SETTING UP A NEW OFFICE MADE EASY - CHECKLIST





SETTING UP A NEW OFFICE IS VERY EXCITING BUT CAN BE CHALLENGING TOO IF NOT PLANNED PROPERLY.


Whether you are setting up your first office or relocating an old one, our experienced team of consultants can help you meet those challenges. ExcelLinx Communications can help you setup your new office as far as Communications, security and Electrical work is concerned. However, we do have tie-ups with local and national partners who help our clients with the other stuff. Below are some of the guidelines one must keep in mind to plan for a new office.

1. Identify the variables like how much space is required, which is the preferred location, budget, etc.

2. Check if any legal issues restrict you to use the space or if any permissions/permits are required from local authorities.

3. Chalk out the layout and seating arrangements.

4. Identify the requirements to buy new furniture or restore old (in case of office being relocated). Check out employee requirements for new desks, chairs, couches, file cabinets, etc.

5. Consider financing options such as leasing when buying bulk furniture or IT equipment.

6. Identify requirements for incoming phone and fax lines. Schedule the provider technician ahead of your move date to avoid any delays.

7. Find out the phone system requirements, no of extensions, etc. (Phone system install).

10. Identify your Data connection requirements. (Data Cabling) Note: Sometimes people prefer to use single connection for both data and voice, carefully figure out the requirements for data only devices such as NMF printers.

11. Consider whether other services (e.g. Fax, photocopying) can be handled by your computer system, outsourced, or need dedicated equipment.(We can also help you to either buy or lease a photocpier machine, call us for more details)
