Our IT Support Services Ensure a Smooth Move!

Moving offices can be daunting, especially when it comes to ensuring your IT infrastructure is seamlessly transitioned. At PLC IT Services, we specialise in providing comprehensive IT support to make your office relocation as smooth and stress-free as possible.  Here’s how PLC IT Services can help:  

Pre-Move Planning and Consultation 

    Before the move, our team will thoroughly assess your current IT setup, requirements and the layout of your new office space. This is where companies often fall down, and it is the source of most delays. Internet connections alone can have lead times of weeks, if not months.

    Once you start considering your new office, invite us to join you. We can provide advice on the layout and its potential. We’ll work closely with your team to develop a detailed plan that covers: 

    • Planning: We can assist with the planning for desk layout, network port locations, rack location and configuration, cable routing. Internet connectivity and working with the ISP to plan this in advanced. 

    • Inventory of IT Equipment – It is essential to catalogue all your business hardware and software assets before the move starts and ensure they are where they need to be after the move. 

    • Network Infrastructure Planning – Designing the network layout of your new location to ensure optimal performance.  

     

    Minimising Downtime 

      One of our primary goals is to minimise disruption to your business operations. We achieve this by: 

      Scheduling Moves During Off-Peak Hours – We can plan the physical relocation during weekends or after hours to avoid business downtime. 

      Temporary Solutions – We can set up temporary workstations, internet or remote access solutions to keep your business running during the transition. 

      Efficient Hardware Relocation 

      We move your delicate IT equipment with care and expertise! Our services include: 

      Safe Packing and Transport: We use specialised packing materials and handling techniques to prevent damage. 

      Reinstallation and Configuration: Once moved to the new location, we set up and configured hardware to ensure everything is operational from day one. 

      Network and Connectivity Setup 

        A well-functioning network is the backbone of any office. Here at PLC IT Services, we can take care of the following:  

        • Cabling and Wiring: Installing structured cabling systems for reliable connectivity.
        • Network Devices: Set up routers, switches, and other devices to ensure seamless internet and intranet connections so you are up and running in your new office on day one.  

        • Wi-Fi Configuration: Designing and implementing robust Wi-Fi networks for complete coverage of your new office working areas.

        Data Integrity and Security 

          Security first! We prioritise the integrity and security of your data throughout the move by: 

          System Testing: Conduct comprehensive testing of all systems to ensure that systems are working as they were in the new location. 

          Security Protocols: Implementing necessary security measures to protect your IT infrastructure during and after the move. We can also provide a security audit of your current systems and upgrade any areas that require attention during this time. 

          Post-Move Support 

            Our job doesn’t end once the move is complete. PLC IT Services offers a range of ongoing support and services to businesses, including: 

            Onsite and Remote Support: Aside from immediate support to address any post-move issues or adjustments, we can offer your business ongoing IT Support.

            Training and Assistance: We can help your staff acclimate to the new setup and address any technical concerns regarding your move. We also offer a range of training and consultancy. 

            Ongoing Monitoring: As part of our ongoing IT support services, we can proactively monitor your IT systems. 

            Customised Solutions for Office Moves 

            Every business is unique, and we tailor our services to meet your specific needs. Whether you’re a small business or a large enterprise, our team can handle moves of any scale with personalised solutions.
