We had ourCIO come to us at a time when we really needed their expertise. Their professionalism and customer service are top notch! It's such a pleasure working with Kent Smith. His knowledge, attention to detail and all around response time has been nothing but extraordinary. I would highly recommend ourCIO to any organization.

Our company engaged ourCIO to perform a business technology assessment to look at our current IT capabilities and to plan what we need for the future. Kent Smith did a thorough job interviewing key stakeholders, reviewing systems and liaising with service providers. He delivered a thorough report on our capabilities and provided an actionable roadmap we can use to improve going forward, which will set us up for future success. We subsequently engaged Kent to assist with a couple of additional projects and received the same high quality service. Having access to a highly skilled and knowledgeable IT executive on an as needed basis has been extremely valuable for our company and I recommend other companies engage ourCIO for their IT strategy needs.
