3 Benefits of a vCIO Service

The vCIO (Virtual Chief Information Officer) is a solution available through our Managed IT service that gives SMB owners the opportunity to have their own personal IT consultant.

1. Improved Business IT Strategy
The vCIO is an expert in IT asset optimization, providing insight and a technology plan for how to move things forward in the direction towards achieving your goals. As part of this planning process, the vCIO will look at your company’s current network, infrastructure, and workflows, as well as your business goals to craft a roadmap for success.

As an extension of our Managed IT service, the vCIO and our full team of technicians will work in concert to bring your business the best support. You’ll meet periodically with your vCIO to go over the IT health metrics and your current position towards reaching your goals, making any updates/changes needed as the business continues to grow.

The vCIO is devoted to finding better ways to improve your business through effectively implemented IT solutions. With an eye on both your business and the industry landscape, the vCIO will ensure that you get the best results from your technology investments and remain competitive in the market.

2. Better Cost-Effectiveness
Get advice on everything from IT security to IT operations. The vCIO works to keep your network and systems running optimally. A vCIO helps you cut your operating costs, ensure that your network is secure, and enable your IT systems to run more efficiently. The vCIO will work closely with your business to make sure that you’re making the right technology decisions with the budget at hand. Our focus is not just on what is best for your business today, but on what will be best for your business in the future.

An effective plan saves you money in the long run because it means a more productive staff, a reduction in downtime, and improved utilization of every dollar invested in your technology.
The vCIO will never try to upsell you or recommend something you don’t need. They will only ever look after your business and its best interests, taking into consideration your IT budget and building around what is viable to produce the greatest ROI.

3. Comprehensive IT Assistance
Our vCIOs provide the technical expertise needed; establishing a constant line of communication between your business and ours, building an understanding of your business and how it operates, and ensuring that everything is moving in the right direction to meet new demands.

By knowing the important details about the IT needs of your company, the vCIO provides you with the ultimate customer service experience, working closely alongside you to always have your best interest in mind.
