    Going HA

  • As the office manager and IT supervisor, I coordinated with movers, staff, administration, and vendors to relocate out Greenville office. Had 12 workstations, including 2-3 monitors, PC, scanner, 4 printers and 1 copier to relocate. Roughly 10 desks and 8 filing cabinets worth of documents, personal items and files to coordinate pack and moving.

    At the new location the entire suite needed rewiring with Cat6. Installed new 20Mb fiber circuit. Upgraded phone system to VoIP only. Priced, purchased and installed TV in conference room.
