Managing your IT can be an unwanted distraction and employing someone full time may not be the right answer for your business. At My CTO we can manage this for you on a part time basis, freeing up your time to concentrate on the areas of your business which are profitable. You will receive the benefit of a full time IT expert within your business at a fraction of the cost and without the usual employment overheads.
The service can be provided on a per project basis, as and when you need us, or by a contract arrangement which is reviewed on a quarterly basis to ensure that you are benefiting the service in its current format.
Prices start from £45.00 per hour with an average requirement of 3 – 4 hours per month.
If you think it’s time to replace your incumbent Essex IT Support provider then we can manage this process from start to finish. First we need a good understanding of your business, IT & IT support requirements achieved via our IT Discovery process. We select suitable IT companies to contact from our database of IT Support companies in Essex and their capabilities. We can usually match between three and five companies to invite to tender which we will confirm with you their suitability. At this stage we will send them a request for proposal based on your specific requirements with a view to narrowing down the field.
Once we are happy with maybe two to three of the proposals we will progress this to either a virtual or on site visit to your offices. Before a decision is made to progress with the new IT Support provider, it can help to have a visit to the company’s offices to get a feel of the culture to ensure a match.
Once the decision is made, My CTO will manage the transition process from old to new IT support partner for a smooth changeover.
What does the service cost?
Depending on your goal our pricing is applied in two different ways.
If you need to save money on your current IT contract and this is achieved, we negotiate a percentage payment based on the savings made.
Current contract cost £10000.00 + VAT per year
Negotiated contract cost £7000.00 + VAT per year
Payment to My CTO £750.00 as a one off project charge
Saving £2,250.00 + VAT in year one
If your primary goal is to improve the service received and have access to solutions more suitable for your business, it may be that your contract price increases with the improvements.
On this basis we charge a fixed price consultancy fee for managing the process.
