Technijian Saved This Client Thousands As Their Outsourced CTO
A Chief Technology Officer (CTO) is a critical role for businesses in the modern world.
They’re responsible for overseeing the major strategic and long-term plans for your organization’s IT.
Unfortunately, hiring an experienced CTO on a small business salary is difficult—the current average salary for a CTO in the US is $254,000.
That’s why this client hired Technijian’s Ravi Jain to act as their interim CTO as they transitioned to a new IT company. In his time with this client, Ravi helped them avoid thousands of dollars in IT expenses that they would have had to pay otherwise.
This Client Needed Help Managing Their IT Transition
This client first got in touch with Technijian to inquire about managed IT services. While we did not end up winning the bid on their contract, the client was impressed with Ravi and the team. They recognized our expertise and experience and decided to hire Ravi on retainer to act as CTO while the new IT company transitioned.
That’s when the problems began…
The Client Encountered A Critical Email Backup Issue
It wasn’t long before the client encountered a key issue. They realized they were unable to back up their email servers, putting them at serious risk of losing an invaluable record of their ongoing business communications.
With thousands of emails at stake, the client asked their incoming IT company what to do. The new IT company gave the client two options:
- Pay $3000 for new licenses for the backup solution
- Pay $100,000 for a new set of servers
Obviously, neither of these choices was particularly attractive to the client. That’s why they got in touch with Ravi and the Technijian team.
How Technijian Solved This Client’s Email Backup Problem
The client still had Ravi on retainer as their outsourced CTO, so they asked him to visit on-site and have a look at the problem. Within a few hours, Ravi determined the source of the issue and fixed it, as simple as that.
Thanks to our help, this client didn’t have to go with either of the much more expensive options given to them by their incoming IT company. They were able to save their money and fix their problem, all thanks to having Technijian act as their outsourced CTO.
