Information Management Consulting


Space & Equipment Management

PacoTech assists clients with the logistics involved in moving physical information centers.

We coordinate with moving companies and client staff to ensure secure, organized transfer of files. PacoTech experts offer recommendations regarding equipment purchases for information areas and design equipment layout to maximize space efficiency.

Before the move, PacoTech’s records relocation consultant will conduct a thorough inventory of its client’s records, paying special attention to each record’s current as well as future location. Attention to such detail will minimize the volume of files that are lost or misplaced as they are transported to their new homes. It will also guarantee that the space available in any new information centers will be sufficient to handle all incoming data and will allow for future growth.

PacoTech will ensure that all information is relocated smoothly and seamlessly, minimizing the downtime experienced by users of information that is in transit and is unavailable.

PacoTech experts can also offer valuable consultation regarding equipment purchases and procurements for new records areas and can design each information center’s physical equipment layout to maximize space efficiency.
