Have you wondered what a CIO could do for your business?
After all, you have your business plans in place, and you’ve chosen your staff wisely. You’ve invested in plant and stock. You’ve spent time and money developing a quality system and you’re implementing your marketing plan. You’re doing all the right things and your business is ticking along.
But how do you get from ok to incredible?
Of course we’ve all heard the expression ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’. Unfortunately, this is not an ideal scenario for business owners and founders. So, what you need is a roadmap that shows you the pathway to get from OK to amazing. And that’s what a CIO (Chief Information Officer) does – they’re the architect of your roadmap.
CIOs understand business and management principles because they’ve worked with all kinds and sizes of organisations. They understand business drivers and importantly, they know how to apply technology to enable your business strategy.
Instead of seeing technology as a necessary evil, a CIO knows what IT can be used as a lever to growth. They can sit alongside you at the management table and support decisions affecting the future of your business, supporting your growth from a technological perspective. They can act and offer insights on how you can pivot your business to take advantage of market changes.

How does CIO as a service work?
Your CIO will begin with a series of conversations and workshops to discover just what makes your business tick.
They’ll uncover the pressure points and determine the capabilities and capacity of your staff.
The CIO will use this information, along with your business plans, to set the strategy for your growth trajectory.
Obviously information is the life blood of any business. Your CIO will develop a system allowing you to capture, manage, protect, and utilise your client information to ensure exceptional, secure customer service.
Your CIO will support the transformation of your business using a strategy first, technology second approach.
They’ll show you how to add value to your service, giving you a competitive edge.
And by using automation to increase process efficiencies, your staff won’t be caught up in manual processes or systems that aren’t integrated.
Instead, they’ll have time to use their skills to do what they do best and support the growth of your business.
