What Does it Mean to Future-Proof?

Category: Structured Cabling
November 5, 2018

Running a business isn’t always straight-forward. There isn’t always a step by step playbook that tells you everything that you need to do to succeed. However, one highly valuable trait that every great business should have is the ability to adapt to the future. Here’s a few ways that you can future-proof your business.

A row of colorful cables

Nothing is Ever Complete

When it comes to your cable infrastructure, for example, you can expect your need for cabling to grow with your business. However, if you box yourself into a corner and don’t allow yourself to keep growing, you’ll be cramped when you’re ready to move on, which can have serious adverse effects on your potential for growth.

Just in the same way you may not move into an office that fits your current needs to capacity, your structured cabling system should have room to grow with your needs.

Let Yourself Change with the Times

When a new technology comes out, there is usually a period of time where the market as a whole tests it out. As the market engages with the technology, the creators of said technology tweak it and make it better. This is actually a good time to get involved with new technologies because it will put your company ahead of the curve in adopting it in the event that it takes off. The internet was new once too and those that were late to the party found themselves having to play catch-up.

Address the Concerns of Your Space

Fads and trends can be helpful in guiding you to where the market is going, but they can also fade just as quickly. As you think of new technologies to incorporate or new features to add to your office, consider the actual concerns of the space before you make any decisions. For example, if ambient noise is one of the problems that your personnel are having, then invest in sound masking solutions rather than throwing funds into a new kitchen. Your employees will be happier for it. After all, you’ll be solving their actual problems rather than sprucing up a part of the office that doesn’t need any real attention.
