With the new year comes plenty of changes. If you are planning to relocate your business telephone system we have some great tips to make the process a bit more simple.
Do you have VoIP? In the past, moves were sometimes complicated and required at the very least re-patching or even new cabling. With VoIP based phone systems it becomes a very easy transition. VOIP business phone systems integrate into your existing structured cabling so you can run your phones and computers over the same network.
Before Your Move
Do the existing services that you have now with your local telephone provider offer the best pricing for local and long distance calling? Whether it is by adding new capabilities or scaling back on features that have not been used to their full potential, ACS can determine this on your behalf in order to save your company the maximum amount possible.
Most companies do not think to notify their telephone vendor and carrier until the last minute of their relocation. This can cause major problems if you have a T/1/PRI or data circuit that needs to be moved. These circuits can take weeks to relocate and redesign.
To avoid last-minute problems on the day of the move you will want to ensure that the wiring you have installed at your new location is of the proper type and uses the proper connectors for the phones. It is of the utmost importance to conduct a site survey before you move to determine if the telephone jacks are appropriate for the phones and test all connections before moving your entire office to the new location.
From the planning stages to the final relocation, ACS can handle it all. They will monitor the move by making sure equipment is properly staged, packed, labeled, moved and reinstalled properly.
