Could you benefit from the experience of a Virtual CIO (vCIO) — a dedicated resource who serves as a Chief Information Officer on a flexible basis?
Our role in serving as a vCIO is to formulate strategic IT goals for your company, and with your input, create and manage an IT strategy and budget that meets those goals. This could be a one-time project or a couple of hours a month on an on-going basis.
As a vCIO, here is some of the planning we can help with:
- Provide security and disaster planning. Security is a top priority for all businesses as breaches occur more often and are even more sophisticated than before. Small businesses are not immune to attacks simply because they are smaller, and a vCIO can provide you with a security roadmap to keep your data safe.
- Undertake a search for new software. Many companies are continuing to use old software that is hindering performance. They would love to replace it, but don’t know how to find the best fit, or don’t have the time. We’ve helped clients find and implement the correct software, increasing revenue and decreasing expenses.
- When was the last time you took a good look at the hardware, software, processes and procedures you are using? Are they outdated, unsafe, or wasting your time and money? In-house IT teams are terrific at keeping your infrastructure up and running, but an outsider can bring in a fresh perspective.
