Non-Executive Director (NED)

Many companies do not have an Senior Executive resource representing technology, and responsibility for IT rests with another department. In many cases, they are relying on junior Technology person or rely on external advice to carry out their responsibilities. Besides providing businesses with cost-effective alternatives to direct recruitment, Outbound Virtual’s non-executive services can provide commercial expertise, valuable connections, and constructive criticism of their strategies. Smaller businesses can benefit from these services if they are building a non-executive board, seeking investors, or generally seeking advice and guidance on how to move forward.

Our virtual CIO-as-a-Service, is designed for businesses requiring a C-Level executive to sit on your board and/or become an advisor to the  CEO, offer strategic services, advisory and onsite assignments including management of any in-house or outsourced teams.

Outcomes of Virtual IT Roles

Hiring a CIO to be full-time member of your executive team can be expensive, time consuming and costly. From salary to benefits, many business owners find it difficult to justify bringing on a technology expert full time to lead their IT department.

That’s why many companies turn to a virtual solution to save money. They essentially perform all of the functions of a conventional CIO, but act as a pay-as-you-go service. So, you pay for only the services you need.

Smaller businesses who lack an IT department or are worrying if their company is too small to attract the right talent, also benefit from this solution. At Outbound Virtual we can help you avoid those costs with our virtual CIO services.

Digital Transformation

Whether you are growing, looking to grow or embarking on a transformation having a senior representative to advise the Executive Board or Non-Executive Board is vital. Having a trusted advisory to oversee from an external perspective gives a true independent view.
