vCIO is able to review the efficiency of your current systems, security, and backup and disaster recovery plans. Then the vCIO will be able to develop plans that align with your business goals regarding your network and security, and finally actually develop those plans and put them into action. That is where the benefits of a vCIO come in, as the vCIO gives you the best of both – all of the same services as an on-site tech department, minus the excessive cost. Not to mention without a vCIO, all of this would likely be left up to the business owner and take away valuable attention from growing and running the company. The Development Roadmap is the ultimate business asset, as it provides a single-pane-of-glass view into all aspects of technology within an organization. That gives you the ability to invest more on keeping your business running on efficient up-to-date technology, and less on staffing. Having a vCIO lets you focus on running your business, while your vCIO focuses on making sure your technology is performing at its best. Not only do you have the ability to ask if a potential technology investment is right for your business but vCIOs are constantly learning and advising what works best with your business’ goals. Through creating security policies and implementing the right patches and updates in a timely manner to prevent vulnerabilities, your vCIO team guards your business so that you have peace of mind. vCIO will understand your SMB’s core goals and contribute to meet those goals. Through creating efficiencies, business process optimization, and strategic technology direction, VCIO services reduce overall costs and drive revenue. You get all the benefits of a CIO for less than half the cost, plus an entire team of experts backing your business to ensure that your visions become a realization.
