PDMS awarded the Intellect Business Professional Certificate
20 March 2013
PDMS is delighted to announce that they have been awarded the Intellect Business Professional Certificate (BPC).
The Business Professional Certificate (BPC) has been established by techUK (formerly Intellect), the UK trade association for the IT, telecoms and electronics industries, to identify companies with professional and thorough business processes in place and a commitment to higher standards. This is a significant achievement for PDMS who are the first company on the Isle of Man to receive this prestigious award, and one of only 25 companies in total to receive the accreditation.
In order to become BPC certified, PDMS have undergone a rigorous process that covers their entire business operations. They were required to provide evidence of their procedures in each of ten performance areas: Professional Indemnity, Information Security Policy, Business Continuity, Project Management, Proposal Review, Customer Care, Corporate and Social Responsibility, Human Resources, Customer References and Optional Escrow, and in a large number of performance criteria under each of these areas.
The project to achieve BPC status was overseen by PDMS' Quality & Standards Manager, Simon Edwards who commented, "The Business Professional Certificate complements our existing ISO Quality Standard accreditations by highlighting not only the fact that we adhere to best practice, but also the professionalism of our organisation and people".
Managing Director of PDMS UK, Giles Milner was officially presented with the certificate at techUK's Board Meeting where he explained "We have been very impressed with how easy the scheme has been to engage with and it is really positive to get further external endorsement of the processes we use to run our business.
The BPC was created to provide SMEs in particular a relevant and fit for purpose 'stamp' of professionalism. Professional organisations create confidence and trust in their customers, suppliers, staff and other stakeholders, which results in reduced costs, increased profits and an enhanced reputation for themselves and the industry as a whole.
