that a new office has problems with Internet connectivity or other critical issues, so it’s helpful to have a professional look over the space before you really needed.

By helping you to spot areas where you need new technology or repairs. There’s no sense in moving equipment that doesn’t work, or is very close to failure. As part of your moving process, have your IT partner check over your existing hardware and software to make sure there aren’t better, cheaper, or more reliable options available.

By moving quickly. Moving even a small office typically takes longer than you would expect, and extra time means more hours (or days and weeks) that your staff isn’t working at full productivity. By moving your equipment faster, and getting your communications up and running, a good Calgary IT company can save you thousands by avoiding unplanned downtime.

By testing your new setup thoroughly. Will the technology in your new office works the way it’s supposed to in a couple of days, or a couple of weeks? Your IT partner can check everything out ahead of time to make sure you aren’t in for a nasty surprise later.
