Integrated Management System

Integrated Management System

What is an Integrated Management System?

An Integrated Management System is a management system that integrates all of an organisation’s systems and processes in to one complete framework.

It enables an organisation to work as a single unit with unified objectives and an Integrated Management System allows the management team to create one structure that can help to effectively and efficiently deliver an organisation’s objectives.

An integrated system provides a clear, picture of all aspects of your organization, how they affect each other, and their associated risks. There is less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in future.

From managing Employees’ needs, to monitoring Competitors’ activities, from encouraging best practice to minimizing risks and maximizing resources, an integrated approach can help an organisation achieve their objectives.

Who is it for?

Integrated Management is relevant to any organisation, regardless of size or sector, looking to integrate two or more of their management systems into one cohesive system with a holistic set of documentation, policies, procedures and processes. Typically, organisations most receptive to this product will be those who have maturing management systems, and who wish to introduce other management systems to their organisation with the benefits that those bring.
