CTO as a Service

As technology rapidly changes, it is essential for businesses to consistently enhance their company’s internal Information Technology (IT) programming and strategy.

The skillset of a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) within an organization can truly enhance your business’s technology integration as well as streamline your IT practices.

However, the full-time function of a CTO may not be useful for your unique corporate plan. It is often more cost effective to engage a professional company with expertise in these specific areas rather than spending time and money to have an employee (or yourself) learn what needs to be done.

Outsourcing a CTO’s services offers a more cost-effective solution than hiring full time talent. With short term outsourcing, you receive specialized consulting and service solutions for the duration you need.

At Prasad & Company LLP, we offer several Information Technology (IT) optimization and consulting services that utilize the knowledge and expertise of our in-house Chief Technology Officer. As a direct cost-to-results services, we can tailor our expertise to any organizational concern, no matter what size.

Whether a one-time project or an on-demand consultancy, we strive to work with every client and deliver the exact solutions needed to get the project done right the first time.
