Virtual CIO Services for your Growing Company

What are Virtual CIO Services?

Undoubtedly, having a Chief Information Officer (CIO) is critical for any growing company that wants to gain a business advantage through its tech investments. However, few SMBs have the resources to support a full-time CIO or IT Director to plan and manage their IT operations.

Hiring a Managed IT Service provider that offers virtual CIO services is an excellent option for such companies.

Virtual CIOs (vCIOs) fulfill the same roles full-time CIOs fulfill, albeit with a smaller and more manageable budget. A vCIO complements your in-house IT team by helping align your technology with your company's business goals, they provide the executive-level IT strategic advice your company needs without forcing you to hire and retain a full-time CIO.

The Benefits of vCIO Services

Bridge the Gap Between Your Business and Technology

Virtual CIOs help a growing company to develop a blueprint that enables you to visualize your IT resources and business goals and where you want the organization to be a month, five years, or a decade from now.

In addition, they can map out a company's tech to pinpoint areas requiring improvements. This goes a long way in ensuring an organization meets its IT and business goals.

Reduce IT Costs

Arguably, the most significant benefit of having an outsourced CIO is benefitting from their expertise at an affordable cost. With a virtual CIO, you get the services of a management-level IT executive at a comparably lower cost than hiring an in-house CIO. 


With an outsourced CIO, it's easier to implement IT governance processes and frameworks. Most SMBs don't have the expertise or resources to manage that in-house. Virtual CIOs leverage their expertise to ensure clients' IT systems are secure and compliant with applicable regulations.
