What to consider when restructuring your business

Posted on 07th August 2019 at 09:46

Restructuring your business may feel daunting – and any changes to personnel and departments may affect the way your business communications and systems are set up and used. But with planning, scalable technology and the right support this doesn’t need to be a headache. Here, we look solutions which can help to make restructuring smoother for your company and staff.

Increased automation, the introduction of new technology and the implementation of more efficient working practices may all drive the reshaping and restructuring of a business.

Other factors could include a company merger or takeover, or a requirement to diversify into new markets.

For some organisations, legal or statutory requirements could force a restructure.

These factors could lead to:

If your business was to experience a restructure, do you have the ability to scale up or scale down business communications and software so that any changes can be made seamlessly and efficiency, with minimal disruption to operations?

What solutions are available?

SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) enables internet telephony voice and video calls and instant messaging and can offer businesses that are restructuring flexibility with phone numbers, as even if you move premises you can keep your number and avoid missed calls. This can also save you costs as you won’t need to update any printed company literature.

In addition, if you’re scaling your team up or down and this affects voice capacity requirements, this can be managed quickly and easily implemented with no long-term commitments.

A PBX system is also a useful solution to enable internal telephones to be connected as well as to public switched telephone networks, SIP trunks and VoIP providers. As a result, the system can share a series of outside lines. For companies who find that following a restructure they have a requirement for hot desking – or have staff away working from the office – the system’s ability to share numbers across handsets and have a number routed to a mobile is extremely beneficial – and supportive of more flexible working practices.

A PBX system also offers great value for money as it can easily be scaled up or down and you only pay for what you need.

Security and controlling access

If you’re going through a restructure, as well as looking at process, strategy and people you should consider what happens to your hardware, such as mobile handsets, laptops, PCs and tablets. For instance, if someone leaves, do you have the ability to revoke access to accounts, update passwords and remove access to devices? We can provide software training and business software support to help you manage this process and implement strategies that enable the smooth re-assigning of passwords.

For additional security, you may want consider a mobile device management solution such as MaaS360 – this will enable you, from a single screen, to control device security and manage handsets, tablets and laptops connected to one network. This not only offers peace of mind around security but enables visibility of mobile and data use.

What happens to equipment that is no longer being used?

Our team can also wipe clean equipment – such as laptops and tablets – which is no longer being used. This ensures GDPR compliance and prevents sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands. We can also recycle devices, including mobile handsets.
