To Project Manage all ICT related aspects of an Office and Warehouse move to a new larger premise for a long-established client. The client also required a wholesale upgrade of all systems to be implemented as part of the change to accommodate the businesses expansion. We were required to engage with the office & warehouse design teams as well as the client’s management team to ensure all IT aspect of the move we conducted as smoothly as possible. We were also asked co-ordinate the new Leased Line Internet and phone systems connections
We specified all parts of the new IT infrastructure including
Server, Workstation, Network, Wi-Fi, AV & Presentation as well as additional phone hardware.
As part of the overall project plan the opportunity was taken to establish a new Window Domain as well as using M365 for licencing of Office Products and Windows 10 Professional to all workstations.
Email was migrated to Exchange On-Line which added additional resilience to the business’s communication. Backup and Data Security were tightly managed during and since the move.
The latest versions of Accounting and Business software was installed to all user’s system to ensure uniformity across the user base.
The new firewall and network equipment as well as the Wi-Fi Network and the implementation of the Domain and using M365 ensured that security was significantly enhanced.
Since the initial move and upgrade the client’s business has grown substantially and because the specification was well thought through the network has easily coped with the expansion. Additional Wi-Fi Access Points have been readily added to the pre-configured core network to facilitate the warehouse capability. Additional laptops have been sourced and added as required
A very smooth office move was accomplished because of careful planning and the tight communication between all parties. The client now has a reliable network that is fit for purpose and expansion as well as having fully supported hardware. The best result though is the vastly increased security and resilience for the client’s data.
