Moving office locations is a complex endeavor for any business. Keeping digital communications up and running during this transition is a critical concern.

There’s a lot at stake and so many ways of getting it wrong. We’ve created a checklist that will show you the things you can do now to start preparing your phone system.

Prepare yourself, your VoIP phone system, and your provider

Keep Your Phone System Up and Running to Avoid Downtime

Read the Summary below. Download the full list for more.

Key Tips You’ll Find Inside

  • Start Early: Begin the process well in advance to account for any unexpected delays. It typically takes 30-60 days minimum to properly plan a move.
  • Communication: Keep your team in the loop about the transition to minimize confusion.
  • Redundancy: Consider internet redundancy options for your new location.  With everything in the cloud, it makes sense to have a dual-homed redundant bandwidth solution in place.
  • Backup Plans: Have contingency plans in place for unexpected downtime during the transition. With the right cloud-based system, it’s possible to work from home if the office has an issue.
  • Employee Training: Empower your team with training to use the new system effectively.
  • Scalability: Choose solutions that can accommodate future growth to avoid frequent upgrades. You can’t grow your business without the right systems and structure.
  • Sitewalk: Do a site walk of your new location. Oftentimes times the new location will not have the cabling and infrastructure in place that you would need to support a network. Make sure you don’t find out after you’ve moved in.
