Change is a part of any successful business. However, it’s difficult to adapt without some help from the right equipment. This may include desktop computers, notebook computers, printers, photocopiers, monitors, servers, wireless internet solutions and more. Whether your business is undergoing a change in staff, location, systems, methods, projects or technologies, you can count on equipment rental as a temporary solution.
SETTING UP A TEMP WORKPLACE
Is your rapidly expanding company looking for new office space that’s just the right size and in an ideal location? The search can sometimes prove challenging. However, in the meantime you have the option of moving to a temporary office space. You can leave your fragile IT equipment to be carefully packed up and transported once you’ve found the perfect premises. All you need to do is hire replacement hardware for the alternate workplace so business can continue as usual.
HIRING TEMP WORKERS
For a variety of reasons, it may not be feasible to only employ permanent staff in your business. In many industries, it makes sense to hire temporary workers or seasonal contractors. They can assist with an immediate project or abnormally busy period. Of course, even temp staff require all the tools of the trade to carry out their tasks. In this situation, hiring equipment like desktop PCs and laptops for each person means you won’t have to pay for expensive new hardware that you won’t actually need in a few weeks or months.
If you’ve decided to put together a comprehensive induction and training program for a significant intake of new staff, or you’re keen to provide specific training for advanced skills and qualifications among your existing staff, it’s prudent to be well prepared. Establish a comfortable training environment with workstations for individual trainees and technology to assist the training facilitator, such as a wirelessly connected interactive whiteboard.
TRYING SOMETHING NEW
Trial and error is often the best way to improve operational efficiency or make exciting discoveries. So how can you ensure your business is brave enough to try new things without taking unacceptable budget risks? Well, a combination of temporary staff and hired equipment gives you full capability for a fraction of the cost. If everything goes smoothly, you’ll be happy to invest in a technology upgrade that supports your new direction. And if it doesn’t quite go to plan, simply wrap up the trial, hand back the hired equipment and move on to the next big idea.
Migrating existing systems and data, tailoring business management applications and training internal departments on new requirements – this process can cause significant disruption to a business. Fortunately, you might be able to implement a temporary replica of the updated hardware. For example, this could include servers and network infrastructure. These can be used to get everyone up to speed before the new system is officially brought online at each business location.
