At Infiniwiz, we understand that any change within a business takes a lot of planning, revising, and implementation to reach the goal and enforce change effectively and efficiently. When a company wants to change its business name, it can be due to rebranding, Mergers and Acquisitions, changes in business focus, etc. One may think, “How hard can it be to change the company name on the bill?” Well, it’s quite not that simple.
Any time a client wants to change their business name, there is a lot of work that occurs to make sure there is a smooth transition.
A name change for a business takes patience and accuracy.
Changing a client’s business name within multiple platforms is time-consuming because every platform and system has unique settings with interconnections. Updating a business name means navigating between different interfaces and following specific procedures when initiating the change.
Here is the list of platforms we make changes to:
- Document management software
- Remote monitoring software
- Managed detection & Response application
- Email filtering software
- Office365 or Google Suite
- Email signature management platform
- Project and alignment sheets
- Multi-Factor authentication
- Security awareness & training
- Privileged access management
- Backup monitoring
- Billing platform
- Virtual cloud provider
- Phone service provider
- Internet provider
- Domain registrar
In addition to the above effort, almost always, there is a need for a new domain name, you know, that “@domain.com” portion of your email. This involves shopping for a new domain name with the client, configuring it in the email platform, and website hosting.
Considering the scale of time and the intricacy of the platforms and software involved, our team must prioritize accuracy when it comes to a name change. Rushing through these updates can lead to errors and inconsistency, which can cause confusion for clients, partners, and team members and add more time to the process of fixing the issues made. Therefore, taking the necessary time to plan, execute, and verify the changes ensures a smooth transition and minimizes any potential disruptions to the business.
