Does your IT service provider only fix tech issues? Simply implementing technology tools isn’t enough to keep your business thriving and IT environments secure. You need proactive technology alignment that provides you with a more efficient and profitable work environment by reducing reactive issues. To truly unlock the potential of your technology investments, SMBs should consider including a Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) as an integral part of their IT strategy.
What is a vCIO?
A vCIO is a dedicated resource who serves as a Chief Information Officer on a flexible basis. The role of a vCIO is crucial in delivering comprehensive IT services and strategic guidance to their clients. At True Owl, our Vigilant 365 offering includes vCIO, and this vCIO is a local person! Your vCIO will meet with you quarterly to bring a strategic perspective to the table to align technology with your business goals.
What should you expect from a vCIO?
vCIOs should proactively plan new IT projects based on your business needs and budget. Your vCIO must guide you in planning IT budgets and cost-optimization strategies. Your vCIO should build an effective line of communication with decision-makers to provide the tech expertise you need to meet business objectives. vCIOs must be agile and flexible enough to pivot quickly as the market changes.
For small to medium-sized businesses, including a vCIO in your IT infrastructure is a wise investment to help you navigate the complex technology landscape effectively, improved efficiency, and sustainable growth. Additionally, a vCIO is one of the most cost-effective ways to ensure you have the IT infrastructure and processes your organization needs to thrive in today’s markets.
