Your business might not have the payroll space for a Chief Information Officer, or CIO, but there is a way to get one without having a desk in your office for them—a virtual CIO system! What exactly is a virtual CIO system and how can it benefit you?

What is a Virtual CIO?

The CIO in your company should develop a plan for implementing various technologies into your workplace, keep in mind the way that your business works, and constantly try to make things run better and more smoothly. The CIO is typically also the head of the Information Technology (IT) department at the company. A virtual CIO is someone working for an outside company like SOS Technology Group that will perform all of the tasks that a CIO would perform without being on your payroll.

Why is a Virtual CIO a Great Option for Most Small Businesses?

Virtual CIO systems offer you all of the convenience and importance of a CIO without needing to set aside a major portion of your budget to get the job done. Here are some of the major benefits of hiring a virtual CIO:

  • Outside objective evaluation from an expert in the field—A virtual CIO system gives you information from the best experts in the field. They will perform a network assessment, identify any risks or potential problems, and give you a plan for fixing the issues.
  • Virtual CIO systems offer the experience of an expert without the price tag of one. They can assess your business’s needs and come up with a plan (including things like a budget) for getting the job done. Whether it’s replacing all of your computers over the course of the next year or expanding your network to accommodate new users, your virtual CIO can make a great plan for you.
