Serving the DC, Maryland, Virginia metro area and Nationally.
Integrated Business/IT Problem Prevention & Continuity of Business Planning
IMPACT CIO Services, LLC is a strategy company providing business integrated, preventative IT planning. We are different from IT Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in that we incorporate your brand, mission & goals tightly into the use of technology, so that your business and your technology work successfully & efficiently as a single unit, not separately. This is a vital part of any sound & successful plan and where many businesses go wrong. A loss of just one-hour per day, per employee in a company of four (4) people can cost over $100,000 in lost revenue a year.
I.T. so tightly integrated into every aspect of a business today, any planning without fully understanding your business would be like driving a car with only 2-Dimensional (vs. 3-D) vision — you can’t tell what’s far or close, what are problems and what aren’t .. until it’s too late. Over 80% of small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) fail within one year of a catastrophic event such as a natural disaster, fire, theft, vandalism, pandemic or cyber-attack. Our integrated solutions help your business not only continue without missing a beat during a crisis but survive vs. being a statistic. Even without a crisis, our solutions will empower your business to run far more efficiently and reduce overall operational cost. Our goal is to be an extension of your company, representing your brand, mission, vision, and values during our ongoing relationship.
We are a white-glove service that works closely with you, every step of the way. Planning & prevention is key and far less expensive than fixing a problem after-the-fact (nature of the MSP model), especially after you factor in revenue loss from reputation damage and lawsuits. Our solutions are scalable and tailored to your specific needs. We don’t plug leaks in the damn, we help prevent them from happening in the first place.
Our offerings include:
- Continuity of Business Planning – to reduce your operational and financial risks, allowing you to focus on your business, not tech related problems.
- Business/Technology Audits – to ensure your MSP is providing what they should. From discovery to final plan implementation, we are with you every step of the way as a true partner.
- Security, Risk, Vulnerability Assessments – to minimize exposure of your intellectual property & data
- Process Improvement – to maximize your time & efficiency
- Process Automation with Artificial Intelligence – to minimize your labor costs
- IT Operational Best Practices – to minimize your IT costs
Our ideal customers are established companies with a clear direction and wherewithal to execute in the SMB space with 10-100 employees. We support non-profits, commercial businesses and government contractors.
