The Client’s Challenge

elseco needed to consolidate two offices into one larger space in DIFC. With 60 staff members working in a mix of open-plan and closed offices, the move was time-bound to minimize downtime for their wholesale operations. The move also required relocation and re-installation of their complex IT systems before open of business on the next working day.

Crown Workspace’s Solution

Having previously partnered with elseco through Crown Records Management for secure destruction services and scanning and digitizing of files, we had developed a strong relationship of trust and familiarity with the way they operated. Leveraging this foundation, we coordinated a comprehensive solution, working two shifts over a weekend to pack and move both offices to the new location. We began the relocation on Friday at 6 PM and efficiently managed the process, ensuring a smooth transition. Our team worked tirelessly, and by Sunday at 6 PM, we had handed over the site, ready for elseco to start using the new facility from Monday at 8 am.

In addition, our specialist IT relocation services ensured that the IT infrastructure was set up and ready to go live by Saturday at 7 PM. With our proficiency in moving server equipment, we meticulously handled their high-end servers, ensuring their safe transfer to the new premises. We set up the entire server rack, completed cabling, and conducted thorough testing to guarantee a seamless transition.

The Results

The relocation of elseco’s Middle East offices and IT infrastructure was completed ahead of schedule, minimizing downtime and ensuring smooth operations for elseco’s wholesale activities. Our careful handling of their IT systems contributed to a seamless transition, earning positive feedback and leaving the client highly pleased with the outcome.
