The management system standard is effectively a guarantee that the organisation has reached an exceptional level of proficiency in one or more of its management systems. It is now seen as the ‘corporate gold standard’.
Potential business partners and valuable prospective clients increasingly demand that certified management systems are in place.
Certified management systems assure consumers of an organisation’s credibility. They demonstrate its competence, its statutory compliance and the dependability and quality of its products and services. They have been shown to be valuable in expanding an existing client base, securing repeat business, stemming client turnover and entering new markets.
In addition, a certified management system offers an excellent approach to improving operational performance and efficiency, so reducing costs and allowing an organisation to react rapidly to exploit market opportunities.
Today the certified management system is one of the foundations of a successful business strategy for organisations in the UK and worldwide.
