Virtual CIO

As the director or CEO of a progressive, evolving company you make many critical decisions that steer your company towards success.

Some of these critical decisions are IT related despite the fact your core competency is not in IT.

Maybe you have a great IT company that advises you on the day-to-day stuff but when it comes to making core decisions for your overall IT direction – it’s entirely up to you.

With the pace of technology, the burden on you will only get worse. Larger companies have a CIO to steer their IT in the right direction, but unless you have a spare $150k-$250k in your budget, hiring your own CIO is probably out of the question, so what can you do?

Our Virtual CIO service not only solves this problem, in many ways it’s actually an even better alternative to a traditional CIO.

Your Virtual CIO will:
  • Bring decades of experience from many different industries
  • Have an in-depth understanding of small to medium size business IT requirements
  • Take full leadership of your IT strategy
  • Work closely with you on a monthly basis to plan & strategize with you (or even more frequently if you prefer)
  • Have a 360º view of your entire IT system, constantly ensuring it aligns with your business
  • Get involved in company meetings, constantly injecting new ideas into the mix.
  • Make sure you never spend money on unnecessary technologies
  • Help your company through any growth phases
  • Truly understand your business on every level and act as a vital link between your IT strategy and your critical business goals.

Like a true CIO your Virtual CIO is not there to provide day-to-day support – He’s there to steer your IT in the right direction and give you the confidence you really need out of your technology.
