Virtual CIO

Virtual CIO Services

Today every business, small and large, needs professional IT direction. The strategy of most businesses depend on it. Owners and managers need to know the best mix of technologies for their business, and have complexity – including IT vendors – managed for them. This is the purpose of our VCIO service.

Smart businesses outsource what they can’t do best. Power Consulting manages every aspect of IT, from support to strategy, with our VCIO leading the charge. All VCIO services are included in our standard Power Managed Care contract.

Your VCIO first works with company leaders to determine if their technology is in line with their business goals. Our process in a nutshell:

1. Learn
First your VCIO learns about the challenges and goals of your business, and about the systems being used today.
2. Assess
What processes or systems are not helping your mission. Which systems can be improved? Which systems can be gotten rid of or replaced? What training is needed?
3. Plan
A road map of IT recommendation and action plan for the next 24 months.
4. Budget
Your IT budget for the coming year
5. Report
Regular reports about network health, systems, usage, support statistic, and other IT performance metrics key to your business
