IT Outsourcing Advisory Service Overview

Why does my company need a CIO advisor?

Most companies neglect to put anyone in the position of CIO/CTO advisor, and so they miss out on many attainable, transformative solutions to their problems. CIOs are not regular employees – they are brought in to offer solutions to improve your IT services, and the positive effect of the work they do can last for decades. This person will work closely with your existing team. Working together, they will easily identify key gaps in your system where technology could be particularly useful. Simply put, your professional CIO/CTO Officer will ensure that your company uses its available resources to the fullest.

It is vital for any company looking to improve their efficiency and efficacy to call on someone with an expert level of knowledge in the IT sphere when needed. Our CIO/CTO advisory service allows companies to deal with various difficulties with confidence.

Every consultant of NSW Asia Pte Ltd is highly trained and has a high level of experience – we only take on the best of the best. Your virtual CIO/CTO advisor will be able to find solutions to your company’s individual needs in a short time, and act accordingly.

More on our Virtual IT Services

Virtual IT director & vCIO service

Our Virtual IT Director and Virtual CIO service will provide you with the full expertise and capability of an experienced IT professional, ensuring your success at board level through strategic investments and clever use of technology. Whether you’re an ambitious start-up, SME or commercial enterprise, we can help.

Embracing digital transformation – or, why choose a vCIO?

Forward-thinking organisations increasingly look to digital advancements and new technologies to grow and survive in a competitive business environment. But choosing the right technologies, services, processes and people to achieve digital transformation can be risky, time consuming and costly.
With the expertise of our vCIO, your ICT strategy will form a solid platform to aid future growth and success. We help minimise risks, maximise efficiency and plan to achieve your business goals; with proven skills across a wide range of sectors, we have the experience to design and implement the services, solutions and strategies to do it.

Typically, SME companies do not have the benefit of a board-level representative with a strong blend of commercial, leadership and technology skills to direct the process of digital transformation. This is primarily due to the struggle to justify paying them full-time for a one-off project. A Virtual CIO is an ideal solution.

Being responsible for ensuring all elements of technology work well together, we make sure your ICT is strategically sound, with all the moving pieces working in unison, and, above all, that it provides a measured return on your investment. We are confident that you will see a difference in your business by simply looking at customer feedback before and after our services.

The key benefits of our virtual CIO services include:

  • A fully present and active member of your team, there when, and only when, you need them
  • Being a cost effective alternative to an IT Director – fewer HR issues and overheads
  • Development of a technology roadmap in line with your business needs
  • Independent consultancy and technical advice at all levels, from operations up to boardroom
  • Informed ICT decision-making and strategic guidance based on business goals and growth
  • Cost reduction through procurement support and best management of expenditure
  • Accountability for a positive return on your well-implemented ICT investments

Key Deliverables from your vCIO

How a virtual CIO can help your business

Budget and cost control – understand the full picture of your IT expenditure, and ensure any future spending is based on a measured return on investment.

Decision making – our technical and commercial experience will help you make informed decisions to shape the future growth of your business.

Communication skills – many SMEs don’t understand technical language but do understand commercial language. Our Virtual CIOs can help by interpreting technical jargon into commercially meaningful language.

Stay ahead of the curve – our vCIO will proactively keep your business ahead of technology curves, ensuring you are always aware of the latest advancements and, if appropriate, present a business case for their adoption.

Data management – the management of an organisation’s data is a vital role where confidentiality, integrity and availability are critical to success. A vCIO will leave no stone unturned to ensure the protection of your data, implementing the correct policies and procedures and managing them going forward.

Project management – IT projects need not be undertaken at risk; all you need is an experienced and capable team. A virtual CIO will take the lead and the overall responsibility for the implementation of IT projects, to mitigate risk and ensure success.

Scale up or down to suit – our services are extremely flexible and can be configured to suit your business in terms of time and budget. Hiring a skilled IT Director on a full-time or interim basis can be a costly exercise, whereas engaging with one of our virtual CIO’s brings immediate results while requiring no up-front fees.
