Virtual CIO Services
RieVax knows that you need a technology resource that can understand your business. Rievax has had the experience of seeing hundreds of other companies struggling with many of the same challenges as yours, and knows which technologies are best for solving specific problems. That is why we offer a specialized vCIO (Virtual Chief Information Officer) service. A dedicated experienced senior technology advisor will partner with your organization and guide your team through the complexity of IT technology and infrastructure. This advisor will set IT goals for your company, manage your IT strategy, and set a budget that aligns with those goals.
Why vCIO services?
The goal of technology, in business, is to help increase revenue and decrease expenses. But if you're not using the right technology to help you reach those goals, there's a good chance your simply wasting money. When was the last time you took a good look at which applications your staff are actually using? When was the last time you reviewed the technology and pricing for your IT services? Have you created an IT roadmap? Are you using unsupported or end of life software or operating systems? Companies tend to spend most of their time keeping their internal systems up and running and day to day support. This leaves no time for strategic technology management. Technology is complex, and it changes fast. Our vCIO services will manage strategic planning, create your IT budget and design your IT technology roadmap.
