We provide our clients with dedicated, expert level, virtual Chief Information Officer consulting services (vCIO). Our executive IT Consulting team is available to support your business needs anytime, anywhere you need us. Whether it’s a one-time engagement or an ongoing need, we’re here to assist you. Our pricing is competitive and reflects the quality and value our clients appreciate. We are especially proud of our service quality and the speed with which we complete the task. Support can include meetings with clients, reviewing of ongoing issues, discussions of upcoming project work, vendor management, advise on the best IT industry practices, or working with your finance team to create budgets and plan the technology roadmap for the next period. Our vCIO services also include an annual risk assessment and recommendation for clients. Our primary focus is to assist you in formulating strategic IT goals for your company, and then manage an IT strategy and budget that meets those goals. An immediate benefit of having a seasoned vCIO available to your company is they have the advantage of seeing many other companies struggling with some of the same challenges as yours, and knows which technologies are best for solving specific problems. We can conduct an assessment of your business’ current IT environment, including data centers, networks, equipment, documentation, and use of cloud computing. Our IT experts catch any potential faults that might be lurking in your system to design appropriate IT strategies that are applicable to your company. The recommendations our IT consultants provide ranges anywhere from desktops and servers to applications and networking upgrades. Through planning and strategic vendor partnering, we can help you implement the best solutions for your current and future needs. Everyone wants increased efficiency and reduced costs through standard user desktop design and configuration. This assists in faster problem-solving when issues occur, and enables the use of hot-swap computers in the event of a hardware failure. Technology is complex and it changes fast. Experience shows that many companies are stuck in a rut, continuing to maintain outdated technology that inhibits performance. Many have a hard time keeping up with their core business challenges, let alone managing technology properly. Even small IT teams are often overwhelmed simply trying to keep internal systems and daily operations going, not to mention doing any sort of strategic planning. Developing a strategic technology plan can be a complex and difficult task, and not everyone has the skills to do it effectively. The ultimate goal is to leverage technology to increase revenue and decrease expenses.
