Setting up a new office can seem like a mighty task when you start considering everything that’s involved. Everything from finding the right location, designing a workplace, negotiating a lease or deciding whether to buy or rent the equipment and services are just a few of the critical decisions that need making if your new office is going to run smoothly.
So where do you start?
With so many things to consider it can often seem like a daunting task, especially if setting up a new office is something you have never done before. Firstly, don’t worry we’ll work with you to take you through this process step-by-step and make sure you have every angle covered. By setting up an organised office you’ll have more time to focus on your business so you mustn’t leave the planning to the last minute and give yourself time to evaluate all available options. This way you can be safe in the knowledge that everything will be completed on time, within budget, and that all systems are ready to go on the first morning in your new office.
As a rule, we would recommend considering your options for telephone lines and internet connectivity at your new office at least 12 weeks before you plan to move in. This way we can make all the relevant checks, explain options and costs, make decisions on which services to order, and manage them in a timely way. Whilst at the same time handling all required surveys well in advance and pushing back delivery dates to fit with your move-in dates.
Working from home solutions – How we can help
Remote working has become popular since the coronavirus outbreak in 2020. Indeed many businesses are seeking working from home solutions.
So if you don’t know where to start, we have some options for you to consider.
Option 1 – Phone Twinning. Phone twinning is a feature which can link your office/work phone, to your mobile or desk phone at home. There are many options with this feature. Such as having only your home phone ring, only your office phone or having your calls go to someone else completely. This is ideal for employees off on holiday or unable to come in due to illness.
Option 2 – Smart Phone Application. Our smart phone application is free of charge and downloaded on android or iOS. The app provides a version of your desk phone on your mobile, which uses Wi-Fi for calls. Once downloaded the application you will receive instructions on how to log in and set it up.
Option 3 – PC Phone Application. This application works the same as above, but the difference is that it runs on your PC. Thus removing the need for a physical phone at your home office. The user would need a headset to answer calls and use this feature once installed.
