Your Houston Virtual CIO

Considering if you really need a virtual CIO? Do you have problems with “geek speak”? Does talking about information technology make your head spin? Would you like to have another person to talk to that can explain in layman’s language the technology you’re using? CITOC provides you with your own part-time Chief Information Officer to help you understand what your technology does and how it helps you. As your business grows and technology evolves, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay ahead of the curve—especially without a dedicated vCIO.

Benefits of Using a Houston Virtual CIO

A Virtual CIO service for your Houston-based company will not only oversee your technology infrastructure but also facilitate forward-looking IT growth and development.  And the benefits don’t stop there.


Rather than hiring your own in-house C-suite level official, you can enjoy all the benefits of a Virtual CIO along with your CITOC technology services.

In addition to saving you money on hiring, salary, and benefits, your CITOC virtual Chief Information Officer will also help create a workable budget for your IT department, potentially saving you money on third-party consulting services and furthering the cost-effective nature of their role.

Increased Efficiency

As part of their role , they remain current on your ongoing in-house goals to make sure the company is staying on track, particularly with your strategic IT goals.

Plus, by focusing on all matters related to technology, you and your team are free to focus your full attention on your own departments, maximizing efficiency for everyone in the equation.

Risk Reduction

Another responsibility is to monitor possible compliance issues and evaluate risk with an eye toward developing the most risk-avoidance systems and structures possible.

Cutting Edge Technology

As experts in their field, your Virtual Houston CIO can ensure that your business stays up-to-date on cutting edge technology, systems, and trends—from monitoring your managed cloud service provider, to increasing data security, ensuring regular file backups, and more.

Enhanced Productivity

Your CITOC CIO works with you to understand your overall goals. They will then develop a tech strategy and solution that best supports them.

With your tech well in hand, you and your team can fully focus your time and attention on your areas of expertise, leaving your Virtual CIO to do what they do best. In this scenario, everyone is free to enjoy maximum productivity.

What Is a Virtual CIO?

For companies that don’t keep a Chief Information Officer in-house , a vCIO oversees your IT department from offsite—providing leadership, troubleshooting issues, keeping you compliant, lending expertise on the latest tech, and forming strategies to help you meet your organizational goals.

In short, a Virtual CIO will make sure your technology not only works but also works best for you.

As part of your CITOC package, this could be just what you need to stand out in the markets and level up in your industry.
