Modern business face many challenges. Various legal requirements, different customer requirements, standards such as quality, safety and environment, government prequalification schemes, sustainability to name a few. What do most businesses do? Usually it’s to change management system to comply with each new requirement. The only trouble is … systems become difficult to follow and may conflict!
The IMS approach is to keep things as simple as possible. One integrated management system working for the business, addressing all objectives, transparent, easy to use. It so happens that many of these requirements and standards actually share much in common, which makes integration easier and more effective; the best option!
An Integrated Management System:
- Increases business efficiency and effectiveness
- Provides a standard for business conduct and leadership
- Improves company image and status with customers and suppliers.
- Standardises company operations and provides a basis for improvement,
- Increases business opportunities, such as becoming and approved tenderer for larger or government jobs
You may wish to achieve certification to one standard only, or you may wish to develop a multi standard system in stages or all at once. But the important thing is to build your system on an integrated basis so that it can grow easily to meet future business needs.
