But what is often forgotten and pushed to the last minute, is one of the most important issues for a growing company: 

Here are 5 IT keypoints you should know, when moving to your new offices: 

1. Planning for Scalability
When moving to a bigger office, it's important to consider the scalability of your hardware and IT
infrastructure. Ensure that your systems can handle the increased workload and accommodate future growth. Invest in scalable solutions, such as cloud-based services and virtualization, which can easily adapt to changing demands.

2. Conducting a Technology Audit:
Before the move, perform a comprehensive technology audit to assess the condition, compatibility, and capacity of your existing hardware. Identify outdated or underperforming equipment that may hinder productivity in the new office. Consider replacing or upgrading critical components to ensure optimal performance in the expanded environment.

3. Design a Reliable Network Infrastructure:
A reliable network infrastructure is essential for high-tech companies. Plan your network architecture carefully, considering factors like network capacity, bandwidth requirements, and security measures. Implement redundant systems, such as dual internet connections, to minimize downtime and ensure uninterrupted connectivity.

4. Prioritize Data Security:
As your company grows, data security becomes increasingly critical. Review your security protocols and infrastructure to protect sensitive information from potential threats. Implement robust firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and data encryption methods. Train employees on security best practices and regularly update security measures to stay ahead of emerging threats.

5. Consider Collaboration and Communication Tools:
With a larger office, effective collaboration and communication become more important than ever. Invest in modern collaboration tools, such as project management software, video conferencing systems, and cloud-based document sharing platforms. These tools enhance teamwork and streamline communication across teams, even if they are geographically dispersed.

As you expand and move to a bigger office, involving IT professionals in the planning and execution phases can greatly contribute to a smooth transition. They can provide valuable insights, technical expertise, and ensure that your hardware and IT infrastructure align with your company's growth objectives.
