The great thing about using ITRM's VCTO service is that we get the best of both worlds. High level advice, without the overheads of a senior hire. We're also able to use this service on a needs basis so it's a great way to tap into a resource as and when you need it, as and when our business' needs change.
ITRM delivers our best IT advisory services to you by deploying a chief technology officer (CTO) for your business. The CTO is capable of managing everything you can think of and is available to guide and work with you in a technical consultancy role. By doing so, they help you develop the most efficient technology strategy to grow your business. Take a look at the technology strategy we deployed for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
The role has been around for more than a decade, aiming to advise and support business strategy with the efficient use of technology. For smaller businesses, appointing someone to this role is a luxury they can't afford. Fortunately, IT outsourcing provides a more accessible and cost-effective solution. Our IT advisory services are available virtually and on-demand, helping to reduce the costs associated with an in-house team.
In the face of rapid innovation and digital disruption, most businesses will need access to the technical consultancy and visionary thinking of a CTO, helping them achieve their long-term IT objectives. We can assign our technology officers to meet your needs for a specific project or, if necessary, on a part-time basis.
This is where a virtual chief technology officer (VCTO) comes in. We offer this type of remote IT support to businesses that require IT outsourcing and advisory. We are now making the service more widely available to all clients in a virtual, online capacity. This allows us to take advantage of an increasingly connected world and deliver our technology advisory solutions, when you need them, without having to have us in your physical workspace.
We Support You, It's Your Business
Understanding your business and your objectives is integral to our offering, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about us trying to take over the reins. We ensure you are fully appraised of and, involved in, any recommendations we make on your behalf.
While the term “virtual” means we’re not with you 24/7, a highly experienced IT professional will be on hand to liaise with you, visit you on-site and get to know you and your team, to deliver the best recommendations for your business. We provide additional IT support and services in London should you need them.
High Value Expertise and Technology Strategy
Not only is this a great way to cost-effectively access a high-level resource, but we also give you a fresh perspective based on many years of experience in information technology and strategy. We work hard to ensure most of the work is carried out behind the scenes, causing minimum disruption, wherever feasible.
We needed to appoint a Head of IT but, we needed someone with a technical knowledge and understanding of what the role would entail, to achieve this. Using the VCTO service provided by ITRM gave us access to someone who worked with us, from the moment we did the job spec, right through to getting involved in the interview process. It gave us great confidence and helped us to appoint the right person for the job.
