If your organization lacks a true leader in your technology department or you lack a technology department, we can help!

So, you have read about our CIO Services, but your MSP (managed service provider) offers you a CIO as part of their services. Why would you not take advantage of that? We have worked with MSPs and they serve a worthwhile purpose to many companies. However, by utilizing a CIO from your MSP, you are putting your organization at a disadvantage. The CIO typically makes critical decisions regarding technology. Your MSO manages that technology. In essence, you let someone that works for your vendor make purchasing decisions regarding that vendor. Unfortunately, we have seen organizations fall into this and not realize the resulting issues until it had cost them a significant amount of money.
