What is Management System Maintenance?

Management System Maintenance is required by all international standards and many regulatory bodies to ensure the continual improvement and preservation of an organization's management system.

Why outsource your maintenance program?

Outsourcing over the last couple of years has become a contentious issue for many organizations. Even government officials are feeling the pressure as they try to cut bottom-line costs by outsourcing jobs.

Security managers have been feeling similar pressures. Caught at the mercy of an economy that is calling for hiring freezes, cuts in training budgets and stuck in the crosshairs of management directives to boost the bottom line, many organizations are turning to alternative approaches to manage their operations, maintenance, and risk management needs.

Among these new and alternative approaches is the use of well trained and competent experts that can facilitate the management of your system in a more tactical fashion at a fraction of the cost than a full-time resource. These tactics include the formation of vendor partnerships to outsource processes and build cost-cutting approaches to traditionally high cost maintenance tasks. With the goal of lowering costs and improving efficiencies, managers across the operational spectrum find themselves integrating these new approaches as a vital part of their management system monitoring process.

Outsourcing enables budget flexibility. It lets organizations pay for only the services they need and when they need them. It also reduces the need to hire and train specialized staff, brings in expertise from the outside, and reduces capital expense, yielding better control of operating costs. The outsourcing arrangement can change as your maintenance needs change.
