Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about

Fractional CTO Service

What's the difference between CTO as a Service and a Fractional CTO?

CTO-as-a-Service typically refers to a broader range of services provided by an external provider or a team, including both strategic and operational technology support. It can encompass everything from IT infrastructure management to software development oversight. A Fractional CTO, on the other hand, primarily focuses on providing strategic leadership and high-level guidance, tailored to the specific needs of the business.

When working alongside Foresight Mobile a Fractional CTO has access to all of the roles available to a full-service digital agency, such as QA, designers and Product Managers. As a result, hiring through Foresight can bring with it a vast array of skillsets at rates not normally available to freelance Fractional CTOs.

Why is a Fractional CTO more efficient than a full-time CTO?

Our Fractional CTOs offer a cost-effective solution for companies not requiring or unable to afford a full-time CTO. They bring specialised expertise, industry insights, and leadership on a flexible basis, aligning with the company's specific needs and budget. This efficiency is particularly beneficial for startups and SMEs looking for high-level tech guidance without the commitment of a full-time executive salary.

What's the difference between an Interim CTO and Fractional CTO?

An Interim CTO typically fills a temporary vacancy, often during a period of transition or until a permanent CTO is hired. In contrast, a Fractional CTO provides ongoing strategic leadership in a part-time or consultative role. They offer their expertise for a fraction of their time, making them ideal for startups or smaller businesses that need CTO services without the cost of a full-time CTO. Both Fractional and Interim CTOs are available through Foresight Mobile.

Can a Fractional CTO work remotely?

Of course! A Fractional CTO can work very well remotely, and our London customers can see significant cost savings when compared with staff based in the capital. This flexibility allows businesses to tap into top-tier tech leadership without geographical limitations. Remote Fractional CTOs can effectively manage technology strategies, lead remote tech teams, and communicate with stakeholders through digital platforms that don’t require face-to-face meetings.

Why do I need a CTO?

A CTO is crucial for any business looking to leverage technology for growth and efficiency. We bring a strategic vision for using technology to improve products and services, optimise operations, and stay competitive. Our CTOs ensure that your technology investments align with your business goals, provide expertise in product development and innovation, and guide the company through technological challenges.

What are the day-to-day responsibilities of a CTO?

Our Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) play a pivotal role in steering the technological direction of your company. This includes overseeing the research and development of new technologies, managing internal and external tech teams, and ensuring the company's technology strategy aligns with its business goals.

Our Fractional CTO will help with high-level product and infrastructure decisions, staying ahead of technology trends, and ensuring the cybersecurity and technological health of the organisation.

How much does a fractional CTO cost?

Our Fractional CTOs can range from £95 to £250 per hour depending upon experience. Like a good accountant however, a good CTO will save a business more than they charge in fees.

The level of engagement a Fractional CTO requires can vary between projects, but around 10-15% of the total development costs is pretty typical. As the size of your internal team grows these percentages generally come down as the CTO becomes more of an advisor and consultant, rather than handling the day-to-day aspects of building your service.
