Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO)

Does your business have the expert IT guidance necessary to
plan effectively for its future?

Ever wish you could have a highly trained technology executive on your staff, ensuring that you’re using the right tools to keep your business moving forward? Have you ever wondered whether you’re spending too much or too little on hardware, software, and mobile devices?

Most business owners and executives aren’t experts in technology. They know they need better advice and forecasting but can’t afford the six-figure salary required to bring a Chief Information Officer onboard. At Fantastic IT we have the answer: a virtual CIO service that lets you get the expertise you need, when it matters, at a low fixed rate.

Imagine having someone on your team who could help you make the most of existing technology, maximize your budgets, and plan for the future… and only pay for the help you need. That’s what makes our virtual CIO service a game-changer.

You can get our technical experts to help your business in many ways, including:

Technology Planning

What are your business goals for the next quarter, year, and decade? And how could you use technology to support them? A virtual CIO can help you find the answers.

IT Budgeting

Looking to cut costs or create more accurate IT budgets? Want to know if you’re spending enough on hardware and software to keep up with your competitors? Your virtual CIO can fill in the blanks.


Keeping data safe has never been more important. A virtual CIO can help with online security, backup, data recovery plans, and so much more.

Specialized Consulting

If you are facing big IT projects – like moving to a new facility, opening an additional location, or upgrading your systems – having an on-call tech executive can save you time and money.

Upgrade Forecasting

The devices and software you have today won’t last forever. Your virtual CIO can help you plan and budget for future upgrades and replacements.
