Technology is a full-time job; depending on your business needs, it can be a full-time job for several people. How do you ensure that you’re getting the high-level technology project oversight, management and strategy that a C-level executive could provide — without hiring someone at that level?
The virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) services from CPU, Inc can provide you with a level of insight, strategy and execution services that you need to keep your business running at a high level.
Budgeting can be a best-case guesstimate at the best of times, but what happens when you’re implementing a new technology or service that your team may not fully understand? Specifically, if you’re looking at ERP projects, the cost and time overruns can be significant and devastating to a small or medium-sized business.
If your team does not have experience executing projects of that scale, they can become overwhelmed and provide a less-than-stellar experience for your business users as they’re bringing the system online. Teams that are new to this type of project may not even know the right questions to ask as they’re getting ready for budgeting.
Having a knowledgeable and experienced external asset in a leadership position can help the business get past some of the challenges that might come up during a project of a larger scope and scale. Our vCIO is able to step in and step up to provide structure around larger technology projects, including staffing, budgeting, timelines and actual execution of the deliverables.
Align Business Goals and Objectives
When you begin researching a new business technology, it is too easy to misunderstand or under-value specific business goals and objectives in the search for an ideal solution that is also affordable. Critical business needs should be the key drivers in the acquisition of new tools, and having a voice external to the business can help keep the spotlight on the key deliverables.
Some technology vendors can answer your questions without elaborating, leading you down a path that may or may not scale with your business needs. Having a vCIO with a deep level of experience and a great team backing them up gives you one more voice at the table to ask the questions that need to be answered before you make a final decision on your technology purchase.
Give CPU, Inc a call today to learn more about our vCIO offerings, and how you can get C-level support for your next technology project.
