There is no time better than an office refurbishment to take stock of your technology and to consider whether it really supports your business.
So, if years of reacting to the day-to-day churn of business life means you have reached the point where the patchwork of stop-gap technology you have acquired starts to cost more in breakdowns, system mismatches and management headaches, than the cost of replacement, it may be wise to make some changes. However, bear in mind that suddenly awakening to find that you are trying to squeeze a size 12 business into size 9 hardware and software, could mean upgrading your network hardware or operating system, your back-end database or e-commerce server, each of which may prove expensive without specialist guidance.
It is also possible that certain high-growth applications like e-commerce or instant messaging are straining your processor and storage resources and using up network bandwidth.
Maybe it’s time to stop buying more equipment and assess your future needs and business efficiency.
If you’re at that stage and the office refurbishment provides you with the impetus to take action, it would be wise to remember that no single product is right for every business and there is always something new coming along to render obsolete whatever you buy tomorrow.
