Wright and Lord have been a client of Q2Q for nearly 5 years, based in Morecambe and Milnthorpe. They are a firm of solicitors dedicated to helping the people and businesses for the Morecambe Bay area, the Furness Peninsula and the South Lakes with the very best legal representation and advice.
What was the issue?
As part of further expansion, Wright and Lord are bringing their two Morecambe offices into one bigger building. They have three new trainees and new support staff, new office facilities including showers and a small gym, and a new staffroom.
How was the client effected?
As part of moving staff around, some temporarily to facilitate room renovation, and some permanently, to new offices/rooms, a lot of IT kit needed to be safely re-located. Networking and phone comms needed to be facilitated in the new locations, to ensure disruption to staff and the working day was minimised.
What did we do to fix?
Q2Q worked with Wright and Lord to ensure each stage of the project was planned in advance. Network infrastructure was provided by contractors, and Q2Q were then able to plan out and action what needed to be implemented to get staff back up and working as quickly as possible.
What effect did it have for the client?
Q2Q staff have a long history with Wright & Lord and know the site inside out. From Wright & Lord’s side, having someone to discuss the plans with, from an IT viewpoint, minimised the stress of moving equipment. By planning well in advance, and a thorough understanding the client’s needs, Q2Q were able to keep disruption and downtime to a fraction of what it might have been.
What was the outcome?
By the end of the project, Q2Q will have significantly increased Wright & Lord’s hot desk capacity. Using only equipment that the client already had, and making config changes, the greater majority of desks and office spaces at the new, larger office will be equipped for any member of staff to sit down and work. This massively improves flexibility in the modern world of blended home and office working, with little to no expenditure needed.
