ASSESSMENT AND VIRTUAL CIO
"If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging."
We take the time to get to know our clients and understand what's going on in their world long before get to the point of pen meeting paper to sign a contract. If a client has engaged us in an initial conversation, it means some questions or concerns have arisen, and we want to immediately begin drawing out the pertinent details and get an understanding of what's going on. It's hard to properly treat a problem that hasn't been properly diagnosed. Likewise, it's often useless to build a technology solution that has only been pondered internally and not been run through a formal viability analysis.
Whether developing a solution from scratch or coming into an organization to stabilize the IT infrastructure, our senior consultants are able to remain onboard with clients after the initial engagement. This Virtual CIO role allows our clients to retain a top tier resource at a fraction of the cost of a full-time in-house technology executive.
