In the Post-Pandemic Workplace, Landlords and Commercial Real Estate Professionals Face Rapid Changes in Space Utilization
THE VENDOR CHALLENGE: FINDING PROVIDERS WHO WILL TAKE CARE OF THE TECHNOLOGY NEEDS OF YOUR PROJECTS AND CLIENTS
Our workplaces are going to change in order to keep them safe. Companies will be using social distancing protocols in workstation areas by moving desks and removing non-essential furniture. Conference rooms, common areas, break rooms and private offices are also likely to be affected.
When commercial tenants don’t have a vendor to perform IT work at their facility, they rely on property managers to refer someone who can handle the job.
You probably already have plenty of relationships with contacts such as general contractors and architects. But the technology needs of businesses are growing, meaning that commercial buildings need to be equipped with IT cabling and other IT solutions that can help their businesses thrive.
Completing that work takes the expertise of a competent IT provider who knows the building process, works well with other vendors, and ultimately represents your company’s reputation well.
LEARN WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE BEST IT VENDORS
Many tenants turn to their property managers or real estate professionals when they need quality referrals for construction and infrastructure vendors. As a professional yourself, your recommendations are a direct reflection of your work. So it’s important to ensure that any and all referrals you provide to your clients will lead to a positive vendor-client experience.
STRUCTURED DATA CABLING
Structured data cabling is the infrastructure of a workspace’s IT. Bandwidth, or the speed at which a system can connect to the internet, is a major factor in the efficiency of a business’s everyday functions, and properly installed data or network cabling is key to optimizing its location’s bandwidth.
WIFI DESIGN & IMPLEMENTATION
Bandwidth may make many day-to-day business operations possible, but optimal wireless coverage makes it even easier for businesses to complete tasks. With proper WiFi design and implementation, businesses can maximize the coverage of their wireless internet, streamlining connection and increasing speed for all devices.
SERVER ROOM CONFIGURATION
For many businesses, a server room is one of the most important areas on their property. Server rooms house the computer servers and other equipment needed to support and manage a business’s IT.
Sound masking is the addition of an unobtrusive generated background noise into an environment for the purpose of masking unwanted sounds. Also referred to as “pink noise” or “white noise,” the sound generated by the speakers and volume controls of sound masking systems can be customized and installed to fit a specific space’s unique needs.
Video surveillance systems are not just for security. Although employee and asset protection is the most common application of video surveillance systems for businesses, there are a variety of creative uses that can help benefit business operations, such as employee training, quality assurance, production control, inventory and more.
With an access control system, tenants can control who has access to areas within a building. Whether controlling entrance and exit doors or limiting access to locations throughout a building that contain privileged information, access control systems help manage entrance permissions throughout a building.
Modern businesses rely on bandwidth to run all essential business systems — VOIP, fax, internet access, and more. This means it is essential for businesses to partner with IT experts who can design solutions and implement best practices that will maximize network performance, security, and more.
IT MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Infrastructural IT is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a comprehensive IT solution for any business. To get the most out of their IT, businesses should have a well-designed network as well as the ideal combination of hardware and software to support day-to-day operations and drive toward future goals.
