This case study highlights some of the business drivers, benefits derived and, in particular, the cost benefits arising by taking an integrated approach along with the critical project successes.

It took less than a year for an IMS team from the company working with Worcester-based management system integration specialists Sapira LLP, to complete the challenging programme, the results of which have been successfully audited by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
