What is a vCIO?

A vCIO is a Virtual Chief Information Officer. Traditionally a CIO was primarily a technical role, now it encompasses all IT strategy and works to align IT with a company’s objectives and goals.

As part of our vCIO services we take on the role of managing the IT and technology in your business, both strategically and operationally.

We believe that success is fuelled by a greater focus on outcomes, simplified decision making and clearly defined accountability. 

Why does my business need one?

The rapidly changing IT landscape makes it hard for a firm to decide what IT solutions to choose, as it can be difficult to know how your business stacks up against ‘best in class’ firms. This results in uncertainty about how much or how little to spend on IT.

Many productivity improvement projects lose momentum and often fail to deliver on their goals and ability to measure an ROI. Without an IT Champion in place to drive projects they can quickly lose direction and in some cases never get off the ground.

Technology is no longer an overhead, it's a strategic arm of your business

Most accounting firms find it difficult to align IT expenditure to their overall business strategy. IT is such a large part of any modern accounting firm that only seeing it as a cost centre and not as the vehicle that drives your business strategy is a missed opportunity.

The right IT strategy and solution can allow your Accounting Firm to step up your service offerings and create a more collaborative and productive office.

Once you start looking at IT as an enabler and not an overhead, you will begin to grow your bottom line and gain a competitive advantage.

Technology is no longer an overhead, it's a strategic arm of your business

Tailor fit IT to your business goals, not the other way around.
