Our service offering is built on operational experience and a desire to provide an end-to-end solution for clients whilst maintaining an evolving quality management system when delivering services to our clients. Here are our key certifications and accreditations – with us, you’re in safe hands.
IS9001 is a globally recognised standard designed to support an organisation’s fundamental requirement for consistent Quality Management processes. By maintaining an externally certified quality policy, an organisation ensures that it meets the requirements to satisfy clients and stakeholders, showing that they are continually improving quality performance, use modern technologies and processes, and are compliant with any regulations applicable to their services and products.
By having and maintaining this accreditation year on year, we show our commitment to quality and achieving excellence through robust and modern systems and processes in all aspects of our business, and our dedication to continually reviewing and enhancing our quality governance and service delivery.
IS27001 is a globally recognised information security standard which provides the specification for best-practice information security management systems (‘ISMS’). It is supported by its code of practice for information security management. By having best-practice ISMS, it provides a systematic approach consisting of processes, technology, and effective risk management. It supports compliance with numerous legislations, including GDPR and other key data protection and cyber security laws.
By having and maintaining our ISO27001 accreditation year on year, this provides us with an official accreditation that represents our commitment to information security management across all our client engagements, internal systems, and processes.
Cyber Essentials is a scheme introduced by the National Cyber Security Centre to help organisations reassure their clients that cyber security is taken seriously and that we are committed to having security measures in place.
We have retained our Cyber Essentials accreditation year on year, continually demonstrating our commitment and compliance with best practice industry standards for cyber security.
The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a globally recognised best practice methodology for IT service management, ensuring that a business’s IT services support goals and facilitate business growth.
ITIL describes processes, procedures, tasks, and checklists which are not technology or organisation specific, but can be applied by businesses and IT service management providers to deliver value and maintain competency and measure continual improvement.
Our Application Managed Services team members are ITIL-accredited, and all our Application Managed Services are based on the ITIL framework of best practice IT service management. By having team members ITIL accredited, and the service provision holistically based upon the framework of ITIL, this helps ensure that we deliver business value for our clients, and ensure we meet, and wherever possible exceed, service management standards globally.
ISO14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS), and is the principal management system which specifies the requirements for the formulation and maintenance of an EMS.
The tools and best practice processes underpinning the accreditation and our compliance with it set the environmental standards by which we will operate and how we will provide effective action for the positive impact of our environment.
Achieved in 2021, the ISO14001 standard is more relevant than ever, with a focus globally on taking positive steps to improve the climate and ensure that we act in a sustainable and eco-ethically way. Across the globe, we are all responsible for and tasked with making significant and real changes to our lifestyles and businesses in order to meet and resolve the environmental challenges we face today.
By becoming ISO14001 accredited, we are showing that we have taken steps on that journey, and we will commit to act in an environmentally sustainable way, with appropriate management of our environmental systems and impact underpinning our operations day to day.
We all need to be on the road to Net Zero. We’ve started our journey, and we’re happy to support others as they achieve their local and global goals for a better environment.
