Integrated Management Systems

An integrated management system ('IMS') is a system that integrates all of a business's policies, processes, and procedures into one unified management framework.

A good IMS will help enable a business to:

  • Optimize management processes and operations;
  • Optimize use of its resources and reduce costs;
  • Streamline their processes and procedures;
  • Increase efficiency and avoid duplication;
  • Minimize the disruption caused by external audits; and,
  • Focus on providing good business outcomes.

A lot of organizations don’t have an IMS, they operate with separate teams using different systems to manage their respective areas. This structure is usually fragmented and detached, leading to issues in communication, a lack of common purpose to achieve a shared goal, and duplication of effort.

On the other hand, a business with teams sharing one integrated management system, using the same documents, and following unified processes will be better positioned to optimize their operations and make the most effective use of their time and resources.
