What is IMS Software?
An Integrated Management System (IMS) integrates all of an organization’s systems and processes into one complete framework, enabling an organization to work as a single unit with unified objectives.
Organizations often focus on management systems individually, often in silos and sometimes even in conflict. A quality team is concerned with the QMS, often an EHS manager handles both Environmental and Health and Safety issues, or a SHEQ Manager handles Safety, Health, Environment and Quality, etc.

What are Integrated Management Systems?
An integrated management system is a single system designed to manage multiple aspects of an organization’s operations in line with multiple standards, such as those for quality, environmental and health and safety management. Most businesses already have systems — either formal or informal — for dealing with these issues; however, what many managers don't realize is the degree to which they are duplicating processes or creating unnecessary extra work for their staff. Ultimately, safety, environmental management and quality control have many common points, and all work towards the goal of making your organization more effective and efficient.
