Where Do I Turn for Technology Advice?
Larger companies have CIOs to make day-to-day technology decisions, and provide guidance to the CEO, CFO and COO. Unfortunately, many small business owners struggle with making technology decisions because they don’t have a CIO in-house. While most SMBs rely on Attorneys, Bankers, and CPAs to act as trusted advisors, small businesses often have nowhere to turn to help them evaluate the costs and benefits of technology. Without the in-house expertise to rely on, a Virtual CIO becomes your trusted IT business partner.
What Can CSM’s Virtual CIO Service Do For My Business?
Our Virtual CIOs make your business’s bottom line their top priority. Our first order of business is to gain a deep understanding of your unique business, your challenges, and your competitive landscape. Your Virtual CIO’s second priority is to provide guidance on how to reduce and control your infrastructure technology support costs. The third step for your vCIO is to assess your company’s technology requirements and help design processes and infrastructure to meet those requirements. Our next process is to help design backup and disaster recovery procedures to insure the viability of your company in the event of a catastrophe. Lastly, your Virtual Technology Advisor will provide guidance on how to use Information Technology to streamline your business and use IT as a competitive weapon to defeat your competitors and dominate your market.
