We are a Rated Supplier on the CIPS Sustainability Index,
which was developed to create a consistent sustainability measurement to support purchasing and, in doing so, create significant time and cost efficiencies.
In a Business environment a sustainable business is typically expressed as an enterprise that has no negative impact on the global or local environment, community, society, or economy. Many organisations group their sustainability activities together
under a Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) policy. The CIPS Sustainability Index uses the academic definition of social, economic and environmental criteria to underpin its methodology and approach. A key element in being recognised as a sustainable
business is to understand the sustainability credentials of your supply base. This is both from a pure sustainability standpoint, i.e. wanting to use suppliers where possible who have the same values, but also as part of business risk strategy.
Our objective is to provide high-quality management and computing services that assist organisations to make the most of their information systems. This includes the provision of services that meet the client's stated requirements and are delivered on time.
Our quality objectives are pursued by the application of a proven Quality Management System that meets and goes beyond the requirements of ISO9001:2000 Plus TickIT.
For our clients, our continued commitment to ISO 9001 gives the assurance that we are applying rigorous quality processes to all of our business activities. We are also undertaking a programme of continuous improvement to deliver greater benefits to our
clients in the future.
Information and information systems are important business assets that have value and therefore need to be adequately protected. Our Information Security Management System ensures protection of the Confidentiality, Availability and Integrity of the company's
and clients' information assets from identified threats thus ensuring continuity of services and preventing damage to the business and its reputation.
Our commitment to ISO 27001 gives the assurance to our clients that we are applying appropriate security to our business activities, which includes a programme of continuous improvement.
