An Integrated Management System (IMS) combines all aspects of an organisation's systems, processes and Standards into one smart system. This merger allows a business to streamline its management, save time and increase efficiency by addressing all elements of the management system as a whole.
Integrated Management Systems allows your organization to conduct integrated audits and assessments, as well as optimize processes and resources. By integrating these systems it can help reduce the time it takes to do certain activities, eliminate the amount of time interrupted and therefore reduce costs.
With an integrated management system, your management systems work together, with each function aligned behind a single goal: improving the performance of the entire organization. Instead of silos, you have a coordinated effort which is greater than the sum of its parts and is not only more efficient but more effective. An integrated system provides a clear, uniform image of your entire organization, how they impact each other, and the associated risks. Efficiency is gained from less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in the future.
