We Understand Business, Not Just Technology
Virtual CIO Services
Most companies have a CIO (Chief Information Officer), and this role is all the more crucial in today’s tech-driven world. The purpose of a CIO is to oversee all matters related to information technology and information itself. This type of officer is found in both corporate and military structures, as it is deemed very important.
Of course, there is one little problem: It’s not always easy to find a CIO with the knowledge and expertise to make the right decisions. If you are going to give such important decision-making powers to a certain individual, you need to know that they are competent enough to make the right decisions. So, what should you do if a sufficiently skilled CIO cannot be found? That is simple. You can outsource the job of CIO to an outside company like PCH Technologies.

Why Would I Want to Hire a Virtual CIO?
There are several key reasons for which many clients choose to employ our services. For one thing, it eliminates the hassles of finding and evaluating CIO candidates. In order to make sure you have the right person for the job, you need to put your candidates through various interviews and tests. All of that takes time, and time is money.
A Virtual CIO Eliminates the Hiring Process
A Virtual CIO can Help with Budgeting
Most virtual CIO services will offer budgeting services, which can be very helpful when managing difficult finances. Because these recommendations will come from an outside company, you can be assured that there is no self-interest or graft in the budgeting process. After all, we aren’t a part of your company and would thus have nothing to gain.
The budgeting advice that is given by our virtual CIO will also include recommendations for investing in the latest technology. One of the jobs of a CIO (in any organization) is to make sure that all the hardware and software remains up-to-date. Staying on the cutting edge of technology tends to have many benefits, and a good virtual CIO can make sure that you get them.
An Outside CIO will be More Neutral
In any company, there are bound to be disagreements. While this is healthy to a certain degree, these disagreements can sometimes lead to a kind of factionalism that is not conducive to a healthy working environment. You want everyone to work together instead of against each other, but reality sometimes has other plans.
That’s where a virtual CIO from PCH can be of immense help. You will have the benefit of being able to consult an outside party who has no reason to align with any particular side in any dispute. Thus, they will be in a much better position to offer the kinds of compromises and ideas that will end those disputes.
An Expert CIO will Optimize your Data Systems
At PCH, we specialize in providing the highest-quality information tech services in the business. Whether you want to set up a private cloud, overhaul an aging data server, update your online architecture, or any other IT service, our virtual CIO will be well-versed in the facts. Since this virtual CIO is basically serving as a paid advisor, it is worth noting that the most knowledgeable advisors tend to be the best.
As CIO, our company’s representatives will take a comprehensive look at your IT systems with an eye toward making them more efficient. They can remove obsolete programs, streamline the others, and generally make the whole thing run better. If you have a variety of small tech issues (and many companies do), the employment of a skilled CIO can solve a lot of problems at once.
Who Can Benefit Most From A Virtual CIO
There are quite a few companies that can benefit from the expert advice of our virtual CEOs. First of all, new companies are often the ones that are most in need of good advice. At the early stages of a business, when many chances have to be taken, one piece of advice can mean the difference between success and failure. With new businesses, you often have less-experienced people in charge. A virtual CIO is one of the best ways to learn the ins and outs of IT management.
We also provide services to many established companies that don’t have enough tech professionals to start a full IT department. For instance, a company that is involved with agricultural products is less likely to attract a computer genius. Instead, this kind of business will attract people with a lot of practical skills and hands-on experience. So, you can try to fit a square peg in a round hole, or you can hire an outside professional who specializes in the necessary skills.
We hope that you can see the many benefits that come from the employment of a virtual CIO. Of course, these benefits will only materialize if you choose the right company, and that’s why you should give PCH Technologies a call. Our reputation speaks for itself, and we have a long track record of success.
