Advantages And Disadvantages Of Hiring A Professional Office Relocation Company

Moving to new offices is not only a big decision for a business, the planning and implementation of it is also a significant undertaking. One of the ways that office relocation can be made as stress-free as possible for all concerned, is by hiring professional removalists, who can advise, help plan it, and implement it.

However, there are other options, such as doing it all yourself, or simply hiring someone for the day who has a van, and so to help decide whether a professional removalist company is the right choice for your business’s move, here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of hiring one.

Advantages

They Can Plan Office Relocations Of Any Kind

Your business is unique and therefore your office relocation will also be unique with respect to the amount of equipment being moved, the new office layout and the distances from your old office to your new one. Professional removalists have experience of planning for any type of office relocation, including those which are from one side of the country to the other.

They Will Advise On Every Aspect Of Your Office Relocation

With the vast levels of experience that professional removalists have, they will be able to advise you, and your staff if necessary, on every aspect of your office relocation. This can include advice on creating checklists, packing materials, the order in which equipment should be moved, and how to make the moving day run as smoothly as possible.

Negotiating Business Contracts

Top 5 Tips For Negotiating Business Contracts

From the earliest days of mankind when cavemen would trade furs for food, until the modern-day, when multi-billion dollar deals are agreed in opulent board rooms, the art of negotiation has been employed. Whether it is the business owner negotiating the deal or their commercial lawyer, the desire to achieve a favourable outcome is uppermost in their minds.

Where these negotiations become especially detailed is when they get to the sharp end of proceedings and the contract itself is being negotiated. Bear in mind, the contract will be the legally binding agreement which both parties must adhere to so ensuring there is nothing in it that will cause problems for your business, is crucial.

Now, many a book and training course has been published on the art of negotiation so we are not going to pretend we can come anywhere close to teaching you negotiation skills from A to Z. However, here are our top 5 tips to make the negotiation of a contract more likely to favour you than not.

#1 Don’t Rush It

A contract negotiation is not a race to see how quickly it can be done, so slow it down and go at a pace you are comfortable with. Take time to understand everything that is being proposed and remember that a rushed decision is normally a poor decision.

Would You Build Your Own Car

Would You Build Your Own Car?

It’s a strange thought, isn’t it? Personally, I wouldn’t know where to start! There are so many little details and considerations that go into all the moving parts that make up an automobile.

That being said, even if someone gave me a DIY car kit and told me that all I had to do was add the steering wheel, seats, “Hello Kitty” seatbelts, awesome new headlights, and all the little flourishes that made me “me”, would it even be roadworthy?

Sounds pretty risky, and the RAC would probably laugh at me.

Wait, what’s this got to do with the web?
Right, yes, sorry.

The risk involved with building your own car is similar (I suppose) to building a website.

You could build your own website using any number of web builders these days, but is that what you do for a living? Do you know all the little pitfalls related to security, usability, accessibility, browser (in)compatibility, CSS, HTML, PHP, <include excruciatingly long list of buzzwords and terms here>…

No? I’m not a betting man, but I would wager that what you’re best at is running your business, and helping your customers. If you start devoting valuable time to building a website, have you compromised time you could’ve spent on other parts of your business?

5 Professional Resolutions to Try This Year

5 Professional Resolutions to Try This Year

We had a good break over the holidays here at Cybera Digital, and now we’re getting back into the swing of things!

We have some exciting new projects to launch, and a few other bits and pieces on the go, but it’s hard to achieve any of it and find that New Year enthusiasm without our strategy sessions and some good old-fashioned goal-setting!

Since our process has worked for us so far, we thought we’d share some concepts with you so that you could benefit from them too!

1. Strategy, strategy, strategy!
When we want to re-evaluate where we’re heading as a business, we always run a strategy session for ourselves. We generally do about 2 per year, and they always help re-focus and re-imagine how we see Cybera Digital helping our customers moving forward, and ways in which we can improve.

2. Setting realistic goals
As part of our strategy session we figure out what our goals are, and prioritise them by first determining how desirable the goal is, and then how achievable it is. This helps us to set realistic goals that we can achieve in the short-term, while still keeping an eye on our medium and long term goals.

Achieving your goals can sometimes be overwhelming, so if you ever feel as though you’ve come across a goal that needs to be resolved but just feels too big, it’s important to consider breaking it up into smaller (more manageable) tasks.
