Long-Term Strategic Technology Planning Takes Valuable Time and Energy

That is where MarksNelson Smart Technology comes in to play. Like many growing companies, you need more strategic professional technology advice than you have on staff, but are not ready to hire a CIO. For situations like this, MarksNelson Smart Technology offers an outsourced solution called Strategic Technology Advisor (STA).

Every business has resources to help with the day to day needs of IT, but leaves little time to developing a long term strategic plan. What if you had your own strategic resource who can help establish and align your technology roadmap with your business goals at a fraction of the cost of hiring your own full-time employee? STA is a seasoned technology professional who possesses a unique blend of IT expertise and executive level business smarts. Your STA is supported by a full MarksNelson Smart Technology team comprised of the industry’s brightest talent. STA plays an active role within your operation and participates in executive leadership meetings providing guidance on critical technology decisions.

This "dig in and get it done" approach helps an increasing number of companies who are trying to scale, but don’t have the capacity or strategic roadmap about where to start. Our experience with a broad array of challenges in a wide variety of industries can provide the guidance you need, when you need it, at a fraction of the cost. Our VP, and former client, Paul, would love to talk with you: Better Call Paul: 816.298.8482
