How the Service Works

Great CTOs provide a premium service, but not all businesses need that level of support on a full time basis.

In today's world, all businesses of any scale need the support of a CTO to a greater or lesser extent. However, smaller businesses can find the costs of employing a CTO exceed their budget.

Hence, we provide a seasoned CTO on a retained basis to work with you for a defined number of days per month. They will always be on the end of a phone or an email to provide advice and guidance.

The benefit is you end up with a 1st rate CTO services, great strategies and deliver management at cost you can afford. Enabling you to invest in better quality next level management, and better outcomes.
