How Does vCIO Services Benefit My Business?

ECS’s vCIO services provide your organization with a holistic approach to addressing critical daily issues as well as planning and preparing for future needs.

To ensure that we offer the best service possible, we rely on our tried-and-true project processes, which focus on strategic planning and future sustainability.

Initial Planning

We’ll begin by sitting down to a discussion with you and your key decision makers. During this discussion we’ll look at your business goals and strategies and begin offering recommendations for improvement and technologic advancement. From start to finish, every project revolves around what works for you, in your industry, with your vision at the center. During this process we will get a snapshot of your infrastructure and determine key areas that need to be addressed.
Project Management & Implementation

During Initial Planning we’ll work with you to decide which projects need to be implemented and the priority and timeline for each. Our Project Managers have over 15 years experience managing IT projects to make sure your needs are met on time and within budget.
Help Desk Support

As an IT client, you and your team will have 24/7 access to our online help desk portal, allowing you to enter and review help request tickets at your convenience. Our IT specialists manage the system, guaranteeing that you won’t have to explain your issue to 15 different people before you find someone who can help. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of support and are continually working to improve our processes and services to benefit you.

Let us help.

We would love to talk to you about the ways that we can help you move to the next level.

The cost of employing a dedicated CIO in a smaller institution can be cost prohibitive and difficult to justify, but it shouldn’t stop you from seeking the strategic insight you need to strengthen your business’ technology posture.
