Preparing IT clients for an office move

“Planning a move is a unique puzzle that requires special consideration, and the effort to accomplish it is often underestimated. It can be compared to putting on a play.

Everyone has a job to do and by the time of the first performance, they need to do it flawlessly…An office move is like that, but there are some differences.
